Just returned from our second visit in 6 years and the place is as good as ever. We both planned to rest and relax which is exactly what we were able to do. We stayed in a deluxe room again which was very nice.
Wonderful, polite staff who could not do enough for us and were impressive in that they could always remember our names without hesitation. Grounds and overall condition of the hotel were both second to none. The restaurant is first class for both breakfast as well as dinner...it should be, as the cost of a good evening meal does not come cheap....an average of 80 Omani Rials for two including an aperitif and a single glass of fairly modest wine each. Nonetheless, we were on holiday and the restaurant experience at the end of the day was exactly what the doctor had ordered
Great facilities, especially the pools (stunning Long Pool) and the gym.
Be warned however. If you like a full service, all action hotel the Chedi is not for you. If you desire peace and quiet with an almost 'zen' like experience it most certainly is.
We will return most definitely within a couple of years.
- 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
