Live An Authentic Omani Experience
Bait Al Safah a majestic story started 400 years ago after Falaj Al Hamra was slotted. Within the era of Sheikh Zahran bin Mohammed Al Abri, the house becomes a political and social center in the region. He accommodated the house and his sons after him. The house has an important history as Al Hamra’s leading headquarter, where a number of eminent personalities, scholars, judges, and governors grew up in this house.
In 2005, Shiekh Sulieman bin Said Al Abri continued the story of the house. When he realized that Oman’s visitors are looking for a closer and authentic look at locals lives. So, the idea of Bait Al Safah raised in Al Hamra to tell that story. It is not a museum that exhibits a dead antique, but it exceeds that by taking you to the past to live an authentic Omani experience in many of its details through local activities and crafts. Here, in Bait Al Safah you will get an authentic experience that enriches your senses as if you crossed the gate of time.
An extraordinary glimpse of traditional Omani life.
Made me want to explore Oman a lot more. Their customs, traditions, and how they lived before are really interesting!
Very interesting to see and the guardians of the house are very kind and give a nice insight in some Omani traditions.
