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 Chedi Muscat is conveniently located, close to the airport as well as to the most important sites that Muscat has to offer. This is probably the most stunning hotel I have ever stayed at. From an architectural and landscaping point of view, it is an absolute masterpiece. It reminds me of the Alhambra in Granada. It reflects the local culture, is extremely understated while being elegant and comfortable at the same time. The hotel offers and myriad of choices in terms of food and beverage. The breakfast buffet offers a very large selection and hot dishes are served à la carte. There are six different restaurants to choose from for your other meals. In the evening there are candles everywhere and the atmosphere in the entire resort is quiet and romantic. In terms of food, you can have anything from sushi to seafood to arabic mezze. The quality is superb. The hotel also offers 3 pools, a private beach and a fantastic spa. I had 2 treatments that were both top notch. However, what makes this hotel stand out even more is the friendly, helpful and efficient staff. They all go out of their way to make guests happy and feel at home. I can recommend booking a club room as it offers you a whole list of benefits from snacks and cocktails in the club lounge to free laundry, airport transfers and many more. If you are a discerning traveler looking for a unique experience, then book this hotel. It’s certainly the best in Muscat if not in the entire region. Kudos to General Manager Morton Johnston and his team for making the Chedi Muscat heaven on earth! I will definitely be back! Read less

Chose the Chedi on recommendation of some friends. Can’t speak highly enough of every single member of staff from the pool guys refilling water to the people in the restaurants and bars, not to mention ground staff keeping the whole hotel looking impeccable. Gym and pool facilities excellent, spa treatment divine (according to my wife) and every meal was top drawer. I will say that food and drink was a little expensive but for a 5* resort and more importantly 5* people, it’s worth it. Special mention to Naresh, Kishore, Sumbha, Davaylan and Jennie. Read less

Couldn't fault the staff - professional throughout the resort. Breakfast was sumptuous with a range of food covering all cultures. The main restaurant had a strong Indian influence with a lot of the chefs and staff coming from India. This cuisine was equally delicious and being super critical, I'd have liked to have had more Arabic food to choose from say Lebanese/Morrocan. The Spa was a great experience and both the Balinese Massage and Hot Stone Therapy were superbly executed by the Balinese masseurs. The grounds are immaculate - well done to the ground staff. Our villa was on the seafront - albeit set back with a restricted view. Fridge and drinks are plentiful (continuously stocked up on a daily basis) with complimentary nuts, apricots and fruit. We were unfortunate to have a burst hot water pipe in my wardrobe - which flooded the villa and saturated my clothes and shoes. The laundry team did well to wash, dry and press everything within 2 hours - this impressed me. The first person to arrive at the scene tried to turn on the lights - but we stopped him. You do not turn on electricity when there is so much water around - and this could have made the situation worse. However, we have passed these comments to the Assistant GM as a constructive criticism for the training of the maintenance team. He accepted these comments with the spirit in which it was intended. Our only negative, having stayed for 10 days - was the Club Lounge which is complimentary to guests in the villas. It was rather an odd atmosphere - feeling that you were sitting in a library with little room inside. The afternoon teas and canapés became boring as there was not much choice and little change on options on a day to day basis. Thus, we stopped going for afternoon tea and had a drink in our villa in the evenings instead. All said and done, the staff made the holiday as did the chefs delivering first class food. The location on the beach is good and there is ample choice of pools. We were unlucky with the weather experiencing 3 days of torrential rain and this is the desert!! No fault is attributed to The Chedi - something that was out of their control. Read less

A beautiful resort which makes you feel zen from the moment you arrive in the huge tented lobby to the time you depart. The grounds are huge and beautifully manicured, with water features throughout. The grounds stretch down to the beach, which is not that great, but it doesn’t matter because there are three good sized swimming pools within the hotel. Our room was lovely. Lovely classical design with a high ceiling, dark wood, two sinks and a great shower. The generous number of soft drinks in the mini bar, together with beer, were complimentary. There was a good selection of tv channels and current movies on the TV and an exceptionally comfortable bed. There are a range of restaurants offering cuisine from around the world available. We opted for the beach restaurant - which offered sea food just 10 meters from the sea. The food and service were faultless. There was also a bar area offering shisha in the evening. The breakfast buffet was great - everything you need to start the day. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating available. Many thanks to the staff and particular mentions to Brian for looking after us as we lounged by the pool, Fouad, who looked after us at breakfast, and Channuka, who served us at the bar and was charming. A stunning resort in a stunning city. We could happily have spent a week here... Read less
