Alila Jabal Akhtar is one of the most beautiful properties I have come across. Built in 2014 and perched at a height of 2,000 m, this luxurious property has made itself a home between the Al Hajar mountains in Oman. Interestingly access to the property is only by 4WD vehicles given the surrounding terrain. Crafted from oodles of local material and embellished with metal grilles and damask roses, the overall vibe of the hotel is very rugged. The showstopper though is nature; almost every ounce of the property offers the most gorgeous views of the age-old mountains and the 600 metre deep ravine below.
Keeping in utmost sync with nature, the property’s Ridge View Suite is highly recommended. Set apart from the main central building, the ridge view suites are nestled on the first floor of the detached blocks and span an impressive 52 sq m space with a view of the stunning mountain gorge. Graced with contemporary design and chic decor, the interiors are decorated with local crafts, dark woods and neutral toned walls. Of course given the Alila name, one can be certain of state-of-the-art amenities and signature luxuries. We’re especially talking about the 40-inch LCD TV and the free standing marble bath tub.
If you’re an Instagram fanatic, step outside onto your private balcony for some amazing pictures and views.
