Set in 21 acres of tranquil gardens interspersed with serene water features, beside a private sandy beach and the fascinating city of Muscat, The Chedi invites its guests into the ultimate world of luxury. This elegant hotel flaunts excellent interior design, focusing on Asian-inspired minimalism with Omani accents thrown in. Each of the 158 spacious rooms and suites boast panoramic views of the gardens, the Gulf of Oman beyond and the Hajar Mountains, waiting to be admired from private terraces or balconies. Spacious bathrooms are fitted with terrazzo sunken bathtubs and rain showers, and every room is designed with a clean and distinctive style in mind, alongside contemporary furniture of the highest quality. Deluxe club rooms, club terrace rooms and club suites also allow VIP access to the club lounge with cocktails and canapés to enjoy at your own delight.
Food is to be indulged in abundance at The Muscat, with a choice of six restaurants and two lounges preparing a fine range of international cuisine. Select from the outstanding wine list and listen to live piano entertainment in the extravagant dining room as you watch the first-class chefs in action in the open-show kitchens. For a relaxed setting that doesn’t compromise on quality or breadth of cuisine, sample the creative seafood or tapas menus at the Beach Restaurant and Chedi Pool Cabana, dining on expansive outdoor patios while looking out to sea.
Situated in Muscat, this is the perfect base from which to explore Oman. Spend your days mountain biking or trekking with an experienced guide and immersing yourself in the local culture with a private city tour to see the enrapturing Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, which can accommodate 20,000 worshippers at one time, and the Royal Opera House Muscat, which is a must-see for those interested in the musical arts. After an exciting day exploring the local area, return to the hotel to unwind and relax. Choose from Muscat’s largest health centre and spa (with a focus on aromatherapy, Ayurveda and herbalism), an extensive gym, two floodlit tennis courts and the region’s longest swimming pool with an infinity edge overlooking the Gulf of Oman. At the end of your stay, you certainly won’t want to leave.
