WHERE TO STAY

Salalah Rotana Re­sort

What's On (Dubai) - - ACTIVE -

Walk­ing un­der­neath the enor­mous arch­ways to­wards Salalah Rotana Re­sort’s lobby, perched at the edge of an enor­mous stretch of beach, is like walk­ing through a sul­tan’s palace, and a fan­tas­tic place to rest your head in Salalah. Just a scenic 20km drive from the air­port, the lux­u­ri­ous five-star prop­erty has 400 rooms and suites, beau­ti­fully built around la­goons, wa­ter fea­tures and man­made canals.

From the lobby to the high-ceilinged rooms, the two swim­ming pools to the Body­lines spa, the spa­ces of Salalah Rotana Re­sort are el­e­gantly styled, neatly avoid­ing the shabby pit­falls that some beach re­sorts seem to slip into.

There are sev­eral restau­rants to choose but head to The Beach Bar & Restau­rant for a ca­sual pizza by the pool, or Asian restau­rant Silk Road for the best sushi in Salalah.

Then, as you settle into your room (we sug­gest you opt for a pre­mium ocean view suite) en­joy­ing a won­der­ful panorama of the In­dian Ocean from your bal­cony, re­mind your­self that you are not, in fact, a sul­tan of any sort, and that a stay here is very spe­cial, not to men­tion ex­cep­tion­ally rea­son­able, too. There are spe­cial kha­reef deals avail­able un­til Septem­ber 30. Choose the dis­cov­ery es­cape pack­age, a two-night stay with break­fast and a full day tour. Prices start from Dhs1,277 per night. Rates are sub­ject to change.
