First impressions of this hotel was the drive - which needs some attention.
Once inside the reception area was most impressive.
Staff very attentive, although I did feel the breakfast service numbers were a little on the low side - especially in the outside dining area. For a 5 star hotel i would have expected slightly more staff. Our room was ok, although not really perhaps as stunning as I would have expected, given the type of costs involved here.
I enjoyed the tranquility and space of the marvelous gardens and pools. This for me was the best part of the entire holiday. It never felt cramped or over crowded and allowed me to enjoy an amazing experience with my partner.
Would we return to the Chedi Muscat.... probably not. However we would recommend it as a hotel venue to others.
- 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
