Located on the Gulf of Oman with over 1,000 miles of glorious Indian Ocean coastline, Oman holidays combine the best luxury beach resorts with a rich cultural heritage dating back over 5,000 years. With desert and mountain oases, ancient forts and hill villages to discover, there’s a tremendous amount to explore in this inspiring country.
Oman holidays will surround you with Arabic beauty, from swaying palm trees and sparkling white sands to traditional reed houses and luxurious hotels. Whether you are on your honeymoon or on a family holiday there is plenty to see and do on your Oman holiday. From the World Heritage Sites to the fantastic shopping, Oman is a traditional country full of culture, diverse scenery and hospitable people.
Musandam Peninsula is located at the northern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, and well worth a visit for a few days to see its ‘fjord’ style coastline backed by dramatic mountains. Spend a few days at the luxurious but traditionally designed Six Senses Zighy Bay, reached by car and 4WD from Dubai airport - perfect as a Multi Centre holiday. A must do is a desert drive along the sand dunes under the guidance of highly experienced drivers – an unforgettable experience. We also recommend a night or two in the desert, staying at one of the attractive inland resort camps. Here, you’ll have the chance to go camel riding or try your hand at falconry.
When it comes to tourism, Oman holidays are still in there infancy compared with neighbouring Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Well planned and slow paced, Oman pursues quality rather than quantity with low rise buildings and traditional design evident throughout. Pleasures here are more refined with fascinating culture and sense of tradition, stunning beaches, awesome scenery and easygoing and respectful hospitality.
The weather in Oman is slightly cooler than Dubai, with temperatures in the period December to March around 22°C, and then beginning to rise to reach a mid-summer peak of 35°C. Rainfall is minimal, although the winter months can see short sharp showers and occasionally high winds coming in from the desert.
