Need to escape ? Go hiding yourself in the Mountains of Oman.
Anantara newly opened in October 2016 and it is offering a luxurious experience in the middle of the Greens mountains (not so green actually).
You can get there by the very fresh road from Muscat, about 3h30 from the city by car.
The hotel has about 175 rooms which offers great views and amazing quietness.
The rooms are spacious and well decorated, zen atmosphere, being on the balcony seems like an soundproof place. It is so peaceful and away from everything that your mind can go free easily.
You will be surrounded by yellow, orange, red and grey rocks that form the mountains. Just a few birds and cats could “disturb” you.
The whole complex is a piece of art: pool with fountains, spa made of rocks, the buildings are basically melting in the environnement and the gardens are very well maintain.
It is a perfect place for meditation and yoga, and some courses are organized on the terrace dominating the mountains.
It is an expensive stay but definitely worth it, I had this feeling for the very first time, to be cut of the world.
