ABOUT TIME REVERSAL SPA (TRS)

TRS is a unique and tranquil luxury boutique Spa situated on the Saiq Plateau which is located 2,004 meters above sea level on Jabal Al Akhdar in the western Hajjar Mountains, overlooking a canyon that contains ancient villages and famous terraced farms/gardens. The Spa is designed and built in tribute to the charm of the mountain, linked with the modern life styles. Over 5000 sqm of native plants and 270 million years old marine fossils are located in the garden surrounding the 27 luxurious Spa rooms and suites.

The flora of Oman is uniquely rich with a high degree of endemism. About one fourth of flora of the country is found in Al Jabal Al Akhdar range above 1500m in the Olive-Juniper woodlands. Thus the mountains represents the Arabian peninsula by exhibiting the rare species of bio-diversity.

Al Jabal Al Akhdar (Green Mountain): Al Jabal Al Akhdar rises to a height of 2,980 meters and it is famous for its wide plateau close to the summit. The journey from Muscat to Al Jabal Al Akhdar in A’Dakhiliyah region takes about two hours and you can only travel by a four-wheel / quadra drive. Due to its high altitude and unique weather, the Green Mountain produces a variety of fruits, such as apricots, plums, figs, grapes, apples and pears, as well as almonds, walnuts and saffron. The pomegranate that grows here is classified among the finest of its kind in the world. Spread across the mountain are many Omani villages. Villagers have dug terraces in some parts of the mountain for growing crops.

Climate: Al Jabal Al Akhdar is known for its Mediterranean climate. Temperatures drop during winter to below zero Celsius, with snow falling at times, and rise in summer to 22 degrees Celsius.

The Spa Garden: Marine fossils are the essence of the Spa garden. TRS’s carefully planned garden has preserved whatever plants grow naturally, and added others species atypical of the area. The stonework in the garden has been beautifully cut by hand and the existing fossils are preserved.
