Awe-inspiring rugged beauty on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman, indigenous village accommodations and a dramatic mountain-range backdrop should make you want to "get with your friends." No? How about Shua Shack bedouin dining on the beach plush settees and a lavish selection of local mezzes, salads and shua-roasted lamb? Hello, heaven.
