From dramatic gorges to crystal clear sinkholes and beautiful luxury resorts, Oman is full of extraordinary surprises. Sitting quietly on the edge of the Arabian Peninsula, what the Sultanate lacks in gleaming skyscrapers and elaborate attractions compared to its flashy neighbours, it more than makes up for with its natural beauty. And this is not at the expense of fantastic places to stay, as it’s home to some wonderful hotels too.
The beaches are dazzling, but Oman has plenty more to offer than a coastal getaway. Here, you will find a staggering diversity of landscapes, from lush greenery to golden deserts, with sweeping mountain ranges in between. With our distinctive, tailor-made holidays to Oman, you can enjoy experiences ranging from swimming with dolphins to exploring ancient forts, from camping in the desert to ascending canyons by 4WD.
Even with a short stop in Muscat (perhaps en route to India, Bhutan or The Maldives), Experience Travel Group will ensure you get a true flavour of Oman (and a traditional snack of dates and cardamom coffee!) Visit the remarkable Grand Mosque, the frankincense-infused souqs, the impressive Opera House… and you’ll still have plenty of time to catch the Arabian sunshine by the pool, trying some of the delicious local food in between. Think platters of Mezze with Indian and East African twists, featuring pomegranate, mint, aubergine and slow-cooked lamb.
