About This Listing
Welcome aboard! Try something new and unforgettable this holiday!
We invite you to enjoy Oman from onboard a luxury yacht, your floating base from which to enjoy the beautiful Omani coast with its fantastic fishing, snorkeling and beach-hopping.
Staying aboard a yacht permits enjoyment of the beautiful coast like nothing else. There's much to enjoy about the Omani coastline: fishing, whale and dolphin watching, snorkeling and pristine beaches some of which can only be accessed by boat.
There are 6 comfortable guest cabins each with its private bathroom, as well as a salon and lots of outdoor space.
Guests will have the yacht to themselves in addition to the presence of the crew of course.
Interaction with Guests
There is a crew of 3 onboard that will make sure you are well taken care of during your stay, from taking you cruising to the best spots, serving you meals and drinks and keeping the boat clean and tidy.
The charters are tailored to the guests' desires. It's like having your own yacht.
The price quoted is the starting price for day trips. Please inquire for overnight accommodation.
- Al Zahra is a dry boat. No alcohol is permitted onboard.
- No smoking or shoes inside.
- Have a great time!
We had a fantastic experience! The yacht was amazing, a lot to do on board for kids and adults alike. We enjoyed swimming to the beach from the raft the most, and we got somewhat lucky fishing in the one of the most beautiful coasts of Oman. Great trip, fabulous crew, and absolutely a 2 thumbs up!
You could not wish for a more considerate and welcoming host than Ali, who did everything possible to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable - down to providing us with his personal chef to cook sumptuous and excellent meals while on board. The crew were similarly fantastic - they could not do enough to make our stay a memorable one. The experience of being on this beautiful yacht was heavenly; the night fishing fun; and my family loved the tranquility of being anchored in stunning bays off the Omani coast. I highly recommend this experience to all.
This is absolutely a five star experience! Ali is extremely hospitable and accommodating. He ensured we had everything we needed--even booking a hotel for us after we got off the yacht.
Al Zahra is beautiful - spotless decks, ornate arabesque woodwork, comfortable and spacious cabins. The captain (Hamid) and first mate (Usama) are very capable and the cook--which Ali graciously brought on board for our stay--would be right at home in any 5-star restaurant. Every meal we had on the yacht was delicious!
The crew is kind and obliging--offering help or services, including laundry, before the need arises. They make sure that guests enjoy the fullest of comforts while onboard, and do so always with a warm, friendly and very welcoming disposition.
The yacht is moored at a beautiful marina located an hour from Muscat at the moment, and the drive there is quite scenic. We went on cruises each day and saw some amazing sunsets and sunrises out on the water. The yacht allowed us the leisure of doing virtually anything we wanted, from exploring secluded islands and beaches, to snorkeling, fishing, dolphin watching, and eating of course! It seems that traveling by boat is the best way to take full advantage of visiting Oman.
The Omani coastline is incredibly picturesque and Ali and the crew ensure that guests can do everything they like. In short, our trip to Oman was one of the best experiences of our lives, due in large part to staying on Al Zahra and Ali's wonderful hospitality. I would highly, highly recommend this experience!

About the Host, Ali
There are those who value form, and those who value function.
Those who look for both, together in conjunction.
Some seek falcon rare, some long for sparrow sweet.
Some truthful in their search, some falter in deceit.
Some seek the fair maiden, although her soul be mute,
Others know that magic, may linger in a flute.
I look for that which binds, all mentioned here above,
The thread of light that weaves, the quilt of endless love,
The breath of air which rattles, the petal in its rose,
And gives the dawn its light, and turns word into prose.
The secret of beginnings, that lead to final scenes,
Where good prevails beyond, its very modest means.
I seek not form or function, nor shallow is my quest.
I seek the only answer, to each and every test.
The gist of the story, told by the mermaid queen,
To the lonely sailor, the last time he was seen.
And what the bee did leave, the Lilly in return,
For telling honey's secret, when bee for sweetness yearn.
I seek what lovers see when, they gaze unto the moon,
What makes a timing perfect, and not too late or soon.
In Arabic plain and simple, I seek Beauty where,
She hides in tender meaning, or shines in pompous flair.
