For years I have seen pictures of this beautiful resort in magazines and books and in December I finally had the chance to visit, however it did not meet my expectations.
The design of the public areas and restaurants is indeed beautiful, but the rooms were a big dissapointment. I was put up in one of the small rooms in the back with a very dated and standard decoration. Due to an issue I asked to move rooms after the first night, however when I came back at night after a long day out nothing was done and nobody knew about my room move.
Dinner and breakfast were good but pricey. Service was in some areas very good and in some very poor. When you pay almost 600 usd a night you expect it to be better.
- 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
