    Alila Hotels & Resorts, a leading Asian boutique hotelier, is to add three new properties to its lifestyle collection in 2014. Marking the group’s entry into the Middle East, Alila Jabal Akhdar Oman will open in March, followed by Alila Seminyak Bali and Alila Fort Bishangarh Jaipur- India in late 2014.ALILA JABAL AKHDAR – ALILA’S FIRST RESORT IN THE MIDDLE EAST
    Alila Jabal Akhdar will be the first luxury resort in the stunning mountainous region of Jabal Akhdar in Oman. Set 2000 metres above sea level, under two hours’ drive from Muscat, the resort will provide access to one of Oman’s most spectacular and untapped areas.

    Overlooking a dramatic gorge with views of the Al Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar, which means ‘Green Mountain’ in Arabic, will be a haven for the adventurous, nature lovers and those seeking an escape from the desert heat. The resort will feature 78 rooms, six loft suites, a cliff-side restaurant, pool, Spa Alila, fitness centre and two Jabal Villas, with two bedrooms, its own pool, Jacuzzi and steam room.

    The design of the resort is richly inspired by the Omani culture, evident in its traditional artisanal craftsmanship and the use of locally sourced materials. The Rose is the inspiration for much of the interior design, as the Jabal Akhdar region is famous for its fragrant pink roses that blanket the mountainside in springtime. The area is also renowned for its fresh fruits, in particular pomegranates, which during September and October transform the area into a fruit paradise. The fruit will feature as a staple ingredient in Spa Alila Jabal Akhdar signature treatments.

    New ‘Alila Experiences’ will be crafted especially for the resort, centred upon five themes covering cultural learning, conscious living, active spirits, culinary arts and couple celebration, enticing guests to discover the history and culture of the region. The Alila Experience strives to create ‘surprisingly different’ authentic destination experiences – from palm-shadowed picnics in remote Wadis to 1001 Stars-lit-dinners at the edge of the mountains.
