MUSCAT & THE DIMANIYAT ISLANDS
Nestled amid majestic mountains and the glistening waters of the Arabian Sea, Muscat, the vibrant capital of Oman, casts a captivating spell with its rich heritage, splendid architecture, and a captivating fusion of modernity and tradition. Muscat boasts excellent tarmac roads that are ideal for motorbiking and cycling, making it a superb starting point for exhilarating trail runs.
Begin your day early with a bike ride from Halban to Fanja, reuniting with your group at the market for a chai break as you meander through the bustling stalls. Next, resume your journey on two wheels and head to Birkat Al Mouz, where a private lunch awaits in a setting beside the Wadi. Transitioning from two wheels to four, you’ll drive (or take a helicopter) back to Muscat.
For a unique perspective, a private dhow experience provides an incredible way to behold the city. Glide along the rugged and untouched coastline of the Gulf of Oman, spotting dolphins, turtles, and whales along the way. Your destination: the Dimaniyat Islands, a pristine collection of nine uninhabited isles offering exceptional snorkelling and diving opportunities in the heart of the Middle East.
Conclude your Omani adventure in the world of symmetrical luxury at The Chedi Muscat. From its impeccable design and meticulously maintained gardens to its diverse high-quality dining choices and expansive spa, The Chedi stands as one of the most remarkable hotels in the Middle East. After a week filled with invigorating activities, indulge in muscle-soothing massages and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments at The Chedi’s spa, widely considered the finest in Oman.
