Caroline Garland grabs some peace and winter warmth in the Land of Frankincense.

Why go?Want some guaranteed winter sunshine? Then it’s best to head for the desert. And if you choose the Sultanate of Oman, you’ll also get spectacular mountains, storybook dunes, camel rides, hassle-free souks and top class hotels. The capital, Muscat, is just under eight hours’ flying time from London, but if you want to go somewhere that’s beautiful and relatively unknown, take a second flight southwest to the emerging resort of Salalah. Once home to the Queen of Sheba, and famous for its frankincense trees (now a World Heritage site), it has miles and miles of palm tree-lined Indian Ocean beaches. The landscape is as Arabic as you could imagine, with desert and mountains in one direction and untouched shores in the other. No holiday strip, no garish clubs, no raucous bars – just peaceful sands, a traditional lifestyle, interesting architecture and acres of space.

Arabian escape: unwind on the empty sands of Salalah

When:The weather in Oman is best from now until mid-April. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures dropping again from October. From July to September Salalah is kissed by the monsoon season, when the sea is too rough to swim. A fine mist covers the mountains, the desert turns green and visitors from the Gulf States flock in to enjoy the drizzle. This year Ramadan runs from 18 June for a month.

Stay at:The five-star Salalah Rotana Resort (rotana.com) is built like an Arab village with lagoons, canals and landscaped gardens. Set beside Salalah Beach, it has 400 grand rooms that come with a king-size bed and balcony or terrace as standard. Amenities include two pools, a Zen spa with a comprehensive treatment menu, a fitness centre, kids club and tennis courts. Double rooms cost from £119 with breakfast.
