Jabal Akhdar translates as ‘the green mountain’ in Arabic, a fitting name for a 5 star retreat nestled on a ridge overlooking a spectacular gorge in the Al Hajar Mountains. This exceptional Nizwa hotel is built to evoke the style of a stone fortress and is constructed using traditional Omani techniques seamlessly blended with contemporary architecture to create a minimalist but simultaneously warm and sophisticated haven. With its elegant lobby, swimming pool and beautifully appointed accommodation Jabal Akhdar will make you feel right at home, but also offers you plenty of opportunity for adventure, be it exploring caves, trekking, going on canyon walks or visiting the Friday Goat Market in Nizwa.
