A chic and contemporary oceanside retreat set on the edge of Oman’s capital.
It’s hard to believe that such a zen-like retreat lies just a short distance from the capital. Here, a predominantly minimalist style is wonderfully accented by traditional Omani and Asian twists, and we defy you to not feel your stresses melt away as you wander the hotel’s beautiful gardens, scattered with tranquil ponds and swaying palms. Elegant facilities include the breathtaking 103-metre Long Pool, Muscat’s largest spa and a private beach.
When it comes to choosing where to dine, it all depends on your mood and tastes. Enjoy beachside fine dining at The Beach Restaurant, renowned for its seafood dishes. For those who are looking for a more casual atmosphere, The Long Pool Cabana is the ideal spot for lunch and dinner. At the main eatery, The Restaurant, you can watch as western, Asian, Middle Eastern and Indian dishes are created in the four open kitchens. Alternatively, dine al fresco or in a private dining room.
The modern style continues into the rooms and suites that are set throughout the resort. The Serai Superior Rooms are located in the Serai Wing and afford a view over the Serai pool, out towards the city and the Hajar Mountains. Deluxe Rooms are found in the Chedi Wing and are more spacious. For access to the Club Lounge, choose a Deluxe Club Room and enjoy afternoon tea, snacks and evening cocktails and canapés. And in a Chedi Club Suite, you’ll get panoramic sea views from a private terrace or balcony and a separate living room, as well as access to the Club Lounge.
