The Chedi Muscat

Oman, Middle East

The hotel

The Chedi Muscat is modern and thoroughly luxurious, but it also retains details that define Oman’s culture. Situated on a spacious private estate on the beach, just a short drive from the capital. The Chedi’s approach is to take beautiful surroundings and make them even more breathtaking with the addition of landscaping and design. Enjoy beautiful views of the water gardens or the Hajar Mountain range from each of the 158 rooms and suites.

Highly recommended even if on the expensive side. Read less

The Chedi is relaxation. Top quality service, excellent food and good rooms. It has one of the best equipped gyms I have ever seen in a hotel, even though it is oddly laid out like a gentleman's club. The beach is pebbly and disappointing. Great for a get away from it all break.

Even a quick visit to the Chedi hotel is a very nice and pleasant experience. My suggestion is to get a drink or food on the swimming pool area, very close to the beach. Very relaxing mostly if in a not so hot season.

The Chedi is a superbly luxurious hotel on the western side of Muscat. It's a self-contained resort with several pools, bars and restaurants and it's very attractively laid out. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to an Executive Club suite which was very comfortable, with all mod cons and complimentary drinks, snacks and access to the Executive Lounge, which offers afternoon tea and early evening canapes and cocktails. The service at the Executive Lounge was very good, as it was for the whole hotel. We didn't eat in any of the restaurants so I can't comment on the food. And the hotel is not cheap, but it is of top quality; a great place to spoil yourself for a few days. Read less
