Bahla Fort

 

Bahla Fort lies in Wilayt Bahla in A’Dakhiliyah Governorate. Since 1987, its name has been included in the World Heritage Sites List. Bahla Fort includes: Bahla Oasis with its traditional souks, old alleys, ancient mosques, and its wall that extends over a distance of approximately 13 kilometres and whose construction dates back to the pre-Islamic era.

Originally, Bahla Fort was built in the third millennium BC. The length of its South façade is about 112 kilometres, while its eastern façade is about 114 metres.
It is evident that the Bahla Wall, which extends over a distance of 12 kilometres, with its terraces, apertures for opening fire and guardhouses, was designed for defence purposes.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

  • My wife had an emergency and we wanted to visit the hospital. I have to say I cannot thank the hotel staff & management for what they have done to me & my wife. They have been extremely helpful until my wife left the hospital. Thank you for what you have done to US.

  • The staff were brilliant. One of our party had to be rushed to hospital due to a medical emergency.The staff were amazing. They drove us there and stayed with us until we needed them, checking on us from time to time. Real personal service with a smile....going that extra mile for the guests. I would recommend this hotel anytime. The rooms were huge,spotless and beds lovely and comfortable. Perfect after a long day of walking in the mountains.

  • We were the first visitors to use rooms so superb. Kitchen good a bit sparse on equipment but enough for requirement's. Lulu hyper market just 5 minutes away for all needs. Ideal for central location to explore surrounding area Jebal Shams, Nizwa Centre. This accommodation was where bookings .com said it was, not like the hotel he night before. Manager Anu could not have been more help.
