And they proved all of that by building some of the most amazing hotels one can find on our planet. My personal favourite is the Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara. The way it merges its environment with the overall design is something that I have not seen before and the service is simply superlative. Having miles and miles of untouched coastline, the UNESCO protected Wadi’s and some stunning mudbrick architecture and killer sunsets, Oman is a fantastic destination during the winter period.
And last but not least, Thailand. And while that might not be the first place one tends to think about during the winter I can assure you that our friends from the land of smiles have more than enough to offer. The weather is a real treat during the winter months and there’s plenty to see and do. From beach-bumming in Phuket or Koh Samui to the cultural richness on offer in Chiang Mai and Ayutthaya. The perfect mix for a winter escape!
