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.

The chefs are very talented. However when you have stayed for 8 nights, it does become VERY pricy so ensure you have the ability to spend and enjoy there. It was lovely, quiet and relaxing... just what we needed. Thank you Chedi for our stay.. we just didn’t want to leave. Read less

We stayed in a club superior suite, which was located in a small house with bedroom, a separate living room, terrace, and a huge bathroom. The shower and bathtube are very spacy.

We stayed in a club superior suite, which was located in a small house with bedroom, a separate living room, terrace, and a huge bathroom. The shower and bathtube are very spacy. There are two huge adults only swimming pools and a state of art fitness centre. The whole hotel is very modern, luxurious and stylish, which you might not expect when you enter the lobby. The selection at the breakfast is OK, although we missed Asian style food. The beach is a dissapointment compared to other beach hotels on this level (e.g. Shangri-la Al Husn). Overall we can reccomend this hotel/best in Muscat. Read less

Understated, elegant beach resort that understands great service and attention to detail. Don’t miss the gift shop for more than just the lovely cotton bathrobes but every stylish interior design item from the hotel such as candle holders, salt and pepper dishes and fragrance diffusers.

Visited chedi hotel for a mothers day celebration. We came in a day pass that almost amounts to one nights stay. Long pool is superb and well maintained. However the pool attendant seems not informed of the said offer and immediately told us that pool use is for hotel guest only, quite irked, i told him to check it out, he came back with no apologies and said its fine. As a professional working in the health care industry, I believe in a better way of saying things. Im not sensitive type of person but this person clearly needs customer services training. I also wonder how information on things like this are not cascaded well to the employees, might be one point of improvement. Then our time came for the spa treatment, staff intan and their masseuse ushered us with genuine hospitality. I could say it was the best time we had in this hotel. Lastly we dined at their restaurant. Their food was spot on and was cooked as per standards. We had the risotto, tuna carpaccio that is heavenly good, salmon and linguine. However my perfect impression was replaced by sadness and remorse when they told us that they do not do parcel food. (I had iftar buffet and my wife could not finish 4-course meal) This has been quite the practice of posh restaurants that I believe is wrong and must be abolished as i find it extremely wasteful to throw an almost untouched portion of food. Furthermore, we as customers must have freedom to decide to whatever they want to do with the food since we are paying for it. Overall, we had a nice time, it could have been really awesome. Read less
