Oman on the Fly
The majority of our Southern Oman fishing packages include comfortable and modern resort accommodations in the Hawana Salalah development, a new hotel and resort area that is spread along four miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters only 30 minutes from the main airport. Hawana Salalah offers great accommodations, food, pools, and a large main marina. The resort has a promenade around the marina with shops, restaurants, and a friendly and safe environment. At certain times of the year and depending on how far up and down the coast our outfitters are running, they may also use more traditional Omani guesthouses, which offer a unique experience when fishing in more remote areas.
The Sultanate of Oman is located on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, known for its political and economic stability, rich history, and remarkable nature. Salalah has developed a reputation for being a premium, year-round international tourism destination. From lush green wadis and beautiful white sand beaches to ancient forts and museums, it offers a look at Oman’s history and its future and is easily accessible from neighboring countries and many European cities. The area is very different from much of the rest of the Arabian peninsula in that it receives a significant amount of rainfall concentrated in the Monsoon season in July and August (known locally as the Khareef). The temperature drops, Wadis run high, the waterfalls of the mountains, and everything around Salalah turns green. This effect lasts throughout the year and gives the region a luxuriant feel as compared to the stark desert beauty of the rest of the peninsula.
Food and Beverages
Hawana Salalah offers guests a wide variety of dining options that include regional and local offerings as well as cuisines from around the world. Hotel guests have access to more than 17 specialty restaurants and cafes to dine in daily.
Typical Length of Stay
All Southern Oman trip packages are based on either three (3) fishing days or six (6) fishing day packages.
