Every year, from the end of March until mid-May, the rugged, rocky mountain landscape of Jabal Akhdar—the Green Mountain in Arabic—is transformed into a spectacular shade of pink. Overlooking the 7,000 Damask roses covering the mountain range, Alila Jabal Akhdar sits 2,500 meters above sea-level and enjoys stunning views of the Al Hajar mountain range. Come celebrate the rose harvest in Oman this spring with a rose-inspired experience!
Season for roses (and treatments)
Throughout rose season, you can book a special two-night Rose Experience. This allows you the chance to get up close and personal with a guided tour through the Jabal Akhdar rose terraces, and enjoy the soothing rose petal bath with a glass of chilled sparkling rose wine upon your return to the resort. You can also opt to indulge in a specially concocted Spa Alila Roses treatment, which is said to contain medicinal properties from naturally infused rose petal oil.
With 86 beautiful rooms and suites, Alila Jabal Akhdar seamlessly blends an eco-design of local stone with traditional Omani architecture. Vintage trunks decorate the rooms and the lobby is filled with abstract patterns of roses representative of the local perfume production. Spa Alila is filled with an aroma that is reminiscent of an old Oman, a mist of oils grounded in frankincense and juniper berry.
There are seven treatment rooms, a Vichy shower room, Jacuzzis and an array of Asian-inspired treatments and excellent massages. On arrival, guests are greeted with a refreshing rosewater and elderflower spritzer. The hotel also offers other experiences including the brand new Via Ferrata experiences, a protected climbing route built to international standards. With two different routes at Level 2 and Level 5 led by expert Omani guides, it is the perfect adventure for thrill seekers of all levels.
