Full accommodation information

Located some 2,000 metres above sea level and with views of the Al Hajar mountain range, the hotel is a haven for your Oman holiday.

You’ll enjoy a menu inspired by the golden age of Arabic cuisine at the Juniper Restaurant, with excellent vistas across the horizon and meals created with fresh, seasonal produce. Evening drinks can be enjoyed in the chilled out atmosphere of the Rose Lounge. For utter relaxation in the day, head to the Spa Alila, where a sanctuary to wash away the stresses and strains of modern life awaits among the Jacuzzis, Vichy shower room and natural treatments on offer.

Suites and villas are designed in a contemporary manner with authentic touches, boasting plenty of space and privacy and views down the gorge. The wild natural beauty of the region ensures a super quiet spot in which to escape, housed within an area known for its production of the damask rose, which flowers from March to May. A walk through the rose terraces if you’re staying during this period is a must.

The resort's main building and surrounding villas have been thoughtfully designed to harmonise with the natural surroundings. The materials used in their construction mirror the region's native rocks, ensuring minimal disruption to the landscape.

Dedicated to a plastic-free future, Alila Jabal Akhdar has also implemented a stringent zero plastic policy, eradicating single-use plastics to offer guests an eco-friendly experience.

To conserve resources, the resort recycles all wastewater and composts food waste. A flourishing vegetable and herb garden is cultivated on-site, ensuring a sustainable source of fresh, organic ingredients for its culinary delights.

Finally, Alila Jabal Akhdar uses solar energy to heat water, significantly reducing its reliance on conventional energy sources. This commitment to renewable energy and sustainability was acknowledged in 2019, when the resort was awarded Silver EarthCheck status.
