Nestled between the Al Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, The Chedi Muscat is a beachfront hideaway where discerning guests can escape and recharge in one of the most spectacular settings on the Arabian Peninsula.
The 158 well-appointed rooms and villas are spread across the beautiful resort, where elegant whitewashed walls, polished marble and dark wooden panels pay tribute to traditional Omani architectural design, and 21 acres of manicured gardens provide space to breathe and wander. But it’s the iconic Long Pool that pulls focus, a stunning 103-metre expanse that draws the eye out to the beach and the Gulf beyond, setting the scene for a journey of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Overlooking the Long Pool is The Spa at The Chedi Muscat, an 800-sqm Bali-inspired haven, where holistic therapies restore vitality and balance to body and mind in 13 elegant suites. Inspired by eastern philosophy, treatments draw on the principles of aromatherapy, Ayurveda and herbalism, with bespoke rituals that uplift and soothe the body, rejuvenate the skin or provide finishing touches like deluxe facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures. A romantic bathing ritual in the spa’s deluxe double suites offers couples the chance to reconnect and unwind, and one specialised suite on the ground floor is designed especially for limited mobility guests seeking rehabilitation and healing treatments.
In addition to the spa, a 700-sqm Health Club means there’s no excuse for guests to abandon their regular gym routine, with a programme of group classes and a suite of VisioWeb equipment from Technogym, free weights, a Kinesis wall and Power Plates. Pilates and yoga classes are held in a private garden overlooking the Gulf of Oman three times a week, but private guided sessions are available on request, as is the instruction of a professional tennis coach on two floodlit tennis courts.
Mindful of the fact that so many travellers are looking for immersive wellness experiences, The Chedi Muscat has introduced a range of six-, four- and two-day wellness escapes including accommodation in a Chedi Club Suite and a selection of daily spa therapies, fitness activities and healthy dining. Bespoke programmes are created following a consultation with the spa director and executive chef, depending on guests’ needs and health goals. For a truly relaxing escape that puts wellness and wellbeing at the forefront of everything, a stay at The Chedi Muscat is an unrivalled experience that embodies the warm hospitality of Omani culture.
