Striking seaside vistas, natural wildlife and delectable dining concepts await guests at the tranquil Alila Hinu Bay

Perched alongside an infinite blue bay, and flanked by an unrivalled private beach, is Alila Hinu Bay; a boutique beachfront eco-resort in Mirbat. Hailed as one of Salalah’s hidden gems, Alila (which means “surprise” in Sanskrit), features refined décor elements including a glorious marble façade with influences of Omani vernacular architecture seen in the falaj water features and arched corridor.

Sited just 87km from Salalah International Airport, and accessible by road from Muscat, the remarkable Alila Hinu Bay invites guests to embark on a blissful journey in paradise. Whether you’re travelling solo, with your partner, or have your family in tow, the 112-key eco-resort offers five guest accommodation options, guaranteeing something for everyone.

Take your pick from stylish rooms with lagoon or sea views with terraces, interconnecting family rooms, or a classic or deluxe pool villa with private plunge pools and outdoor bathtubs. As you step into your home away from home, you will instantly feel zen, thanks to interiors that blend natural elements of the outdoors with clean, modern finishes. Revel in the Alila Hinu Bay’s ultimate expression of contemporary style with thoughtfully designed spaces and unparalleled quality in detail and comfort, built for artisanal living.
