The Chedi Muscat
Description and Location
A combination of traditional Omani and Asian chic. Located on a private beach, 15 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes form Muscat town.
A total of 158 rooms and suites, although it seems much smaller and intimate. The Serai rooms are in the main building either with pool or mountain view, perfectly adequate but on the compact side and in our view more suited for the shorter stay or single occupancy. The deluxe and deluxe club rooms are scattered around the extensive tropical gardens in two-storey clusters facing the ornate waterpools.
The Chedi Suites have a similar location, but have additional living room and spa bath as well as shower . These are the only accommodation suitable for families, which in turn deliberately limits the number of children in resort at any one time. The suites are either free standing or in clusters of four with either ground floor with terrace or upstairs with balcony
The deluxe club rooms and Chedi Suites offer complimentary mini bar, laundry, airport transfers and club lounge access with daily morning coffee & high-tea and evening cocktails. ( The Serai rooms and Deluxe rooms offer in room water, soft drinks and beer )
Most of the accomodation has either mountain or garden facing aspect. Some also have sea facing views, albeit from a distance across the beautiful manicured gardens.
Facilities and Activities
Facilities include three main swimming pools – one at the beachfront for adults only ( see image 6 ) and the other close to the main building, ideal for families with shaded strips ( see image 1)
A new and highly impressive spa and gym opened in October 2011, together with further spectacular, adult only ” Long “ swimming pool ( making three in total ), with adjacent bar – just the place to enjoy a cocktail looking at the sunset ( See image 2 )
Several restaurant options in differing locations.
Two tennis courts, attractive boutique shop with some high quality” souvenirs ”
There are now a couple of golf courses just 15 minutes drive from the Chedi.
Chic Check – Beautifully designed, with some delightful small hidden corners amongst the gardens. The new ” Long ” swimming pool must be one of the most impressive in the region, wonderfully romantic and evocative. Plus the new spa is equally attractive, with treatments influnced by both Arabia and the Orient. The immediate beach has a mix of sand and pebbles with some ” ouch ” factor. As the hotel is conveniently close to the airport, you may notice some aircraft noise. The main focus tends to be happy couples, well behaved children are tolerated but several areas and facilites are designed for adults only.
7 nights from £1218
Oman Plus – Primarily due to the increased services of Oman Air, we are now able to offer more twin centre combinations. Dubai is just a one hour flight away, whilst there are now regular flights to the Maldives, Bangkok, and recently introduced Zanzibar where The Residence hotel of Mauritius fame have just opened a new resort.
