Discover - Halal Friendly Hotels in Oman

While being greatly influenced by its neighbouring countries, Oman still has an identity of its own. The country takes pride in an ancient past, a well-developed trading infrastructure, and a highly-educated future. It is nothing less than a little gem in the Arabian Peninsula with its wobbly mountains, sandy beaches, and golden deserts.

The people are incredibly friendly as they belong to an embracing society that treats guests with humility and honour. Even if it’s your first halal travel in the Middle East, you can easily move around in the country as it lacks the chaos of Egypt, the instability of Iran, and the crowds of Dubai. This peaceful and humble country can be explored without any distress.
Thanks to its oil wealth, the economy of the country has progressed at a lightning speed. Since Sultan Qaboos took the throne in 1970, Oman has moved forward with the modern times while preserving its culture and roots. Unlike several other gulf nations, it doesn’t believe in giving up its originality to meet the tastes of the western world.
Because of this, Oman has a distinct appeal to it, especially for those Muslim travellers who want to experience the ancient Arab culture and traditions. The natural sights of the towering mountains and the soothing deserts along with experiencing luxury at its best at the most lavish resorts, you have more to look forward to in Oman than you think during your halal-friendly travel.

Muscat - With a population nudging towards the million mark, Muscat is the largest city in Oman that provides a snapshot of the past and present. A substantial part of the city remains modern; a straggle of low-rise suburbs sprawls along the coast for as long as 25 km. The engaging port of Muttrah and Old Muscat are lined with ancient Portuguese forts, vibrant mosques, and antique Arabic buildings (a lot of which have been converted to small-scale museums).

Turtle Watching - Have you ever witnessed baby turtles hatching out of their eggs and starting to walk to the big sea? In your next halal holidays, you should make it a point to visit Oman so that you can rejoice this unbelievably wonderful sight. In Oman, the turtle season lasts from April till August; approximately 20,000 turtles migrate here to lay about 50,000 to 60,000 eggs. You must not forget to visit Ras Al Jinz, which is considered to be one of the largest nesting sites on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
Desert Experiences - Just a four hours’ drive from Muscat lies the towering sand dunes of the Wahiba Sand desert and this is where the treat lies for an adventurer! It might not be suitable for the faint-hearted as your driver will take you through a thrilling experience. For a more ‘hands-on’ traveller, the best way to explore the desert in on a quad bike to enjoy dune bashing on a personal level. You should also go for calm camel rides and exciting sandboarding to unleash yourself to an eventful desert experience.
