Anantara takes the concept of the high life to a whole new level with one of the world’s highest resorts. If you love the taste of luxury but don’t want to compromise your sense of adventure, then it might just be the perfect place. Set on a rim of a breath-taking canyon in Hajar Mountains, Oman, this hotel offers dramatic views and some adrenaline-rising activities.
The Canyon View Rooms are spacious, stylish and come with a private balcony. However, if you want to enjoy the landscape to the fullest, book the Cliff Pool Villa. You’ll get your very own infinity pool hanging over the precipice and a spacious sundeck with one the most amazing panoramas you’ve ever seen.
As tempting as it might be to just stay in the pool all day, Anantara has a number of activities on offer that are not to be missed. One of the highest climbing routes in the Middle East (adjusted to different experience levels) and the first zip line in Oman are both in the area. If that’s still not enough to satisfy your appetite for adventure, try mountain biking and cycle up a summit for a spectacular sunrise.
Apart from high intensity exercise, you can also try photography and painting classes, take a cooking lesson or watch a film under the stars. And if somehow you still have more time to spare, head to the Souq for souvenir shopping or indulge in a spa treatment!
