Alila Jabal Akhdar launches Rose petal spa experience

This year guests at Alila Jabal Akhdar will be able to celebrate the rose harvest in Oman with a rose-inspired experience.

Every year, from the end of March until mid-May, the rugged, rocky mountain landscape of Jabal Akhdar - the Green Mountain in Arabic - is transformed into a spectacular shade of pink. 

Lying in prize position, overlooking the 7,000 Damask roses covering the mountain range, is Alila Jabal Akhdar, which sits 2,500 meters above sea-level and enjoys stunning views over the Al Hajar mountain range.

Throughout the rose season, guests can book a special two-night Rose Experience. 

It offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with a guided tour through the Jabal Akhdar rose terraces – a truly spectacular sight – and a soothing rose petal bath with a glass of chilled sparkling rose wine.

Last but by no means least is a specially designed Spa Alila rose treatment, which benefits from the medicinal properties of a naturally infused rose petal oil. 

Alila Jabal Akhdar is a design-forward hotel with 86 beautiful rooms and suites, seamlessly blending an eco-design of local stone with traditional Omani architecture and stunning surroundings. 

Vintage trunks decorate the rooms and the lobby is filled with abstract patterns of roses in a nod to the local perfume production. 

Spa Alila is filled with an aroma that is reminiscent of an old Oman, a mist of oils grounded in frankincense and juniper berry. 

There are seven treatment rooms, a Vichy shower room, Jacuzzis and an array of Asian-inspired treatments and excellent massages. 

On arrival guests are greeted with a refreshing rosewater and elderflower spritzer. 

The hotel also offers a wealth of other experiences including the brand new Via Ferrata experiences, a protected climbing route built to international standards.
