Hilton Salalah Oman Special Offer

The Hilton Salalah is a beachside hotel located with views of the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea and it is offering a discounted rate of only Omani Riyals 66 per night during April.

Salalah is a great place to have a short break. It is the only place in the Arabian Peninsula where the Indian monsoon rains bring their annual downpour. Coconut and papaya trees are everywhere and the lush green landscape is in sharp contrast with the scraggy, dusty Dhofar mountain range just a few miles away.

When in Salalah be sure to go on the Frankincense trail. From the bark of the trees that grow in the Dhofar hills a sap is extracted which hardens into pellets which are then heated over embers to give theFrankincense_tree_near_Salalah_Dhofar_Oman smoke that everyone around the world knows of. The Romans used it in ancient times. Frankincense is burnt at funerals across the world and in the Middle East it is a common ritual to burn it when one is expecting guests.

If the price is not a good enough incentive to visit the Hilton Salalah then the Frankincense tour will make it worth your while.
