We spent four nights here earlier this month for our Wedding Anniversary and we were in heaven for our whole stay. The property is stylish and looks as good at night lit by huge bowls of fire as it does during the day when the sun sparkles off the while buildings. Neat box tree hedges frame the elegant pools and lawns, and the two, slate-lined swimming pools are warm and inviting. The room is averagely decorated, but our rate included free mini-bar, access to a cocktail lounge with snacks, and free laundry - which after 2 weeks in India and Nepal we really valued!
The staff are superb - they know you by name from the first minute, and they go about their job unobtrusively. The main restaurant is attractive whenther you eat inside or out, and the menu is long and varied, and includes the finest seafood bisque I have had anywhere in the world - and I've tried a few! Breakfast is a cut above your usual hotel buffet, with yogurts served in individual hand-thrown pots, and a wide selection of juices, cold cuts, and hot food.
Our two tiny quibbles were that you could only read the Lounge library books in the lounge library, whe we would have loved to take them to read on a sun-lounger, and the news-junkies in us found the 20inch TV in the bedroom too small to be seen in bed... but hey, as I said, our quibbles are minor.
We slept very well, ate more than we should, saw dolphins, got great tans, and met some lovely people - staff and guests. A super place.
- 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
