Far from the bustle of modern life, the region offers an escape to solitude, nature, fresh air and the most amazing panoramic views. The resort is surrounded by mountains, small hamlets, old, uninhabited villages, caves and canyons, as well as countless small roads connecting to new valleys and views. The resort lies close to the Saiq (pronounced ‘Sirq’) Plateau, an extensive upland plateau surrounded by craggy summits and steep gorges. The Mediterranean climate here makes it ideal for the cultivation of many types of fruits. The area around the resort is particularly renowned for growing walnuts, pomegranates and Oman’s famed damask roses, which bloom from March to May, covering the mountain side in swathes of pink. Take a walk through the rose terraces for an unforgettable experience. The roses harvested each year are used to make Omani rose water, a staple in every Omani household used as a culinary flavouring, fragrance and medicinal remedy.
