Dhofar’s newest luxury hotel, Anantara Salalah – Al Baleed Resort, developed by a joint venture between Omran Hotels & Resorts & Musstir, is set to open this summer – just in time for the upcoming season known locally as ‘Khareef’, which brings cooler temperatures and lush greenery.
Welcoming guests with traditional Omani style, the resort, located between a natural lagoon and the beach, will be managed by Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas. Carefully designed to reflect Dhofar’s rich heritage, the resort’s striking Dhofari design featuring intricate artistic details is inspired by the region’s iconic coastal fortresses and is surrounded by towering palms, magnificent trees, tropical gardens and lush water features.
