Why we like it
- Sahab is a unique and tranquil luxury boutique hotel situated on the Saiq Plateau in the western Hajjar Mountains
- Spectacular views over the canyon full of ancient villages and famous terraced farms
- The 27 rooms and suites have been built around the fossil-filled bedrock and boast private outdoor spaces
- The Sahab Restaurant offers an intimate, tranquil dining experience
- Nature lovers paradise with specialties such as fruits trees namely the pomegranate
- We recommend the suites and Balcony terrace rooms for the added space inside and out and for the views
Sahab Hotel is the best location to view and photograph the sunrise and sunset. Purples, reds, oranges and yellows, streak across the sky each clear evening at sunset time. It's a different colour combination every night. A delight for professional and amateur photographers alike.
We particularly appreciated the friendly staff, who got the professional/casual balance just right; the magnificent breakfast spread; the wafts of frankincense; the sunsets; the sheer relaxation provided by the spa; the library; the open fire; the gym that made room for breakfast and, not least, the alcohol licence!

The infinity swimming pool and Jacuzzi with their aquamarine waters are coupled with panoramic views and a Poolside Restaurant serving light menus, refreshments and cocktails. The fossil garden boasts over 5000 sqm of native plants and 270 million years old marine fossils.
Activities on offer really do make the most of the region with hiking trips into the heart of the Jabal Al Akhdar mountain range. Explore the most hair-raising caves as well as observe canyon wildlife in their natural habitat. A magnificent location for star gazing as the clear night sky has almost zero pollution so that the star gazing can be enjoyed in its full. Children will adore the donkey rides through the majestic countryside and finding out all about traditional village culture.
