Oman


Enter a world of romance and magic in one of the Middle East’s prettiest, most diverse and captivating countries. Explore ancient imperial forts, rugged coasts, beautifully serene beaches and deserts, and as the earliest known settlements date back over five thousand years, prepare to be enchanted by an area rich in its own unique Arabian culture and history.


With its beautiful natural harbour, the mystical capital Muscat offers a myriad of wonderful sights, from the famous Grand Mosque to the ancient waterfront fish market. Pick up a bargain in the bustling Muttrah Souq, explore the charming old port area and marvel at the incredible splendour of the main palace flanked by 16th century Portuguese forts.


Visit the glorious beaches and dramatic landscapes of the southern coastline. Start the day with a magical boat trip to watch dolphins and whales or tour Oman’s spectacular Grand Canyon with its mountain villages, fruit orchards and terrace farming unchanged from centuries past.


With so many fabulous beaches, most of Oman’s superb luxury hotels and resorts offer a wide array of watersports such as sailing, windsurfing and diving. The towns and resorts are full of colourful restaurants serving a wide range of international and local specialities. Wherever you go in Oman, you’ll be treated to wonderful displays of traditional arts, dance and music and will enjoy age old customs and hospitality that will help make your holiday a truly unique Arabian treat.
