At the start of this month we embarked on a week long road trip through Oman to discover some of the outdoor gems that the country has to offer. After crossing the UAE border and a lengthy drive through Muscat at night we reached our first stop, Sifah.
The first thing to say is that if you haven't been to Sifah before and are traveling at night expect a very interesting, narrow winding and steep road that can often at times be slightly daunting due to the lack of visibility and unknown terrain. You imagine whilst driving through it how beautiful the views must be during the day and so thats how we planned the return journey, with daylight visibility basically!
Eventually arriving at the seaside town the immeditae impression is how quiet it is compared to Muscat (just 50 miuntes away). Quiet in a way though that oozes charm from it's marina centric location. After checking in to Le Sifah Resort Apartments even at night you can see how beautiful the setting is, nestled perfectly between the amazing Hajar mountains and the gulf of Oman.
The Le Sifah Resort Apartments themselves have great sea views and are nicely decorated inside. One thing to mention is how large the living space is inside, you could almost have a full blown game of football in that thing! The balcony also hosts a table with chairs, situated perfectly for some sundowners in front of the marina view with Hajar mountains in the backdrop.
If you want to relax the pool area and the extremely chilled out Sifah beach (complete with inviting hammocks!) will make sure you're content throughout the day. If you're looking for activities there's an amazing 18-hole golf course on offer, a fully kitted out diving centre and also a tour company that can arrange full day coastal trips, dolphin watching as well as fishing trips. So needless to say there's more than enough to keep you entertained for a few days!
In a nutshell Sifah and the Le Sifah Resort Apartments are a great weekend getaway for you and the family, especially if you're looking for a relaxing place that also offers some outdoor activities to have some fun with.
