Perched 2,000 metres above sea level in the Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar is the perfect escape for adventure travellers, nature lovers and those seeking a retreat from the desert heat. Best of all, Alila Jabal Akhdar is giving away one night’s stay for two people, inclusive of breakfast and dinner.
