Alila Hinu Bay is set over 45 hectares of untouched beachfront opening onto the Arabian Sea, and it’s this dramatic location that’s the hotel’s standout feature. The sprawling property seamlessly blends in with the local culture and surrounding landscape, designed to frame the sea and lagoon views which emphasise the connection to nature.
The hotel radiates sophistication, and the architecture is a marriage of contemporary design and Arabic tradition. Inside there’s an indulgence of luscious lifestyle facilities whilst outside Alila Hinu Bay offers a glimpse into Dhofar’s scenic charm.
Situated along the natural contours of the resort, the guest rooms and villas frame sublime views of the desert, lagoon or the Arabian Sea. With just over 100 rooms and pool villas in total, they’re all thoughtfully designed to offer guests plenty of space and comfort.
There are two restaurants here: The Orchard which serves dishes inspired by the flavours of the Frankincense Route (think flavours drawn from the Arabian Peninsula and up through the Mediterranean), and SeaSalt which offers Asian-inspired fare prepared with the catch of the day from local waters.
Indulge in some relaxation at the spa. Found in its own building, you’ll be transported as your senses are enveloped by the fragrant scent of frankincense. This spice is the foundation of the therapies here, so indulge in customised massages using fresh, natural ingredients followed by a yoga or meditation class after your session.
Aside from the wellness classes, Alila Hinu Bay offers a variety of activities such as hiking, picnics and cooking classes to showcase the different sides of Dhofar.
