Juweira Boutique Hotel
Why we like it
- Set on the picturesque Salalah
- Two large swimming pools for cooling off
- Artfully styled interiors with an Oriental theme
- Excursions and watersports, from snorkelling to whale watching
- Three restaurants offering varied cuisine, from traditional Omani dishes to American breakfast buffets
- Apartments have a choice of one, two or three bedrooms and are ideal for larger families or groups of friends
Visit after the ‘khareef’ (monsoon) and you’ll find the area around Salalah verdant, green and full of life – perfect for exploring the surrounding jebel.
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!

Salalah is a colourful, subtropical region of Oman, blessed with a comfortable climate that brings welcome relief from the surrounding desert. The Juweira makes the best of its location with fantastic pools, glorious beaches and plenty of terraces from which to soak up every last drop of Omani sun. The rooms here are very different to elsewhere in the sultanate, with humbug-striped walls and colourful prints a refreshing change to the dark woods of the desert regions. We love the apartments and Marina Suites which overlook the pretty marina. Dining is varied, with a choice of Al Fanar, serving international cuisine, and As Sammak for simple, fresh seafood. Al Boom also serves pool side snacks throughout the day. The activities on offer are plentiful, with snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing and dolphin and whale watching trips available in resort. The hotel can also arrange hiking excursions, speed boat trips and horse riding.
Best time to be there
Oman's climate differs from one area to another. It is hot and humid in the coastal areas in the summer between May and August, while it is hot and dry in the interior with the exception of the higher mountains, which enjoy a moderate climate round the year. The climate is best from September through to April.
