When asked for a holiday destination that covers all bases, we often find ourselves recommending travel to Oman, which combines adventure and romance with white-sandy beaches and luxury hotels. And what with Oman’s dramatic scenery, even a short trip will engage all the senses, making it a trip to remember.
With direct flights from London to Muscat, you can be in sunnier climes in under 7 and a half hours. British Airways fly direct from London Heathrow but Oman Air is otherwise a more than favourable alternative. The slightly longer flight time is a small compromise when faced with year-round sunshine and and spectacular landscapes. Choose between a stylish beach and mountain trip, combining The Chedi in Muscat before venturing to Alila Jabal Akhdar in the Al Hajar mountains. Or head further afield visiting Salalah’s Empty Quarter before finishing in Muscandam, staying in the acclaimed Six Senses Zighy Bay, surrounded by ancient forts and hilltop villages.
Surprisingly, Oman is famed for its scuba diving. Explore the bounteous coral reef from either hotel (Six Senses even has its very own dive centre). Similarly, you can explore the coast’s colourful marine life with snorkels. Furthermore, you can try to glimpse dolphins and whales, taking out a boat to skim the coastline. There are also kitesurfing schools on Muscat beach. Family-friendly activities and hotels with glorious scenery. What’s not to love?
