Muscat Spa and Nizwa

Muscat Spa and Nizwa

Rs.0 / per person
(0 Reviews)

Muscat, Oman’s port capital, sits on the Gulf of Oman surrounded by mountains and desert. With history dating back to antiquity, it mixes high-rises and upscale shopping malls with cliff top landmarks such as the 16th-century Portuguese forts, Al Jalali and Mirani, looming over Muscat Harbor. Its modern, marble-clad Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, with 50m dome and prodigious Persian carpet, can accommodate 20,000 people.

 

The Nizwa fort was built on a subterranean stream, which ensured it survived long sieges. In fact, many such underground streams criss-cross the mountains and deserts, surfacing ever so often to fill the valleys and canyons, popularly known as wadis. In such an unforgiving topography, the wadis, therefore, become centres of settlements and cultivation — fruits, dates, apricots, walnuts, to name a few, are grown and traded in these areas. One such wadi close to Nizwa is the Wadi Bani Awf, which has now become a popular place for picnics and swimming.

 

Bamboo Spa : Located in Madinat al Sultan Qaboos, the spa owes its name to the wide range of bamboo-based products used. “Bamboo spas are a new concept in the United States which cannot be found anywhere in the Middle East except at the Bamboo Spa” . One of the treatments available is the Bamboo Bliss massage, which is a full-body relaxation programme with use of bamboo sticks and oils.

 

Spa Treatments rangers from US $ 13.00 to US $ 185.00 per person
