The Middle East is a melting pot of experiences and here we ask travel experts, Red Savannah for a flavour of what the brand can offer its clients.

Oman’s inviting sand dunes and wadis are waiting to be explored, while camping in the desert offers up endless skies bursting with constellations. Enjoy Jordan’s juxtaposition and explore the ancient city of Petra before browsing the thriving the contemporary art scene in modern Amman. And the upcoming opening of Jumeirah Muscat Bay provides the perfect excuse to squeeze in a few nights on the coast. Set on the bay itself, this exciting new opening enjoys sea views from every room, as well as a wealth of wellness experiences.

An ideal destination for spring or autumn, trust Red Savannah’s Middle East travel specialists to tailor your holiday. Here’s just a flavour of what they can offer…

Classic Jordan

Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea


The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is one of the best hotels in Jordan. Relax on the hotel’s private beach or benefit from an indulgent Dead Sea mineral rich treatment at the five-star luxury spa. Meander through the extensive gardens and, as the sun sets, head to the Sumerian Terrace for pre-dinner drinks with a view.

Create family holidays to remember on an action-packed family adventure in Oman. On land, explore the dunes on camels or 4x4s, and mountain bike between ancient Omani forts. Take to the sea and snorkel in the quiet coves, or charter a boat to meet the resident pod of dolphins that live in Muscat Bay. Spring is lovely in Oman, with gentle temperatures and fragrant roses in bloom in the mountains; travel in October and you’ll likely catch the end of the green turtle hatching season.

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar


Perched 2,000 metres above sea level with soul-stirring views over the Hajar Mountains, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar is a place to truly immerse oneself in spectacular canyon scenery. Navigate the cliffs on the via ferrata, explore the mountain by bike, dine suspended above the canyon or simply contemplate the views from your private terrace.

Canvas Club Luxury Camping


A true oasis in the Omani desert, Canvas Club offers private luxury camping deep in the Wahiba Sands. Settle in for a wonderful night under the stars; enjoy a candlelit dinner in a traditional Majilis tent before retreating to a characterful bell tent, complete with comfortable bed, plush carpets, private bathroom and hot shower.
