I have just returned from a weekend at the Chedi and have to say it is a totally stunning hotel. The rooms are well laid out (if a little smaller than we had anticipated but they have everything you could possibly need) and the rain shower is fabulous after a long day in sun. Gardens and pool areas are outstanding; I particularly loved the Long Pool even though I couldn't sit in the sun there for very long - when it got too hot I simply moved to a shaded lounger on the beach!
Food at breakfast was delicous and plefntiful and there was plenty to choose from; cold buffet or hot food cooked to order. This, however, leads to my only complaint. The waiting staff were friendly and polite but service each morning was extremely slow; on my last morning I waited around 45 minutes for breakfast and had to remind one of the waiting staff that I had ordered food.
On the whole I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Chedi and would stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Occupying a prime beachfront location, this exclusive 21-acre 5 star beach resort is located 20 minutes north of old Muscat, the capital of The Sultanate of Oman, at Al Ghubra. The Chedi Muscat is ideally located for business and leisure travelers alike as the main tourist attractions, the financial centre and Muscat International Airport are only a 15 minutes drive away. The Chedi Muscat, a member of “The Leading Hotels of The World” and Oman’s first contemporary hotel, opened its doors in 2003. The resort offers understated elegance and a perfect mix of Omani architecture and a profound Asian Zen-style. The minimalist lines of the low-rise buildings are accentuated by gardens of symmetrical simplicity, with lines of manicured hedges and ordered pools of water, creating an implacable Zen calm. All 158 rooms have breathtaking views across the gardens and ponds, mountains and the Gulf of Oman. As well as a 370m private beach, The Chedi Muscat offers guests a choice of three pools: the adults-only infinity Chedi Pool, surrounded by cabanas and with a superb seafront location and the recently opened 103-metre outdoor pool The Long Pool, and the family friendly Serai Pool, with its black mosaics and elegant canopy plus 2 flood lit tennis courts. ... more less
