If you are seeking a spa retreat away from home and at a remote and exotic locale that is over 2,000 metres above sea level, a good two hours drive on a 4 wheel drive automobile will transport you to the soul awakening Oman’s Al Hajar mountains with various crafted pampering spa treatments to indulge in Spa Alila at Jabal Akhdar.
Spa interior designs always intrigue us especially when it is thoughtfully designed to suit the mood and ambience of a peaceful and rejuvenating sanctuary. The first impression of the spa pretty much determines how luxurious a spa can be with the design elements and touches that reflect the brand’s image.
A warm and indulging atmosphere in every corner of the spa is easily found, blending the mood into natures color tone with gigantic wooden doors wide opening and welcoming guests to the spa foyer. Striking carpets with Omani traditional prints are well spread out and adorned with the dark wooden beam ceiling.
The waiting lounge is well separated into two spacious sections by the geometrical black steel racks where the spa home brand – Alila Living - spa products are on display, uplifted with a vast selection of pots contrasting the white walls and slick furniture.
From the dramatic wooden tree branch inside the spa hallway, mirrors, Omani lantern lighting fixtures, to the unpolished stone floors and walls leading you to multiple treatment rooms off a central courtyard deep within the spa complex that are beautifully flanked by red velvet curtains, these are all tastefully injected by giving each room the right measure of sophisticated charm, calm and peace yet glamorous and opulent without going overboard.
Featuring seven treatment and changing rooms, a guided tour is needed to explore this well designed laid-out spa. Along with a Vichy shower room and Jacuzzi, this peaceful sanctuary is dedicated to pamper you from head to toe.
Not to mention that there is also an exclusive “secret garden” for both male and female sections, a little court-yard with sun lounge for you to reflect by yourself before or after the spa treatment for a much desired calming effect.
The couple’s room that we were in did not disappoint, with the care and attention to detail. It is all about sense, feel and touch, and we were in expert hands and after some moments, you were not aware of anyone else in the room as you were transported to another world and feeling…silence is golden.
