Fodor's Expert Review The Chedi Muscat

18th November St., N. Ghubra 32 Way, No. 3215, Muscat, Masqat, Oman Fodor's Choice

Though just a quick cab ride from the airport or the nightlife in Qurm, this luxe hotel—the most sophisticated of all the upscale properties in Muscat—may have a convenient location, but the beachfront compound feels like a remote oasis. The design combines traditional Omani architecture with a contemporary Asian feel: rooms have white walls, dark-wood flooring, and touches of deep red or umber; rooms have huge windows overlooking the spectacularly manicured grounds, which are dotted bubbling fountains and ponds. The spacious bathrooms have rain showers, deep sunken tubs, and a selection of luxury grooming products. Thoughtful touches include complimentary drinks, with deluxe rooms offering free water, wine, and beer (suites have a full complimentary bar), and an excellent daily breakfast, which can be taken in the restaurant or in your room. The spa is considered one of the best in Oman, and the entire property mimics its soothing vibe, from the winding, softly lit walking paths to the high-end fitness center with cutting-edge classes, to the infinity pools. The hotel's six restaurants, especially The Restaurant and The Beach Restaurant, are dining destinations for local as well as guests. The wine cellar is the largest in Oman, and cocktails and mocktails are outstanding, if expensive.
