Millennium Resort Mussanah Gives a Whole New Twist to your Diving Experience

Discover the underwater world at The Dimaniyat Islands in Oman

Millennium Resort Mussanah, developed by Omran, the leading tourism-related investment‚ development and Management Company in Oman, introduces its Dive & Stay package, allowing professional and less experienced divers discover and explore the beautiful underwater world at The Dimaniyat Islands.

Millennium Resort Mussanah is the ideal weekend escape for dive and water sport activities, relaxation and recreation in Oman, and only 4 hours driving time from Dubai or Abu Dhabi, or 45 minutes from Muscat International Airport.  The dive package will take divers to a group of islands about 18km offshore to the North of Muscat where some of Oman’s best developed coral reefs, nesting sea turtles, schooling fish, moray eels and tropical reef fish can be seen. Eagle and mobula rays can be expected during this month and if you are lucky, you might get a glimpse of the leopard shark.

The Dimaniyat Island is Oman’s only fully protected marine reserve and the stunning marine and island environment are still in near-pristine condition. There are a total of 17 dive sites in the three island groups, ranging from around 5m to 30m, making it an ideal spot for the less experienced divers.

The Dive & Stay package is inclusive of breakfast for single and double occupancy, with free late check out and an upgrade to a room with a sea view. The boat departs daily at 8:30am and returns at 2:30pm. The snorkeling and diving trips are offered by SEAOMAN Dive Centre which is run by a team of highly experienced dive professionals and certified by the internationally recognised Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). The Dive Center is located on the site where guests can make direct booking.

Dermot Birchall, General Manager at Millennium Resort Mussanah said: “Diving enthusiasts never tire of the beautiful Dimaniyat Islands, a short one hour boat trip from the Millennium Resort Mussanah. These islands let you discover a spectacular underwater paradise teeming with marine life. You will find marine life that you have never witnessed before and it is always different every time you dive. You will see new creatures and discover new spots. Diving is also a great way to relax because once you descend into the water you hear nothing but your own breathing and you completely forget about what’s happening on land.”

Millennium Resort Mussanah, surrounded by the magnificent views of the Hajar mountains and an oasis of calm Gulf of Oman, is a perfect spot for travelers of all ages  to experience a diverse range of pursuits, including leisure activities, sailing and diving trips, business meetings and events, rejuvenation, and stress-free family-friendly activities.

There are a million reasons to go diving and one of them is to see all the ocean dwellers in their natural habitat and let them inspect and accept you in their world.
