Opulent Oman and Zanzibar Vacation

Inspirational island getaway to Tanzania and Oman

An unforgettable vacation that combines the opportunity to see a little of Oman's rich history and culture with pristine beach time on the fabulous island of Zanzibar. Enjoy a balanced mix of discovery and relaxation at two 5-star resorts; a superb combination.

Begin by immersing yourself at the luxury Al Husn at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort in Muscat, the perfect base for exploring the old walled city, its atmospheric souks, the serene Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and its waterfront Corniche. Further afield, excursions can be taken to the sweeping sand dunes of Wahiba Sands, lush hidden oases, or majestic ancient forts. Then head off to the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar for a week of relaxation in an immaculate ocean environment. At the luxurious The Residence enjoy fine seafood meals on the beach, pampered spa treatments and a host of water sports.
