Darren Darwin, General Manager, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort, comments, "We are absolutely delighted that we have been recognised by not one but two highly prestigious travel publications. It is a great achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team, the impressive product and the immersive luxury experience that guests can enjoy when they visit our resort. As the only Omani resort on the lists, we are proud to contribute towards putting the Sultanate on the map as a luxury destination and look forward to welcoming travellers from the US and across the world."
