The Chedi Hotel is soooo serene. We stayed for three nights and even though we were planning to spend lots of time exploring Muscat, when we arrived there it was so relaxing that we ended up spending most of our days by the pool, chilling out. Just perfect.
The rooms at the Chedi were very well appointed. We stayed in a Club Suite which was a great choice - lots of things included in the room (snacks, minibar, laundry service), access to the Club Lounge which was great (they had a great cheese selection, canapes etc). The suite was not huge but it was very tastefully decorated and well designed.
Absolutely loved the pools and the private beach. The landscaping is really beautiful, everywhere you look is picture perfect. Even though it was almost fully booked when we were there, the grounds are really spread out so it feels very serene, and private. Such a great way to spend a few days relaxing.
By the way, you MUST try the burgers at the restaurant by the pool. OH MY GOD. Amaaaazing!
The food in the restaurants was good but not spectacular. The Beach Restaurant is really stunning, right on the water and with pretty good selection, but nothing to write home about. The other main restaurant is at the same place as breakfast is served (although it is a la carte), but that is normally enough to ruin it for me - a bit of a boring hotel restaurant feel.
This definitely did not detract from how blissful the other elements of our stay were though.
I didn't get to try the spa at the Chedi (probably because the accommodation was so eyewateringly expensive that I couldn't justify the added expense!), so can't comment there.
I would definitely come back to the Chedi for another weekend of pure bliss and luxury, and would highly recommend it!
- 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
