Salalah Gardens Hotel serves up mouthwatering flavors from the Mediterranean to the Middle East at its five restaurants. Try regional specialties at Annabi, fresh seafood at Yamal, or international favorites at Flavors. Relax over coffee at The Lounge Café or sip tropical mocktails by the pool at The Leisure Deck Restaurant and Bar.
Flavors Restaurant – True to its name, Flavors Restaurant serves international dishes from morning to night. Start your day with a buffet breakfast, and come lunch or dinner, choose from the Mediterranean-inspired à la carte menu.
Yamal Restaurant – With ocean tones, cool lighting, and an outdoor terrace, Yamal Restaurant is the place to go for a sophisticated seafood dinner. Feast on delectable international dishes and the freshest local catches, including just-shucked oysters and grilled lobster.
Annabi Restaurant – Beautifully decorated with lanterns and latticework, Annabi Restaurant specializes in Lebanese and regional cuisine. Let the staff guide you through the must-order mezze and mains — a true favorite is lahme ras asfour, a savory mix of meat, garlic, tomatoes, and coriander.
The Leisure Deck Restaurant and Bar – As the sun sets, this poolside lounge delivers well-made mocktails and fragrant shisha, accompanied by fun music and a gorgeous sky. If you are hungry, be sure to try an order of mezze or one of their pizzas or salads.
The Lounge Café – Stop by this contemporary café in the lobby for a quick coffee or linger over a light lunch or afternoon tea. Try an Arabic coffee, flavored with cardamom and served with sweet dates, or opt for a richer Turkish brew.
Make the most of Salalah’s subtropical climate with a dip in the outdoor pool or simply sunbathe with a good book on the terrace, before hitting the treadmill at the gym or taking some time in the sauna or steam room. If you have toddlers in tow, watch them splash around the kids’ pool and burn off some energy in the play areas. Next door, the mall gives you the chance to browse more than 150 stores, catch a film at the 14-screen cinema, or grab a bite at one of the many restaurants.
Head to the impressive Museum of Frankincense Land and neighboring Al Baleed Archaeological Park to learn about the frankincense trade that flourished in the region for centuries. Then shop for incense and spices in Al Husn Souk before strolling down to the palm-fringed Corniche to join the promenading locals. If you want to venture out, a five-minute drive can take you to the Khareef Heritage Village, where you can watch traditional Bedouin dancing during the monsoon festival every summer.
