On this trip, you’ll get to soak up some of Salalah’s sprawling coastline. You’ll be driven, by an English-speaking guide, 15 minutes through the city to the Crowne Plaza Resort. Right away you’ll see why it’s one of the most popular in the area. You’ll be given towels on arrival as well as a free non-alcoholic drink. Lounge around the hotel’s three outdoor swimming pools and 42-acre tropical gardens. Or walk down to the privately-owned, white-sand beachfront for a dip in the Indian Ocean. Grab a bite to eat at the hotel’s Bird Lounge or pub, which has a panoramic view of the coast. After a couple of hours enjoying the sun, you’ll be driven back to Port Salalah.
