Living and working in Sur
Sur is rapidly developing location, not far from the capital but still a piece of old Arabia at its best. Sur is one the oldest of the Omani cities and has played a prominent role in building maritime trade across the Gulf of Oman, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean, forming business and cultural links between the Arabian Peninsula, India, East Africa and South-East Asia. Sur is the last location in Arabia where the traditional dhows are still built; they can be seen at use at sea daily.
Sur lies on the coast of the Gulf of Oman, boasting some of the best private beaches and unspoiled scuba diving to be found in the world, and is not far from extensive areas of mountains and desert which offer considerable opportunities for outdoor pursuits. There are several ancient monuments including Bilad Sur Castle, As Sinaysilah Castle, Al ‘Ayjah Castle, Finar Ras Al Meel and Ras Al Hadd Castle. Sur also lies close to several spectacular and popular valleys, the most prominent of which are Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi, and the protected beaches at Ras Al Jinz where several species of turtle lay their eggs all year round.
In addition to the history of the area, there are rapidly developing modern amenities with new shopping facilities and malls, so your day-to-day needs are very easily met, with an excellent range of goods on sale. Sur is also famous for its food, and there are many excellent restaurants where local dishes and fresh seafood are served, together with a few more international locations for a taste of something more cosmopolitan. Other facilities include the OmanSail club with which the School has a strong connection, and the HAS Compound club which are staff may choose to join and enjoy the swimming pools, tennis courts, restaurants and bar, all of which is subsidised by OLNG.
By road, Sur is connected to Muscat, Nizwa and Salalah with Dubai and Abu Dhabi not too far over the UAE border, whilst East Africa, South Asia and the Mediterranean are a short flight away. Living and working in Oman offers a wide range of unique cultural experiences not easily found in other parts of the Middle East. Flexibility, cultural dexterity and a sense of adventure are a must, but the rewards are great.
