Top places to visit in Oman for health & wellness
Secluded and unspoiled, Oman’s Musandam Peninsula is one of the country’s best kept secrets. The dramatic Hajar mountains cascade down into the aquamarine waters of the Arabian Gulf, creating spellbinding vistas reminiscent of the Norwegian Fjords. Six Senses Zighy Bay offers fantastic and unique experiences in these untouched landscapes, including incredible diving, hikes, yacht charters, and paragliding.
Oman’s capital city is a bustling hub of old and new, bursting with rich character. Head to Muttrah Souq, one of the oldest in Arabia, for traditional souvenirs, delve into the country’s history with forts and museums aplenty, or enjoy its fantastic beaches, perfect for paddle boarding, snorkelling, and kite surfing.
A region of wide, open landscapes and authentic Omani villages, Jabal Akhdar offers a glimpse into the real Oman, away from the busyness of the capital. This secluded location and stunning mountain views are home to Alila Jabal Akhdar, a peaceful oasis where you can drink in the surrounding views from the infinity pool or relax with nourishing spa treatments.

Diving in the Gulf of Oman
The Gulf of Oman is home to some of the country’s best dive sites. Plunge into the sapphire waters and enter a world of fascinating marine biodiversity, with turtles, and even whale sharks from May-October. The diving potential of these plentiful waters was relatively undiscovered until the 1980s, meaning they’re largely unspoiled and free from tourists.

Experience Oman from a different perspective, gliding along the coast in a traditional Omani Dhow. This luxury boat trip will take you past picturesque rural villages and shimmering coastal fjords on a scenic route through the country’s unique coastline, stopping for a gourmet lunch prepared by the onboard chef.
A desert camp with Bedouins
Despite Oman’s rich diversity of landscapes, its vast desert area remains an unmissable attraction, offering authentic experiences in a unique location. Venture to the middle of the desert, experiencing the warmth of Bedouin hospitality as they welcome you into a traditional tented camp. Ride camels and climb sand dunes by day, then bask in the light of the spellbinding Milky Way by night.
