Oman - Travel Information


  • Arabic Children
  • The harbor of Sur

There are some places in this world that just have to be experienced for yourself as no amount of words can truly define the exquisite beauty that unfolds before you… that place is Oman. It’s where the traditions of an ancient land and its people perfectly merge within these modern times.

Where the footsteps of prophets, kings and legends have left their mark on this majestic land and where you find serenity and reverence in the beauty of the mountains as they rise 3000 metres above sea.

Where a visit to ancient forts, castles and souks unearths hidden treasures from a bygone era and where the elegance and luxury of its hotels envelop visitors under a blanket of Arabian stars. Discover where Beauty Has an Address only an hour from Abu Dhabi or Dubai and create your own journey of a lifetime.

The Sultanate of Oman is touted as Old Arabia and the place where the traditions of Arabia have survived in their purest forms. Or else as a nation where beauty is defined by curved edges, bends and twists just like the letter “O”. Not surprising the expression “going round the bend” was termed in Oman on the remote post of TelegraphIsland by British soldiers during their Imperial reign.

Hence, considering this affinity for roundness, criss-crossing the diverse landscapes of the country, a floundering amount of Roundabouts have popped up over the recent years.

Gigantic roundabout decorations are present features found on the highways and byways of other countries in the Gulf; however, in Oman it is where this art form is elevated to its highest form. From the monumental mabkhara to colossal coffee urns – fantasy and history unite.
