The Height of Romance at Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort
This Valentine’s Day
Intrepid couples have plenty of choice, with a range of exciting activities designed to immerse them into the surrounding culture, history and landscape. Whether it is hiking through the valleys accompanied by a ‘Mountain Guru’, paying a visit to the nearby souqs, learning the art of Omani cuisine with cookery lessons or practicing sun salutations atop the mountain, there is something for everyone. For the perfect photo opportunity, adrenalin-seekers can even try the Ultimate Jabal Activity Wall, allowing them to navigate the mountainside using a via ferrata and ziplines for unsurpassed views of the vast valley below.
Meanwhile, those looking for a slower pace of life can head to the world-renowned Anantara Spa to sample the special ‘Red is Forever’ package. Surrounded by red rose petals in a private treatment room, the two-hour bonding spa experience can be tailor-made depending on each couple’s preferences. Whether it is a cleansing hammam, soothing massage or replenishing body wrap, it will leave guests feeling refreshed, renewed and reconnected.
As the sun sets over the mountain, loved ones can spend quality time together whilst taking in the views from the privacy of their balcony before savouring exquisite cuisine in one of the hotel’s iconic settings. On 14th February, couples will be treated to a Grand Valentine’s Buffet at Al Maisan complete with a welcome drink upon arrival, a choice of cuisines from around the globe, and not forgetting a red rose for ladies. Those looking to surprise their other halves with the ultimate gastronomic experience can try Anantara’s ‘Dining by Design’, offering the chance to dine at the spectacular cliff-edge platform, Diana’s Point, named after Diana, Princess of Wales, who visited this exact spot in November 1986. Surrounded by flickering candles, guests can enjoy an unparalleled private dining experience courtesy of their very own chef and served by a personal butler as the revel in the magnificent surroundings.
Couples can book their romantic mountaintop getaway starting from OMR 300++ (AED 2,865++) per room for two nights.
