Staycation best option for all during the extended weekend in Oman

MUSCAT: Weekends in Oman are a blessing that should be taken advantage of after a long work week, but getting an extra day off makes it even better.
With Thursday, May 5 having been officially declared a holiday to celebrate Isra-wal-Meraj, many can take advantage of this weekend for a ‘staycation’ instead of an actual vacation.
The Sultanate has always been a breathtaking hub for adventure. Some of the population could utilise the extra day by making a trip to Jebel Akhdar and enjoying the cool weather at the top of the mountain range or explore the vast hidden treasures that Oman has to offer. “I travelled to Jebel Akhdar this holiday and camped for two nights. The weather is amazing during the day and night,” said an Omani local, who wished to remain anonymous.
“I encourage everyone to go out in nature, away from the city, and take in some fresh air. It will help you relax,” he added.
Hotels and resorts are considered very popular among hard working citizens as they look to enjoy a relaxing stay at some of the best hotels in Oman.
By announcing exclusive offers and a number of fun activities one can take part in, hotels and resorts offer a tempting and irresistible experience for the public.
Mustafa Al Jundi, director of Marketing and Sales at the Musannah Resort, said the resort experienced 100 per cent occupancy during this holiday, hosting over 650 guests.
“We have exclusive offers for both Omani nationals and residents. I do encourage people to stay with us whenever there is a long weekend instead of travelling,” said Al Jundi. People welcome holiday which give them a much-needed break to re-energise for another week of work.
