Southern Oman welcomes a new pool villa resort.
Situated between a beach and a freshwater lagoon, bordering the historic Al Baleed UNESCO archaeological site, the resort introduces a new level of luxury and refinement to the region.
Located 15 km from Salalah International Airport, Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara is close to local attractions such as wadis dotted with frankincense trees, coconut-fringed beaches, archaeological sites dating back to the Queen of Sheba and tropical greenery that springs up during the summer monsoon season.
The resort comprises 136 guest rooms and villas offering views of the ocean, lagoon or gardens. The 40 premier and deluxe rooms offer luxurious handcrafted furnishings and rich textures, whilst the eight one-bedroom villas and 88 one- and two-bedroom pool villas have personalised villa host services and separate living areas. The pool villas have private temperature-controlled swimming pools, the first of their kind in Salalah.
There are three restaurants offering local and international cuisine on-site.
Rooted in Thai philosophy with influences from Arabia, the Anantara Spa takes guests on a holistic journey, offering the only hammam in Salalah, alongside treatments using indigenous ingredients such as pomegranate, coconut and frankincense.
Guests also have access to a fitness centre, water sports centre, tennis court, beach volleyball court and infinity pool. A separate kids and teens club offers fun-filled activities, whilst the Safar Boardroom and Al Hosn Ballroom host business meetings, conferences and intimate weddings for up to 120 guests.
