Seemingly endless blue skies and sunny days await in Oman; and Autumn through to Spring is the ideal time to enjoy them. In addition, a manageable 7-hour direct flight and an authentic experience of true Arabia with plenty of luxury thrown in make this a fantastic honeymoon choice.
Flying straight into Muscat and checking into the Chedi allows you to begin in style. This gorgeous beachside hotel is designed with couples in mind and is a far cry from the larger glitzy hotels some parts of Arabia are known for. Muscat itself is a very pleasant Arabian capital. A tour of the city will reveal some of its sites – including Sultan Qaboos Mosque – and allow time at the old souk and fish souk to enjoy the lively trading atmosphere and perhaps even engage in some haggling in order to snag yourself some jewellery or carpet bargains.
Honeymoon Highlights of Oman
- Take a cruise around Muscat to see the city through the eyes of ancient seafarers. You could even catch your own fish and cook it up for lunch on board or on a secluded beach.
- Our private mobile desert camp in Wahiba Sands is perfectly placed for desert sunsets and spectacular night skies.
- Try your hand at bartering and seek out authentic Omani treasures in Nizwa's souks and wonderfully lively Friday auction, where locals come to parade their livestock.
- The Al Hajar Mountains are where to get active. Our guides can organise trekking or cycling through the countryside, exploring small villages and revealing spectacular scenery.
Muscat is just one of the many places along Oman’s 600 miles of coastline. If you tire of relaxing on the beach, why not head out to sea in style aboard a private yacht in search of the many dolphins off the coast? Snorkelling is fun too, as the crystal clear waters are bursting with sea life. Alternatively, we can organise a visit to Raz al Jinz, a sandy bay where green turtles come in to nest throughout the year.
There is so much more to Oman than the coast. The journey to the Al Hajar Mountains passes through valleys, canyons and traditional settlements. You can walk through forest-clad gorges in the foothills or meander through ancient cliff-top villages. There are some excellent small boutique hotels, many of which have incredible mountain views. The ancient town of Nizwa is one of the region’s hubs, with a lively souk full of locals and several impressive forts.
Switching south will take you into the wonderful desert landscape of the Wahiba Sands. Rolling dunes allow for exhilarating camel and 4wd rides, and stunning desert sunsets come as standard as you relax with a sundowner at your desert tent for the night.
