If you read the earlier blog about special occasions then the latter part of this one may seem a bit familiar but you cannot have too much of a wonderful location.
For inspirations for that special anniversary or honeymoon destination or just a very different destination, then consider the following. It is a mixture of the romance of the Omani desert and the sheer pleasure of a secluded and bespoke Indian Ocean Beach.
The start of your adventure has you flying down to Oman and being met by your driver once you have cleared customs. You will drive to The Chedi Muscat hotel overlooking the Gulf of Oman. Your stay here is for 3 nights to unwind and put you in the right frame of mind for the rest of your holiday. Muscat is well worth exploring and the hotel has 21 acres of landscaped gardens to help you relax. Your stay here is on a bed and breakfast basis and the two restaurant in the hotel complex offer a wide range of local, regional and international dishes.
On day 4 you will be met by your driver and guide for the next part of the adventure. You set off along the coast before turning inland along the Wadi Al Amerat and then across the Eastern Hajar Mountains, all on gravel roads. Then into the Wadi Tayeen. You will have the chance to visit ancient villages along the way and savour the stunning views and wild country. You will have 2 nights of luxury camping in the Wahiba Desert in your private camp and with your own chef.
Return to Muscat in good time to catch your flight to Dar es Salaam, in Tanzania. Catch the connecting flight to Pemba Island, where you will be met and driven to Fundu Lagoon. Your stay here for the next 6 nights in a hillside room (cooler when the breeze blows and with the best views) on a full board basis.
Also included are the in house wine, spirits, beers and soft drinks. On the activity side, your stay includes unguided mangrove canoe safaris, Dhow sunset cruise and all non motorised water based activities such as windsurfing.
All meals are included and the staff like to ring the changes when serving dinner. It could be by the pool, on the jetty or you could arrange for it to be a private meal at your bungalow.
All of this at a cost from £3,350 per person excluding flights.
This is a really different mix of holiday – adventure, luxury and totally different destinations.
