After years of isolation, Oman is coming out of its shell and is now a popular choice for an exotic luxury holiday or honeymoon. Dramatic scenery abounds ranging from camel-coloured mountains and golden dunes to crystal-clear 'wadis', lush green valleys and huge tracts of empty desert.

Head to the souks in the capital Muscat for a fascinating blend of old and new, and outside the city, allow yourself to be pampered at one of Oman's luxury beach hotels. For a slice of eastern adventure, try luxury camping on a desert safari.

HIGHLIGHTS OF OMAN

Sunrise on Wahiba Sands. Having camel-trekked and spent the night in tents, Bedouin style, wake up to the sun rising over the undulating dunes.

Wadi swimming. Surrounded by huge boulders, waterfalls, and luxuriant palm trees, Oman’s beautiful turquoise rock pools or ‘wadis’ are irresistible for taking a dip.

Jebel Shams Canyon. Oman’s equivalent of the Grand Canyon, this is a trekker’s paradise with dramatic views and a welcome breeze after the heat of Muscat.

Sailing to the Daymaniyat Islands. Take a sailing trip out to the largely unexplored archipelago which has a pristine coral reef, myriad marine life – including whale sharks at certain times of the year – and some of the best diving experiences in Oman.
