  • We recommend the suites and Balcony terrace rooms for the added space inside and out and for the views

A&K Top Tip

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.

Guest Testimonial

I think anyone, from any background, with any level of expectation, would love the Alila. This is a special place and we were very much put at our ease and made to feel at home.

Opened in 2011 this property was designed and built in tribute to the charm of the mountain, life style and the modern way of life. The Sahab Hotel has entirely adopted this new tourism concept by blending the ancient landscape of the Jabal Al Akhdar Mountains with traditional Omani architecture and an incredibly spectacular view. Décor is rustic chic with traditional Omani touches to reflect Sahab's positioning of this distinctive experience.

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.
