There’s no better time to visit Oman than February. With temperatures reaching the mid to high 20s, it’s quiet enough but more importantly warm enough to enjoy desolate beaches and non-touristy excursions.
Compared to its flashier neighbours (here’s looking at you Dubai and Abu Dhabi) Oman is the perfect calming antidote.
The country’s capital city, Muscat, which is famous for its souks and delicious seafood, is the perfect place to escape to during the long winter months, and the beautiful Kempinski Hotel—which is nestled on the Gulf of Oman—is the property you’ll want to check in to.
Located on the beachfront, with 6km of pristine beach right on your doorstep, it’s the perfect base for long walks along the beach and 360-degree sunrises and sunsets pouring over the Gulf.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the hotel will be also be offering a package for the ‘Ultimate Romantic Escape’ which is perfect for honeymooners, or couples just looking for a quiet and more low-key escape. Forget the red roses and inedible chocolates and book a room here instead.
Rooms at Kempinski Muscat start from $120 USD per night
