Family Holidays in Oman

From November to April, Oman is a wonderful destination for a family holiday and our top recommendation for the best family resort hotel in Oman is the Al Waha, one of three luxury hotels within the mighty Shangri La resort.

The aptly named Cool Zone Kids’ Club offers supervised indoor and outdoor play areas for 4 to 8 year old children from 08.00 to 20.00 every day. Children under 4 years old are also welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

There’s also the ‘Adventure Zone’, a terrific family entertainment zone located in the Al Mazaar souk next door to the ‘Omani Heritage Village’.  It’s open daily from 09.00 to 22.00 and provides a good selection of play areas, such as: a climbing wall, soft play areas and daily Nintendo Wii Sports challenges.

Other children’s activities include treasure hunts, henna painting, the Sand City Competition and Arabian arts and crafts
