Rising out of United Arab Emirates’ desert there are some barren, rocky hills near Oman in which Jebel Hafeet Resort blends into harmoniously. clusters of rooms and individual villas are either placed strategically into the steep terrain or bridging over its valleys. The resort maximizes privacy for its guests while enhancing the experience of the natural environment. An intricate weave of hiking trails intermixed with pocket oasis, along with the resort itself, results in an almost “non-architectural” landscape solution. The lines of where the mountains meet the hotel are completely blurred – encouraging a journey of quiet discover within this unique landscape.
