Spa & Leisure

Al Nahda Resort and Spa

The temperature in Oman makes the idea of bringing the outside in a beautiful art of the way of life when the weather permits, and as such the architecture of the spa is very open. There’s a gym, yoga, an aerobic studio and pools to relax in, but the facilities for treatments go well beyond a standard facial.

Pampering is a given in this luxurious environment, but therapies also include holistic chakra treatments and bio stimulation at the opposite end of the spectrum. Slimming and body shaping as well as therapeutic body masks, hot stone massages and Thai massage are all available so you can choose the kind of spa experience you want.

Dunes by Al Nahda

What would ultimate luxury be without a little spa experience? Dunes by Al Nahda Spa Resort continues its unique experience in the Sand Spa, where they offer hot sand therapy, a treatment that combines the beneficial effect of the heat from the sand with its naturally occurring minerals.

Start by using the sunken hot sand tubs to cover yourself in sanitised sand up to your neck, then you’re wrapped in fabric with fresh fruits over your eyes and a liquid aloe vera mask to your face. A mix of milk, wine and oils are then softly poured over the body and after 20 minutes before you move to a relaxation area and a creamy yogurt is applied to your body. The treatment then finishes with a massage. If that doesn’t take your fancy, they have a number of other equally unusual treatments on offer as well.

Hotel & Accommodation

Al Nahda Resort and Spa

In 30 acres of gardens, Al Nahda Resort and Spa is an oasis of luxurious tranquility and calm in the heat of Oman. Apartments, villas and bungalows are all available to stay in, each offering the same high standards of service and opulent design, surrounded by what was historically a mango orchard.

The resort has three restaurants and two bars to its name. Khalab is the all-day-dining restaurant, open year-round, serving both international buffet-style and à la carte choices. Nozha is an al fresco dining area catering to a more casual evening serving pizzas and barbecue style meals, Samar offers Italian food, and then there is a pool bar and Waha Bar for post-dinner drinks.

Dunes by Al Nahda

A luxury resort in the desert, The Dunes in Wadi Al Abiyad, meaning ‘white sands’ in Arabic, is the closest desert resort to Muscat and the United Arab Emirates. A unique experience, it is made up of 50 ultra-luxury guest bedrooms distributed across 30 guest tents, each featuring full en-suite bathrooms and separate seating areas.

The open air restaurant, Fleur, brings the desert experience to life with rich breakfasts and alfresco dining under the stars making it supremely romantic or a family holiday that will become a treasured memory. Drinks at sunset as you take in the view of Oman is also a magic moment.
