It’s truly a distinctive proposition for travellers, and we look forward to leveraging our unique position and offerings to deliver amazing vacation experiences that help to put the area on the map as a must-visit destination to the benefit of our broader community.”
A wealth of outdoor activities
The hotel’s amenities include an all-day dining restaurant, specialty restaurant, fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool, as well as a kids’ club and Namm spa offering Thai-inspired treatments.
This property will introduce wellbeing experiences in line with the group’s new wellness concept, focusing on physical vitality and mental health. Guests can expect to be offered activities like mountain running, yoga, pilates, meditation and Thai boxing, as well as experiences focusing on nature, sustainability and adventure suitable for guests of all ages.
Further connecting visitors to the hotel’s spectacular location, future activities are to include educational hiking, cycling and quad-biking to attractions like the historic town of Nizwa.
Business travellers are also catered for with the addition of ample event space. This includes a ballroom for up to 150 people and several adjoining meeting rooms.
The Adventure Park is expected to open later in the year, with highlights such as zip-line rides, a petting zoo and a science centre.
