Oasis Pool Bar offers a selection of snacks, fresh salads and refreshing beverages for the guests to enjoy by the pool.


Situated between the mountains and the sea, guests have plenty of opportunities to immerse themselves in the beauty of the destination.

Those interested in diving can enjoy the chance to experience some of the world’s most stunning and intact coral reefs, while those interested in fishing can try their hand at reeling in the catch of the day.

Guests can unwind by the outdoor swimming pool or can relax with a treatment at Spa Alila, which uses only natural products, and which also offers a range of yoga and meditation classes.

Stepping outside of the resort, guests can continue their immersion into nature in the greenery of the Wadi Darbat valleys or by visiting natural caves, waterfalls and Khor Rori, the largest nature reserve in the area. Historical and cultural discoveries can be made at Mirbat Castle, the old merchant houses or the Sumhuram Archeological Park.

Alila Hinu Bay, Oman, adds to Hyatt’s existing Alila brand portfolio of 15 properties, joining hotels and resorts in Indonesia, India, China, Camboda, Malaysia and the United States. It is 27th Hyatt-branded hotel in the Middle East.
