Key sites/activities in the area
Guests can discover a destination through its traditions, its cuisine, its environment, the roots of its people and their daily rituals. Because perfection is defined individually, Alila Hinu Bay has carefully combined its destination expertise with all the ingredients of a modern lifestyle to make every guest stay a ‘surprisingly different’ experience. Guest can discover the town of Mirbat and gaze upon Mirbat Castle along the old merchant houses. Or visit the Teeq Cave and Tawi Atair Sinkhole, the cave at Jabal Samhan, or mesmerise at the unique Wadi Darbat waterfalls.
Alila Hinu Bay is committed to making a lasting gift to the environment, evident in its unique CSR initiative campaign, “Leave only footprints, love and a frankincense tree behind”. This campaign encourages guests staying at the property to plant a frankincense tree in the vicinity of the hotel. This initiative contributes to the preservation of this sacred plant, which is under threat from factors such as habitat destruction, overgrazing and over-tapping for trade. The precious tree is considered a gift from God in the Dhofar region, symbolising life for the Dhofari people and a unique part of their culture.
