SAMA HEIGHTS RESORT, formerly known as Jebel Shams Heights Resort – the only true eco resort in Oman – lies at the foot of Jebel Shams Peak, overlooking the raw and natural beauty of Jebel Misht, Wadi Ghul and the famous Wadi Nakhr, also known as the Grand Canyon of Arabia. Situated close to Jebel Al Akhdar, Sama Heights Resort, Jebel Shams lies at an altitude of 2100m, meaning we have cooler temperatures all year round. Travellers looking to come and experience the unrivalled natural beauty of Oman and escape the heat should look no further than a stay at Sama Heights Resort.
