Whether you have a week or a weekend to get away, we know your vacation time is precious. That’s why our location is at a very convenient distance from some of the focal tourist attractions in the Sultanate of Oman.

Wadi Shab, a popular and a must see place in Oman, is at an approximate distance of just 3 kms from the resort. If you are longing for a place to take a dip in fresh water or even to cliff jump, Shab is the Wadi to visit. This Wadi is arguably one of the most gorgeous destinations in Oman. Beyond the breathtaking entrance, the wadi rewards you with views of aquamarine pools, waterfalls and terraced plantations; kingfishers add glorious splashes of colour. For the adventurous, there are plenty of opportunities for (discreet) swimming and a visit to a partially submerged cave.

Wadi Dayqah an excellent tourist spot in Oman is approximately 76 kms away from here and 100 kms from Muscat on the way to our Resort. With water, lush green shade and relaxation, this beautiful setting also houses a beautiful dam for you to consider. So if you’re longing for interesting geological adventure or simply want to escape the monotony of everyday life, consider visiting this locale.

Bimmah Sink hole situated at the Hawiyat Najm Park in Northern Oman, is another attraction at a distance of 25kms from the resort. The water in the pool is in a unique shade of vibrant turquoise, the pool roughly 550 meters from the sea, is 40 meters wide and about 20 meters under the surface. One can find the little fish in the pool, the one’s that tickle your toes during a fish spa pedicure!

The Tomb of Bibi Mariam, in the Ancient City of Qalhat is situated approximately 4 kms from Wadi Shab Resort. “Bibi” means “lady” or “dame” from the ancient Arabic use of the word. Qalhat (like Muscat, Sohar and Quriyat) was an important trading city in the 14th and 15th centuries. They have found pottery and other artifacts from Persia and even from as far away as China. Qalhat remains on UNESCO’s tentative list of cultural heritage sites and was Oman’s first capital! Qalhat was visited by Marco Polo in the 13th century, but he refers to it as Calatu. Qalhat is also described by the famous Muslim traveler, Ibn Battuta, of the 14th century who was known as “the Marco Polo of the Muslim world“. “The Tomb of Bibi Mariam“, also called “The Mausoleum of Lady Mariam”,  is another famous tourist spot and a must visit when in the Sultanate.

 

Sur, renowned as the Dhow City, is approximately 70 kms from our location, and is a placid sea coast town with striking traditional dwellings. It is a pleasant getaway and one of the most important towns in the Eastern region. A trip through Sur's labyrinth of streets reveals many fine old houses with carved doors and arabesque windows. From the corniche, the dhows in the harbour can be seen against the scenic backdrop of the Sea of Oman. On the way to Sur one can also stop over the fishing village of Quriyat, which was a major port centuries ago.
