The Sultanate of Oman is not yet a major destination for tourism; it has a wealth of cultural attractions just waiting to be discovered. There is something so enticing about this part of the world which draws you in, and stays with you long after you left.
- The Chedi Hotel Resort Muscat Oman
The majestic Al Hajar Mountains meet their luminous reflection in the serene waters of the Gulf of Oman. The Chedi Muscat rises amidst an elegantly landscaped twenty-one acre garden oasis with 158 Omani influenced guestrooms and villas. This sublime yet central location equally suits leisure and business travellers, while the six distinct restaurants, Balinese spa, three swimming pools including 103-metre Long Pool, 400-square metre health club plus two executive meeting rooms enhance Muscat’s considerable cultural attractions. One of the pools is kept child-free as a reminder of the resorts early days when children were forbidden.
As you walk into the hotel you are greeted with a cocktail and a cold towel while your bags are whisked off, it is almost seamless.
The accommodation is designed by renowned resort architect Jean-Michel Garthy, the Chedi has won numerous awards for its contemporary Omani building, and symmetry is everywhere.
Sparkling waters, vibrant gardens and dramatic mountains as seen through the grand windows in all 158 tasteful, well-appointed guestrooms and suites heighten the calming effect of the natural and timeless environment. Eight Deluxe Club Rooms and thirty-eight Chedi Club Suites confer access to The Club Lounge, while the Chedi Club Suites with their magnificent sea and land views add exclusive landscaped gardens.
The business center is replaced by a library with apple iMacs, and the gift shop would not look out of place in a Paddington or Toorak Street.
This is what hotel resorts should be like. The architecture is stunning, the rooms are beautiful, and the staff is well trained and enthusiastic.
The Chedi has won many international awards and consistently topped hotel polls, it is easy to see why, it’s faultless.
