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.

Spend two nights here for our honeymoon. Serai room with sea view. Room quite simple and small and not even a bath. We expected more for this price level. Exterior is awesome and really impressive. Somehow that flow isn’t continued in the rooms. Service is fine as you expect, but not as personal as you would expect - especially if you just… Read more
Spend two nights here for our honeymoon. Serai room with sea view. Room quite simple and small and not even a bath. We expected more for this price level. Exterior is awesome and really impressive. Somehow that flow isn’t continued in the rooms. Service is fine as you expect, but not as personal as you would expect - especially if you just checked out from the Alila Jabal Akhdar two nights before. Prices for food and alcohol are sky high but as ecpected. We might be spoiled, but overall we wouldn’t pay the premium again for The Chedi vs other 5-star hotels in Muscat. Read less

Just love this place. The spectacular 100m pool stunningly flanked by flaming urns sets the back drop to this chic outdoor dining venue. Treat yourself to the exquisite selection of food choices ranging from sushi platters to charred satays, exotic salads and tasty noodles. It’s pricey but a truly special way to relax and enjoy the evening.

Oman is expensive but it does not mean that 650 Euro per night per room with view to the parking area is ok. At least this was our starting at this place.

Oman is expensive but it does not mean that 650 Euro per night per room with view to the parking area is ok. At least this was our starting at this place. The room itself is well maintained but looks a bit old and cold. We did not accept and at least the new room was better located. The AC was very loud, we hat to switch off during night, lasted in waking up because of high temperature in the middle of the night. We complained after the first night, but never received any feedback. The architecture is great, but that is it. The price is more than 5*, but quality and service is not. Towels are not gathered at the beach or pool area, food could have better quality (chicken is over cooked). It is easy to spend 250 Euro for dinner including wine (2 glasses, 2 person) and let‘s say, the food is not very special. We personally would not book this place again and we would rate this hotel as 4* hotel, not higher. Read less

Simply the best! Excellent quality from an excellent team. One of the best holidays we have experienced. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Oman .Nothing was too much trouble from any of the staff throughout our stay. Their service, friendliness and knowledge were impeccable.

A fabulous oasis of luxury and tranquility. Beautifully stylish rooms and landscaped gardens; the restaurants and food were of the highest quality and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Only minor niggle is the absence of shade or umbrellas at the long pool and there was a bit of a race to bag the best beds in the morning (it was UK half term so I guess a bit more crowded than usual). However the manager responded brilliantly to our concerns and sorted extra loungers immediately. The gym is extremely well equipped but can be busy at dusk. Read less
