Bold Cityscapes & Serene Desert Landscapes in Oman

Journey from vibrant Muscat city through the Arabian desert & back, with comprehensive sightseeing tours, an overnight stay in a Bedouin-inspired desert lodge & 2 leisurely days at beachfront Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa.

About Your Trip

Set on the Arabian Peninsula, Oman dates back 106,000 years, making it one of the planet’s oldest human-inhabited places. Visitors from around the world are captivated by its desert of reddish-orange sand, soaring mountains and long coastline of beaches. On this wonderful DreamTrip, you’ll get a real sense of Oman and its amazing culture and rich history.

Your adventure begins in Muscat, with a full day to marvel at the city's top attractions. You’ll visit a grand mosque, opera house, beach, museum and marketplace before taking a boat trip on a traditional dhow boat. If you desire, snorkel off the boat for impressive underwater views. Then, continue through the desert to Wadi Bani Khalid where you’ll have a picnic lunch by its picturesque pool surrounded by cliffs. Spend the night a Bedouin-like lodge at Wahiba Sands, and end your thrilling day watching the sky turn to shades of red and orange as the sun sinks below the horizon.

You’ll continue to Nizwa in the Ad Dakhilyah region to check out Nizwa Souk. This traditional market, set in the heart of the city, brims with vendors selling fresh produce, dates and souvenirs like pottery. Visit Nizwa Fort to see a great example of Omani architecture of fortification walls, canons and a very large, circular tower. End your excursion in Jabal Akhdar where you’ll hop on a 4x4 Jeep® and voyage through mountain landscapes.

The last 2 days of your getaway are blissfully schedule-free at the stunning Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, so you can do as much — or as little — as you wish! Luckily, your resort is the perfect place to hang with friends and family, offering something enjoyable to suit every taste. Find your perfect place on the beach, lounge with a cocktail by the pool, or get active at the tennis court. If you’d rather, why not pamper yourself with some soothing spa time (at your own expense)? You can also keep the little ones amused with games and activities at their very own kids’ club designed just for them.

What we love:
• Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque impresses in every way, especially with an enormous chandelier featuring more than 600,000 twinkling crystals and a long, colorful handwoven carpet — both hold former world records for their size.
• The Bedouin ethnocultural group is made up of nomadic people living in tent-camps in the Arabian desert.
• Oman food specialties include sweet halwa, fresh dates and qahwa, a light coffee flavored with cardamom.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!

Destination

Muscat, the capital city of Oman, lies on the Gulf of Oman surrounded by mountains. It features a mix of old and new, with architecture including a fortress dating to 16th century and a symbolic clock tower built in 1985. Its corniche on the water is perfect for strolling, especially at sunset.

Wahiba Sands, or Sharqiya Sands, is set in Oman Empty Quarter, named as such because of its miles of uninterrupted, untouched desert — 250,000 square miles (647,497 square kilometers) worth! Within this beautiful arid landscape are rolling red-orange dunes and Bedouin villages scattered throughout. Visitors seek out this incredible place for camping underneath the stars.
