Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort, Nizwa, Oman

By Alex Martin

As one of the world’s loftiest resorts at 9,800 ft, Anantara has breathtaking views of vast, jagged canyons that are best enjoyed from the hotel’s protruding platform, Diana’s Point (named for Princess Diana). It’s incredible to see such a high level (literally) of luxury in such a remote, natural place, with in-villa infinity pools, three divine restaurants and excellent activities.

The hotel’s classic Omani design features sand-hued, domed archways with intricate Omani patterns, an open-air courtyard with a fire pit and surrounding comfy sofas, and blooming flower gardens with trickling streams. Be sure to visit the spa, also designed in an Omani style, for a treatment using the mountain’s damask roses.

Top suite: Three-bedroom Royal Mountain Villa, from $7,285 per night

Cliffhanger: Rock climbing and zip-lining in the canyon is unforgettable; the views are worth overcoming any height-related fears.
