A perfect destination for an exotic, intoxicating and relaxing honeymoon that is also close enough to be explored in just one week. Combine the luxury of The Chedi Muscat with time to soak up the city scene before travelling high up into the Hajar Mountains, where the scenery is totally in contrast to the coast with jagged outcrops, canyons and incredible hilltop views, before returning to the city for a final dose of indulgence and relaxation.
Overnight flight from London to Muscat.
Arrive in Muscat and transfer directly to The Chedi Muscat. Not only is it the smallest luxury hotel in Muscat, in our opinion The Chedi is also one of the most spectacular. The style is bright and fresh without being too decadent and if you’re a water baby you’ll be in heaven with a choice of three different swimming pools, among them Oman’s first infinity pool as well as the longest swimming pool in the Middle East.
Days 3 to 4
Indulge yourselves with treatments from the spa’s wonderful Balinese therapists and take a bite of the many cuisines available at their main restaurant with its four separate cooking stations; or just kick back and relax in the sunshine – bliss.
Once you’ve recuperated from the wedding and travel, you’ll be ready to don your walking shoes and take your direct private transfer up into the stunning Hajar Mountains, where you will find the exquisite Alila Jabal Akhdar.
This is a totally unique property with panoramic mountain vistas, a beautiful pool as well as sumptuous rooms and a vast array of activities including canyon walks, cave exploring and visits to the nearby UNESCO-protected town of Bahla with its ancient fort and famous pottery.
Today will be spent at Alila Jabal Akhdar exploring the mountainous scenery, local villages, wadis and valleys in the surrounding area.
Today you will be met and transferred back to The Chedi Muscat.
Days 8 to 9
To make sure you haven’t missed out on any treats in Muscat, we would recommend having just a few more days lounging at The Chedi before taking your flight back; you never know there could be a part of the souk you’ve missed in the city or a spa treatment you haven’t yet tried!
This morning you will be transferred directly to Muscat airport for your return flight to London in the afternoon, arriving into London in the evening.
