Arid Hilltop Resorts

Alila Jabal Akhdar in Oman Sits High Above Sea Level

— May 15, 2014 — World
Alila Jabal Akhdar is a resort situated high in the hills of Oman, with expansive views of the surrounding gorge and mountainous region. The hotel is actually over 2,000 meters above sea level, and the landscape is extremely arid and hot.

The hotel itself is made from stones, which gives it a slightly medieval feel. For those who are creatures of comfort, the villas are very spacious and provide ample amounts of privacy without blocking any of the surrounding views. Considering how stunning the area is, it would be a shame to build a hotel that didn't allow guests to take in its beauty from the comfort of their own rooms. While the visit may be hot to the Alila Jabal Akhdar resort, the overall experience will certainly make up for it.
