Alila Hinu Bay

Salalah, Oman


Nestled on a secluded beachfront in Oman’s southwest region of Dhofar, this is a tranquil retreat with serene suites and villas, farm-to-table cuisine, a spa and infinity pools.

Key Features

  • This beachfront resort is an ecological escape on a beautiful lagoon with an endless private beach
  • The striking architecture integrates with the landscape and local culture, with a strong environmental ethos
  • The Orchard and SeaSalt restaurants offer unique mindful dining experiences using fresh local produce to create Middle Eastern and International flavours


Alila Hinu Bay is set over 45 hectares of untouched beachfront opening onto the Arabian Sea, and it’s this dramatic location that’s the hotel’s standout feature. The sprawling property seamlessly blends in with the local culture and surrounding landscape, designed to frame the sea and lagoon views which emphasise the connection to nature.


The hotel radiates sophistication, and the architecture is a marriage of contemporary design and Arabic tradition. Inside there’s an indulgence of luscious lifestyle facilities whilst outside Alila Hinu Bay offers a glimpse into Dhofar’s scenic charm.

Situated along the natural contours of the resort, the guest rooms and villas frame sublime views of the desert, lagoon or the Arabian Sea. With just over 100 rooms and pool villas in total, they’re all thoughtfully designed to offer guests plenty of space and comfort.


There are two restaurants here: The Orchard which serves dishes inspired by the flavours of the Frankincense Route (think flavours drawn from the Arabian Peninsula and up through the Mediterranean), and SeaSalt which offers Asian-inspired fare prepared with the catch of the day from local waters.

Spa and Activities

Indulge in some relaxation at the spa. Found in its own building, you’ll be transported as your senses are enveloped by the fragrant scent of frankincense. This spice is the foundation of the therapies here, so indulge in customised massages using fresh, natural ingredients followed by a yoga or meditation class after your session.

Aside from the wellness classes, Alila Hinu Bay offers a variety of activities such as hiking, picnics and cooking classes to showcase the different sides of Dhofar.

Why we love it

Everything is big here, but it doesn’t feel out of place. This sprawling property is an exercise in understated luxury, with exceptionally friendly staff, amazing cuisine and a relaxing atmosphere. Offering the best of both worlds, the resort boasts incredible marine life as well as rich history and culture from the nearby coastal town of Mirbat.
