We have just returned from a wonderful week in the Chedi.
The hotel is simply stunning and the food in a league of its own in Oman. Set to become one of the hot destinations next year - with prices going up to match so get in now!
We found both the setting, ambiance and hotel service to be far superior to all the hotels in the jumeirah group in Dubai. It was also far better value for money.
The Spa is wonderful and not over-priced.
My only complaint to the manager was that of the lack of sun-beds. For a five star resort there are just not enough and this has led to the infamous sunbed booking at 7am. It is just not on that a hotel of this standard does not have enough sunbeds and tolerates this tacky practice of booking sunbeds with towels at dawn. I saw one young couple having to lie on the grass and if this had been me I would have been seriously annoyed.
Watch the additional 17.5% service + tax charge that is added on later however!
- 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
