Insider's View

You would never believe this relaxing, contemporary, boutique hotel is in the city of Muscat.

We recommend taking a suite here in order to enjoy the outside space. It is also good to know that the windows in the rooms do not open and there are no balconies.

Cool off by swimming in the Middle East's longest pool stretching 103 metres!

Enjoy dining in the main restaurant with a choice of four different cuisines and a mouth watering selection of puddings.

Why not head out of the city and spend a night at one of the desert's tented camps

Guests staying in Club Suites receive a complimentary laundry service, very useful if combining as part of a longer itinerary. There is also a complimentary mini bar and drinks and snacks available throughout the day in the Club Lounge.

The Arabian Court is a really pretty, laid back environment where you can enjoy local dishes and grilled items cooked to order

The beach is fairly non-existent, but there are three gorgeous swimming pools to choose from which more than compensates for this

Deluxe Club Room


The Chedi Muscat is not exactly a child friendly hotel, as it does not have interconnecting rooms or any twin beds. Children under the age of 16 are also only able to use one pool, and there are no facilities like a play area or kids club. However, the hotel does offer a babysitting service if required, but only for older children.


Facilities include the Balinese spa, three swimming pools, including the 103-metre Long Pool, 400-square metre health club, tennis courts, library and The Boutique Shop. The six restaurants at The Chedi span the great cuisines and wines of the world, from the Mediterranean and the Middle East to Southeast Asia and India.


During your stay at The Chedi Muscat it is possible to organise tours to the dunes of Wahiba Sands, or up into the Hajar mountains. You can go offshore into the Gulf of Oman for dolphin watching, or go fishing or snorkelling to explore the colourful marine life. Mountain bikes and hiking are also popular activities. The concierge service at the hotel will help you to arrange activities of your choice and give you plenty of advice.

The Chedi just feels so stylish from the minute you walk in. It is by far the trendiest place in Muscat in terms of atmosphere. The gardens feel very zen and even the loungers and cabanas around the pools feel chic!

If possible, it is definitely worth upgrading to a Chedi Club Suite. The benefits are fantastic, with a complimentary mini bar, including full decanters of spirits, some tasty snacks, complimentary afternoon tea and evening cocktails and canapes, free laundry etc. It is also the only room type with any outside space, and when you're in such a pretty setting it's very nice to have instant access to the gardens.

The food is hands down the best in Muscat. I have had dinner there a number of times and have never been disappointed. Whilst the food at the Arabian Court perhaps doesn't have the same wow factor as The Restaurant, it is still delicious, and the setting is so lovely.

I was totally taken in by the Chedis looks, all geometric gardens and whitewashed modernist buildings connected by beautiful swimming pools and fountains. I stayed in a Chedi Club Suite, impressively large with low seating and very much an Asian style. It is all very cool, with copies of Vouge to read, Aqua di Palma products in the bathroom and the latest Ipod docks for your musical needs. I knew before I arrived at the resort that the beach was not the best and this is confirmed when you set foot on the grey, gritty strip that lies between one of the hotels beautiful pools and the wonderfully warm sea beyond. With the three hotel pools offering a unique ambiance the beach is not missed. The hotel also has the best dining options that I experienced in Oman with real choice and fantastic quality throughout. My favourite of the three pools was the Long Pool, twice the length of an Olympic pool and leading right down to the ocean it is boarded by day beds and lounge furniture by day and fire pits by night whilst cool caf del mar beats ooze gently form the speakers. Next to the pool is the huge spa with a never ending list of facilities and treatment rooms as well as one of the most impressive gyms Ive seen. Well done to The Chedi.

I really likes the Chedi. I tend to prefer heritage options, but this is a chic and understated resort which blends modern contemporary modern minimlism with a warm asian feel. The spa is superb and exactly what a good spa should be, and there is a strong focus on exciting modern cooking, with social dining areas and open kitchens which gives a dynamic feel to meal times. Whilst the stretch of beach at the rear of the hotel is not great, The Chedi is all about the stunning pool areas which are fantastic. An excellent option for a break if you are looking for a stylish hotel, and guaranteed sun without long the long haul.


Daniel Smith (Staff)

I was so pleasantly surprised how relaxing and peaceful this hotel was baring in mind it is in the city. It is located on the beach and, even though I could see buildings from the beach, there is no noise disturbance from the hustle and bustle of the city. The airport is just 20 minutes by road, I would consider this hotel as a perfect relaxing break but also can be combined with a trip around North Oman perfectly.

The Chedi Pool, which does not allow children, has recently been rated very highly in the Middle East, it has to be one of my favourites in the world.
