Alila Jabal Akhdar in Oman, at 2,000 meters above sea level overlooking the dramatic gorge and spectacular Al Hajar mountain range, has just introduced a new alfresco Spa Arbour, perched on the edge of the canyon, for some fabulously gravity defying Spa Alila indulgence.

Staying true to the Alila philosophy of creating bespoke and surprisingly different wellness experiences, the Spa Arbour blends dramatic Omani vistas with Spa Alila treatments, inspired by the local traditions and delivered from the heart.

Spa Alila has created three exceptional treatments available exclusively at the Spa Arbour, to be enjoyed singly or for a couple.

On the Edge

A 60 or 90-minute slow-stroke massage with deep pressure focus on the legs, lower back and shoulders. The masseuse will use a blend of virgin coconut, local frankincense and vanilla massage oils with a gentle Thai stretching technique, which will release any lingering tension for complete relaxation.

A 60-minute single massage is US$140 and a couple’s massage is US$260

A 90-minute single massage is US$180 and a couple’s massage is US$340

Heart of the Mountain

A 60 or 90-minute Balinese full body massage, delivered from the heart through an age old technique that has been passed down from generations of Balinese healers.

A 60-minute single massage is US130 and a couple’s massage is US$235

A 90-minute single massage is US$165 and a couple’s massage is US$310

Reach your Peak

This 60-minute revitalising treatment using enriched moisturising oils will leave guests feeling recharged and ready to go. The treatment combines an acupressure massage on the soles of the feet and hands with a therapeutic neck, shoulder and scalp massage.

A 60-minute single massage is US$115 and a couple’s massage is US$210

Guests looking to combine Spa Alila indulgence with adrenaline-pumping hikes, can now attempt the Via Ferrata, a brand new protected climbing route. The Via Ferrata Cave Affair Experience involves walking over a cave mouth, traversing along the side of the canyon and ascending into a steep gully. Those looking for a gentler trail can enjoy the 90-minute Adventure Trek experience.

Rates at Alila Jabal Akhdar start from US$ 493 per night for a Horizon View Suite on a half board basis excluding tax. For more information please visit:
