Alila Jabal Akhdar is located in the central part of the Al-Hajar Mountains and offers a gateway to the incredible history, culture and nature of the region. This rugged, mountainous region is one of Oman's most fascinating vacation destinations, thanks to the breathtaking landscapes that include Jebel Shams, Oman's highest mountain, and Jabal Akhdar, which means “Green Mountain” in Arabic and is the fruit bowl of Oman. Away from the hustle and bustle, this region offers an escape into solitude. The resort is surrounded by mountains, uninhabited villages, caves and canyons, and countless small roads that lead to new valleys and vistas.
The resort is close to the Saiq Plateau, a sprawling high plateau surrounded by rugged peaks and steep gorges. The area around the resort is particularly known for the cultivation of walnuts, pomegranates and famous damask roses, which bloom from March to May and cover the mountain side in a pink robe. Take a stroll through the rose terraces for an unforgettable experience. The roses harvested each year are used to make Oman rose water, a staple in every Omani household used as a culinary flavor, fragrance and remedy. The area is also a treasure for history and culture lovers who can explore the many cultural sites in the cities of Nizwa, Bahla and Ebri.
