Review: Alila Hinu Bay, Oman


Book A Stay

Alila Hinu Bay, Oman, sits on a seemingly endless bay and a private beach underneath the stunning blue skies of Oman’s southwest coast. This breath-taking beachfront resort in the scenic Dhofar region radiates sophistication and offers a wealth of indulgent lifestyle facilities.

If you decide to book a stay here, we’d recommend doing so through the Hyatt Privé program as Alila hotels are now bookable with Hyatt. Our luxury travel concierge will apply extra perks to your booking like free breakfast, a property credit, and more. You can also redeem World of Hyatt points at Alila Hinu Bay, which is currently a Category 5 World of Hyatt property.


This gorgeous beach property is located on the southwest coast of Oman. It’s around 90 kilometers from Salalah International Airport. If you plan to fly into Muscat, the hotel is around 1,000 kilometers away so this is not really an option.

This untouched area is best known for its lush landscapes and cool summers. Between Samhan mountain and the blue waters of the Arabian Sea, Alila Hinu Bay offers breath-taking scenery, and a true nature lover’s paradise full of stunning landscapes, waterfalls, and greenery.

You may want to combine a stay here with the Alila Jabal Akhdar, also in Oman. Alila Hinu Bay offers a glorious beach while Alila Jabal Akhdar offers a craggy mountain experience.
