This tranquil and stylish 158-room property is set on 21 acres of landscaped gardens fronting the Gulf of Oman. Accommodations feature a minimalist décor, Gulf of Oman or mountain views, and open-plan baths with rainfall showers. Club-level rooms provide guests with access to an exclusive lounge for afternoon tea, cocktails and evening canapés. Six dining options are available, including The Beach Restaurant, which offers superb seafood. Amenities are plentiful and feature two floodlit tennis courts, a Balinese spa with 13 treatment rooms and a 16,150-square-foot health club with a well-equipped gym (personal trainers are available). Additionally, the resort has three swimming pools, including a 340-foot pool flanked by sun loungers. We recommend ignoring the gray-sand beach, as it is lackluster and of little interest. Dolphin- and whale-watching excursions, guided hikes, snorkeling, golfing and boating can be arranged.
