One of the best options to travel to Middle East is to visit the so-called Pearl of the Orient and enjoy the wonderful contrast of oriental tradition with modernity, luxury and comfort of the hotels and resorts in Oman. Located in the Arabian Sea, this unique destination is able to fall in love with its magnetism to anyone who is willing to discover a fascinating culture and to be carried away by a different tourist proposal and high value in every way. Visiting Oman means discovering an exciting and eventful past.
The sultanate of Oman is part of the so-called Happy Arabia, a geographical area of the Middle East known since ancient times for the search for the incense trees of Dhofar and the ruins of the ancient kingdom of Sheba. The breathtaking landscapes behind these legends remain a well-kept secret worth discovering from the comfort and exclusivity of the hotels and resorts in Oman.
Travelling to the sultanate allows us to dive into the magical universe of the stories of the Arabian Nights . Thus, the visitor has such wonderful options as exploring the fjords of Musandam , strolling through the historic streets of its capital, Muscat , camping at night to contemplate the stars in the desert, bathing in the middle of an oasis, visiting forts and fortresses or making an interesting route through the mountains. Oman is one of the most complete and safe destinations in the Middle East where hospitality is almost elevated to the rank of national sport; and that closeness is something that can be seen as soon as you set foot outside the Barceló hotels in Oman and walk through its charming streets.
The Omani country has not opted for the construction of large buildings and skyscrapers like some of its neighbouring countries and its architecture gives way to incredible mosques and traditional houses that look like something out of a fairy tale. Oman has established itself for decades as a safe, authentic and very well preserved destination .
As if the Omani attractions were not enough, its more than 1,700 kilometers of coastline, bathed by the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, have magnificent and secluded pristine beaches where you can see species such as dolphins and sea turtles. The practice of snorkeling and diving are highly recommended in these coasts surrounded by majestic cliffs.
But not only the beaches arouse the curiosity of visitors; the natural pools or wadis surrounded by palm trees and in the middle of the mountains, gives us an approximate idea of the natural and scenic grandeur of this country.
It is very easy to be seduced by the wonders of the Pearl of the Orient while enjoying the experience of staying in hotels and resorts in Oman, a perfect option for family or business trips that will guide visitors in the discovery of all the surprises that this spectacular country has in store.
