Introduction to Oman
Oman, on the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula, embraces modern Arabia while retaining deep-rooted connections to its Bedouin heritage. From the centuries-old tradition of frankincense trading to modern oil production, Omanis honor the past while embracing the future. A visit to Oman can take in everything from exploring the Old Town in the capital, Muscat, to desert excursions and scuba diving in coastal nature reserves. IHG’s family of Oman hotels ranges from a luxury stay with mountain views in Muscat to a resort hotel in Salalah with a private beach.
