Uitgelicht

Al Baleed Archaeological Park, two minutes' drive from Crowne Plaza Resort Salalah, contains the ruins of a flourishing medieval town famed for its trade in frankincense and Arabian horses. Wander the vast mosque and contemplate the once-bustling streets.

Wat is er nieuw

Frankincense, an aromatic resin used in perfumes and incense, is as fresh as it gets in Salalah, where the trees grow in abundance. Yet it has a famed heritage, as legend has it that Queen Sheba gave some of Salalah's finest as a gift to King Solomon.

Tips

Ask our concierge at the Crowne Plaza Resort Salalah about hotel activities or exploring the surrounding area. On site, there is everything from water sports like diving to golf, to beach volleyball. Or you can explore the parks, wadis and dramatic coastline nearby.

Absoluut doen

With over four km of sandy beach, fringed with frankincense trees and cliffs promising stunning sea vistas, Mughsail is a peaceful and haunting spot. The mystery is in the blowholes formed in the limestone rocks, where water jets spurt up to 30 metres high.

Ga niet naar huis zonder

Taking in the aromas of papaya and coconut at the Old Luban Souk, a busy market where you can haggle for frankincense and other spices. Just 10 minutes' drive from your Salalah hotel, the Gold Souk is the place for Omani handicrafts and jewelry.
