Look up ‘chic, minimalist retreat’ in the dictionary and chances are there will be a reference to The Chedi Muscat. Ok, perhaps not, but the genius behind this creation has undeniably created something truly special in amongst the rugged mountainscape that towers over the Omani Gulf. Devoted to providing guests with the space to escape into their own Arabian dream, The Chedi combines minimalism with traditional Omani decor and architectural contours with jaw-dropping effect. Black and white marble runs throughout and an Arabian Courtyard gives a home to shisha pipes and plush seating. Prepare to be wowed.
Sitting proudly on the shores of the azure Gulf of Oman with the Jhajjar Mountains providing the incredible backdrop, The Chedi Muscat is a slice of real Oman. A haven of peace and tranquillity, where the outside world ceases to exist but the airport lies just a fifteen minutes drive away.
Reserve any one of the hotel’s 158 rooms and you’re in for a real treat. The all-encompassing beauty of the Gulf of Oman and the Jhajjar Mountains are only made better by oversized windows, sky-high ceilings and minimalist décor. Here, the landscapes give as much to the hotel as the furnishings. Step inside and it’s plain to see that The Chedi has truly mastered the art of marrying luxury with minimalism as well as cultural tradition.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Take stunning surroundings, add in a dash of immaculate landscaping and architectural design with the highest level of service and The Chedi Muscat really is something quite spectacular. Sleek without being ostentatious and sat exclusively on the Boushar beach, this hideaway is certainly something special. Everything it does, it does with a careful balance between tradition and contemporary luxuries, right down to the hotel boutique. Omani arches lead the way into this hidden boutique where you’ll find locally-crafted jewellery, artworks, trinkets for the home and Oman’s famous Amouage fragrances.
