But it is now a vibrant and modern incarnation of the Arab world, with a wide range of luxury hotels and resorts resting atop beautiful palm-fringed beaches. Oman’s development has clung to traditional Arabian values making this unique destination a treasure for experienced travellers.

Oman’s shore is lined with soft sandy beaches and the landscape is a mixture of mesmerising desert vistas, towering peaks and lush green oases. It is yet to be overburdened by tourism, giving you the opportunity to take in the wondrous history and stunning sights in relative seclusion from other visitors.

The country is a nature lover’s paradise too, with turtle nesting sites and plenty of opportunities for whale and dolphin watching.
