    Oman

    Luxurious beach resorts and desert glamping

    Oman offers dramatic landscapes peppered with forts and oases, magnificent empty deserts, rugged mountain ranges, world-class diving and a far south that is surprisingly green. Its warm people and old eastern imperial culture add immensely to its appeal.
     
    As Oman is a relatively small country, it is easy to combine beach around Muscat with a tented experience in the desert for a couple of nights. These privately set up luxury camps will take you far away from other tourists and into the stunning wilderness. 
     
    For those wanting to add in some exhilarating adventure, we can plan in some canyoning in the wadis or trekking in the mountains, or we can arrange an extensive desert trip right into the Empty Quarter with 4x4’s and a fully supported mobile tented camp.

    Area in Focus

    The best way to explore the stunning fjords and mountains of the remote Mussandam Peninsula in the far north is by private dhow, on our own specialist routing. 

    We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.

    When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.

    If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.

    Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.

    We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.

    We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.

    The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.

    Stories from Oman

    Inspiration

    Blog

    While I thought I had seen the most spectacular and dramatic ravine scenery on my visit to the USA’s Grand Canyon, nothing prepared me for the staggering landscapes and awe-inspiring geology that awaited me in the Al Hajar Mountain range in Oman.
    Written by Antonia Black, Destination Expert
    A highlight of my recent trip to Oman was without a doubt exploring Oman’s remarkable, yet little-visited province of Dhofar. A refreshing retreat with picturesque palm-fringed beaches, and home to one of the most remarkable deserts in the region, The Empty Quarter.
    With a rich cultural heritage, buckets of adventure and striking desert and canyon landscapes, Oman is an Arabian gem, and my recent visit has only reaffirmed why it should be on everyone’s lists of places to visit, and sooner rather than later.
    Alila Jabal Akhdar is the jewel of Jabal Akhdar. Perfectly positioned in the mountains, the property is remarkably camouflaged within its epic surroundings, an area of extreme natural beauty and overlooks one of Oman’s most breathtaking ravines.
