New Experiences for Thrill-Seekers at Alila Jabal Akhdar
Far more than thread linen counts, suite sizes, and amenities, what most guests remember when they stay with Alila Hotels & Resorts is the experiences they get and the memories they take away.
2017 will see one of Alila’s flagship resorts, Alila Jabal Akhdar, reach new heights. The stunning property, which lies 2,000 metres above sea-level in the Al Hajar mountain range in Oman, has drawn on its dramatic surroundings to offer guests the chance to see the region through a Via-Ferrata – a protected climbing route built to international standards. Offering two different experiences at Level 2 and Level 5 and lead by expert Omani guides, this is perfect for adventure seekers of all levels.
BEST FOR THRILL-SEEKERS – VIA FERRATA CAVE EXPERIENCE
Adrenaline junkies will love the Via Ferrata Cave Affair. After completing a short trek, guests will cross an exposed 20-metre high rope, walking over a cave mouth, traversing along the side of the canyon and ascending into a steep gully. The adrenaline-pumping route is interspersed with gentle hiking through the wild olive trees and mountain greenery. It is led by expert guides who share stories of the local region whilst assisting with the climb. Finally, the hike winds its way back up the mountain so guests can spend the rest of the stay enjoying the hotel’s stunning views from their own private balcony. The new Via Ferrata Cave Affair Experience starts from OMR 35++ / US$ 90++ per person for a 2-hour experience. It is level 5 and requires a degree of fitness.





BEST FOR A TASTE OF FUN – THE ADVENTURE TREK
Guests still wanting to enjoy the spectacular views from the Via-Ferrata without the hair-raising heights of the Cave Experience will love this 90-minute trek. After the initial steep decline down the mountain face guests will follow a path which gradually leads down into the wadi, passing through some of the most spectacular mountainous scenery. Here discover Al Khutaymi, a hidden village within a cave in the wadi floor. After trekking for a further 15-minutes, guests will have the chance to enjoy a refreshing dip in a stunning pool in the Green Mountains before hiking back to the hotel for some well-deserved R&R. The new Adventure Trek Experience starts from OMR 30++ / US$ 78++ per person for a 1.5-hour experience. It is level 2 and require some level of fitness.

COME SMELL THE OMANI ROSES - CELEBRATE THE 2017 ROSE HARVEST
AT ALILA JABAL AKHDAR



22 February 2017 - This year, guests at Alila Jabal Akhdar, will be able to celebrate the rose harvest in Oman with a rose-inspired experience.

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. Lying in prize position, overlooking the 7,000 Damask roses covering the mountain range, is Alila Jabal Akhdar, which sits 2,500 meters above sea-level and enjoys stunning views over the Al Hajar mountain range.

Throughout the rose season, guests can book a special two-night Rose Experience. It offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with a guided tour through the Jabal Akhdar rose terraces – a truly spectacular sight – and enjoy a soothing rose petal bath with a glass of chilled sparkling rose wine upon their return to the resort. Finally, indulge in a specially concocted Spa Alila Roses treatment, which benefits from the medicinal properties of a naturally infused rose petal oil.

Alila Jabal Akhdar is a design-forward hotel with 86 beautiful rooms and suites, seamlessly blending an eco-design of local stone with traditional Omani architecture and stunning surroundings. Vintage trunks decorate the rooms and the lobby is filled with abstract patterns of roses in a nod to the local perfume production.
