Alila Hinu Bay – Salalah, Oman

Oman’s newly opened Alila Hinu Bay is inviting guests to reconnect with Mother Nature. Opening its doors in Oman in June, Alila Hinu Bay couldn’t have come at a better time. When eco-friendly travel is more in demand than ever before, the newcomer is a strong sustainability advocate. A haven of relaxation and reflection, it’s the ideal place to detach from the world’s stresses, and recharge instead.

Situated on a secluded beachfront in Dhofar, visitors are immersed into picture-perfect scenes of sapphire waters of the Arabian Sea, towering peaks of the Jebel Samhan mountain range, and vibrant flora that thrives in the surrounding creeks and wadis. As Alila Hinu Bay is dedicated to preserving the largely untouched regional ecology, guests can engage with the resort’s natural neighbours with a clear conscience.

The eco-journey continues inside each of the 112 rooms and villas. Modern and minimal, the interiors incorporate many materials from the region. With lagoon or sea views, nature-seekers can take advantage of their surroundings from their private terrace. If residing in one of the 16 pool villas, they can unwind in their personal plunge pool, or outdoor bathtub and enjoy direct access to the beautiful private beach. Design across the luxury property is likewise inspired by the Omani vernacular, as traditional culture can be seen in the archway corridors, while the marble facade and falaj water features pay homage to its local landscape and climate.

Yet sustainability is also about preserving and respecting the local culture, which is why Omani hospitality is fused into every element – not least in the restaurants. All dining options source local ingredients where possible, but each boast different specialties – Seasalt takes visitors on a coastal dining journey, while The Lobby Lounge introduces guests to authentic Arabian flavours.

From cultural exploration to outdoor adventure, days can be seized by embarking on bespoke experiences.

Three to tick off the list are the journeys Above the Clouds, to the Wadi Darbat, and to a Thousand Stars. The first invites view-seekers to discover one of the largest sinkholes in the world and enjoy panoramic scenes from Jabal Samhan. The second serves up mouthwatering cuisine specially selected by the hotel’s Executive Chef, under the stars. The final takes explorers on a hike and swim through the breathtaking wadis. While many of the experiences also include tailored treatments at Spa Alila, every guest is invited to indulge in bespoke treatments that are performed using natural products, from massages to facials. Yoga and meditation classes are also on offer.

Regardless of why, where from or when guests may arrive at Alila Hinu Bay, one thing’s for sure – they’ll leave feeling calm, content and connected to Mother Nature.
