Beat the heat and pamper yourself in mountain-top luxury
As summer approaches and temperatures begin to rise in the Middle East, it can be tempting to flee far and wide to seek cooler climes. What may come as a surprise is that cooler temperatures are closer than you think. Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort offers a refreshing staycation this summer thanks to its mountain location which remains 15 to 20 degrees cooler than the rest of the GCC, making it the perfect place to #BeatTheHeat.
Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar’s magnificent location, perched 2,000 metres above sea level on Oman’s famed ‘Green Mountain’ provides a welcome escape from the sweltering temperature with endless fresh mountain air, cooling canyon edge pools and thrilling mountain adventures for those who want to continue to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle throughout the summer months.
