The Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort is located in the heart of Jabal Akhdar, more than 2,000 meters up and isolated in Al Hajar Mountains range in Oman, about 150 km from Muscat. The resort sits on a cliff-top and overlooks a dramatic gorge surrounded by spectacular views of the expansive Omani landscape. Designed by UK-based outfit Atkins, the resort was constructed from local stones and wood, using traditional building techniques mixed with contemporary architecture. Other than the infinity pool that follows the curve of the plateau, the stone façades of the luxury resort blends seamlessly into the landscape.
