Sleep in Wadi Bani Khalid

Wadi means “river” and there’s a surprising abundance of them in the Omani desert.

Walk into the canyon and you journey to lavish aquamarine pools, small waterfalls, and vast terraced plantations. The colour juxtapositions are staggering, with water hiding beneath the faded orange of a precipitous mountain.

Follow a walkway and the canyon narrows, revealing a stepped sequence of waterways, each more evocative than the last. And as day turns to night you will stay in the canyon, to enjoy Wadi Bani Khalid completely on your own.
