Some of our best parties have taken place on the secluded sandy beaches of Bander Khiran, an area of rocky inlets about an hour by boat from Muscat. One such occasion was a 50th birthday celebration that began at the Shangri-La marina in Muscat with all 40 guests getting into speed boats and charging across the bay. As the boats approached the shore our waiters waded into the water to help them disembark and offer cold refreshments.
Sunset came and went, the beach was illuminated by candles and oil lanterns as guests sipped pre-dinner drinks in ornate majlis tents. Dinner included a plethora of Arabian style dishes all freshly prepared by our best chefs whilst a traditional Omani drum band played in the background, winding up a little later for some dancing in the sand.
Other recent events we’ve co-ordinated include:
– A 70-tent campsite and dinner in the Hajar Mountains for a French
Oil Company, followed by a day spent swimming, sipping fresh juice served from our pop up juice bar and lounging on sand-moulded sofas on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
– When 260 employees of an Italian Bank came to visit Oman we organised a short adventure for them including a trip across the Selma Plateau and Western Hajar Mountains and a stay in an exclusive Hud Hud camp in the Wahiba Sands.
– We recently hosted a get together for a global association of young chief executives, delivered in association with a renowned mountain hotel. Our chef cooked up an Arabian inspired feast including delicacies such as ‘Crisp Rice with a Biriyani Foam’ and ‘Chi Panna Cotta with Baklava Crumb’. At breakfast time guests enjoyed the homemade pomegranate jam and fresh juice cocktails before enjoying various activities including hiking and abseiling and yoga.
