With year-round sunshine and a mix of old culture with modern vision, we love the Middle East for its utter contrast to back home. From the desert’s wild plains to Dubai’s 828-metre-high Burj Khalifa, the Middle East is a treasure trove of adventures and sights.
Explore the Arabian desert; visit 2,000 year old Petra and enjoy a spot of retail therapy in Abu Dhabi. No matter your definition of paradise, you’ll find it here. The Middle East glistens with opportunity, shines with sophistication and offers a whole new level to luxury. Ancient history meets ambitious progress, east meets west and heritage meets cosmopolitan culture in this fascinating, diverse part of the world.
Oman is a desert country with sunny, warm weather conditions year round. From May to August, coastal areas are very hot and humid, while the interior remains hot and dry. The summer months can see temperatures soar to over 40ºC.
Oman is hot with guaranteed sunshine all year round, but our favourite times to visit are in spring and autumn, avoiding the soaring temperatures of the summer months and the higher risk of rain in January and February.
