(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Regional travellers can escape the overwhelming Arabian summer heat to the nearby verdant capital of Salalah located in Dhofar, for the Khareef season (summer monsoon) between July and September when temperatures never rise above 27C.
Known for its breathtaking scenery and pleasant climate during the Khareef, Salalah offers a lush green landscape shrouded in a cool white haze and is a welcome retreat for visitors from neighbouring countries. The recently opened five-star Salalah Rotana Resort, built around a network of waterways and just a short stroll from the sandy white shores of Salalah Beach, is the perfect place from which to explore the area and enjoy the Khareef season.
Fully integrated into the landscape, the resort is a green haven peppered with banana and coconut palms which appeals to holiday makers seeking to spend halcyon days by the kingfisher blue Indian Ocean. ''We look forward to welcoming guests to the Salalah Rotana Resort during our first Khareef season,'' said Claudio Melli, general manager of Salalah Rotana Resort. ''This is an ideal time to visit Salalah and discover the beauty of the region and its strong cultural heritage.''
The couple and family friendly Salalah Rotana Resort caters to every traveller's needs. Boasting 400 rooms and suites beautifully built around lagoons, water features and man made canals, the resort's Omani inspired architecture and warm hospitality are the perfect combination. With a plethora of dining options, two tennis courts, stunning swimming pools, state-of-the-art Bodylines Fitness Centre and blissful Zen the spa, the property offers leisure travellers a huge range of facilities whilst local hiking trails around the stunning Dhofar mountain range are ideal for more adventurous guests.
