After yesterday’s overnight foray into the desert, we’re covered with sand and dust. How about a dip in the pool? Today we’re stopping by the Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel, located 26 kilometers up a steep, winding road that requires a four-wheel drive as confirmed at the police checkpoint at the base of the mountain. That’s a first!
The hotel sits on the edge of a canyon looking toward the desert of Wahiba Sands. The location feels a million miles away from anything familiar but the welcoming Omani hospitality, food and décor (and frankincense) bring the experience of being there back down to earth in the best possible way.
Kick off your flip-flops and enjoy!
