If you’re short on time, we can’t think of a better location on our books for a one-week holiday. Salalah feels a little off-the-beaten-track, yet it’s a microcosm of everything Oman has to offer. You can pack in the gorgeous scenery, culture, adventure and tropical beaches while staying in a super hotel.
This holiday was inspired by a research trip two of the ETG team took to Oman. They fell in love with Salalah and couldn't wait to go back on holiday with their own families and felt a trip just like this one would be ideal.
This holiday would work well for couples short on time or families wanting a February or October half-term getaway.
- Explore the otherworldly desert landscape. In Salalah, unusually, it is broken up by pockets of lush green scenery courtesy of the annual Indian monsoon
- An exciting day or even a whole night under the stars in the mysterious Empty Quarter, one of the largest sand deserts on earth
- Discover fantastic beaches and a wild coastline; where papaya and banana plantations thrive, and enormous green-blue sinkholes are surrounded by dramatic mountains
- Immerse yourself in an unfamiliar yet welcoming culture. The ruins of ancient cities will evoke the glory days of the incense trading route
