"Oman is all about dramatic landscapes, as you have high mountains, vast desert plains and serene coastline at the edge of the gulf."
Surrounded by the United Arab Emirates, this exclave of Oman in the Musandam Peninsula features dramatic landscape of craggy mountains at the edge of the gulf. Oman’s capital, Muscat, is a five-hour drive south, with a huge section of the UAE in between. While much of the Musandam Peninsula remains undeveloped, eco-luxury brand Six Senses built a nature-lover’s retreat here, just a two-hour drive from the Dubai International airport.
