Reminiscent of an Arabian palace, this Moorish resort boasts extensive facilities to keep children busy. The Cool Zone Kids’ Club introduces younger guests to traditional Arabian crafts such as henna painting and paper weaving as well as teaching them traditional dances and how to write Arabic script. Outdoor adventures include treasure hunts, kite flying and sand city competitions on the three beaches. There is also an Adventure Zone with drop slides, soft play area and PlayStation 3 games along with GameZ where teenagers can make new friends playing air hockey and video games. Children will love having water fights at the Splashpad play area and meandering along the lazy river, inspired by the centuries-old falaj system that brought fresh water to remote Omani villages. Tots will be entranced by camel rides along the beach, whilst older children can experience their first scuba dive or join a yacht cruise. With 21 restaurants to choose from, small diners are especially well catered for, ensuring a relaxing end to each action-packed day.
