Marvelling at an enchanting desert sunset from the rolling dunes of the Wahiba Sands, before cooling off at a seriously lavish beach-side hotel or dolphin-spotting aboard a private dhow cruise are the most obvious reasons why Oman might feature on honeymooners’ shortlists.

Add in the lure of the blissful sunshine, which dependably beams down from October to April, and you’ll find that Oman is a serious contender for those looking to start their married life off in style.

How do you like to spend your honeymoon?

Stay at the Chedi Muscat

Winding down and relaxing should be an integral part of a classic honeymoon — one of the best places to do this is at the wonderful spa at the Chedi Hotel in Muscat. You’ll need to book ahead!

Take a dhow cruise

Taking a dhow cruise along the coast is a great way to see Oman’s fantastic coastline from the water. Also, if you’re lucky you might see some of the dolphins which abound in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. You can go on an all-day cruise, or just take a shorter evening cruise.

Watch the sun set over the Wahiba Sands

There can be few natural sights as utterly romantic as a desert sunset, witnessed from the isolated serenity of the crest of a towering sand-dune. Even though you are already married, you could easily find yourself popping the question again! The Wahiba Sands has several tented camps where you can base yourselves for a night or two.
