Things to Do

The hotel is an ideal stop over en route to the Turtle Sanctuary at Ras-al-Jinz, for turtle watching; one of the main Sur, Oman attractions. The Turtle Sanctuary is a paradise in its own right with cerulean waters and golden sand. It is one of the few remaining undisturbed Green Turtle nesting locations in the world and also features one of the largest nesting populations in the Indian Ocean. Many tourists from around the world come to witness these rare and amazing creatures hatching or laying eggs overnight. It is truly an unforgettable experience to watch the beach swarming with huge turtles.
