This year, guests at Alila Jabal Akhdar, will be able to celebrate the rose harvest in Oman with a rose-inspired experience.
Every year, from the end of March until mid-May, the rugged, rocky mountain landscape of Jabal Akhdar - the Green Mountain in Arabic - is transformed into a spectacular shade of pink. Lying in prize position, overlooking the 7,000 Damask roses covering the mountain range, is Alila Jabal Akhdar, which sits 2,500 meters above sea-level and enjoys stunning views over the Al Hajar mountain range.
Throughout the rose season, guests can book a special two-night Rose Experience. It offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with a guided tour through the Jabal Akhdar rose terraces – a truly spectacular sight – and enjoy a soothing rose petal bath with a glass of chilled sparkling rose wine upon their return to the resort. Finally, indulge in a specially concocted Spa Alila Roses treatment, which benefits from the medicinal properties of a naturally infused rose petal oil.
Alila Jabal Akhdar is a design-forward hotel with 86 beautiful rooms and suites, seamlessly blending an eco-design of local stone with traditional Omani architecture and stunning surroundings. Vintage trunks decorate the rooms and the lobby is filled with abstract patterns of roses in a nod to the local perfume production. Spa Alila is filled with an aroma that is reminiscent of an old Oman, a mist of oils grounded in frankincense and juniper berry. There are seven treatment rooms, a Vichy shower room, Jacuzzis and an array of Asian-inspired treatments and excellent massages. On arrival guests are greeted with a refreshing rosewater & elderflower spritzer. The hotel also offers a wealth of other experiences including the brand new Via Ferrata experiences, a protected climbing route built to international standards. With two different routes at Level 2 and Level 5 and lead by expert Omani guides, it is a perfect adventure for thrill seekers of all levels.
The two-night ROSES Experience starts from USD1,109 per couple based on two sharing with daily dinner, bed and breakfast. It also includes the guided tour of the Rose terraces, rose petal bath and bubbles and a Spa Alila signature Rose treatment per person. It is valid for stays from 15 March – 13 May 2017 (Rose Season).
