Salalah and Empty Quarter, Oman

Alila Hinu Bay

Beachfront escape

A contemporary coastal retreat amid a desert landscape

Sitting on the southwest coast of Oman where brilliant white-sand beaches are lapped by the soft waves of the Arabian Sea, Alila Hinu Bay has an enviable position. Relax by the perfectly still pool or choose a lounger on the beach where nearby fishing boats bob in the crystalline waters. 

Alila’s architecture is striking: minimalist and modern but with Arabic influence, you’ll find perfectly-curved archways alongside crisp lines and clean, neutral colours which complement the desert landscape around you. Inside its 112 bedrooms, soft gowns and deep tubs add personal luxury, and outside are views of the rugged rocks or dreamy Arabian sea. 

Unique experiences abound at this hotel, with private desert dining and local explorations of ancient fishing villages, markets and the lofty heights of Jabal Samhan. For those seeking a little more serenity, head to the frankincense-filled halls of the spa, where treatments are tailored to your needs and local ingredients offer healing properties.
