- Occupying a prime beachfront location, this exclusive 21-acre beach resort is located 20 minutes north of old Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman.
- A world of understated elegance and a perfect mix of Omani architecture and a profound Asian Zen-style.
- With eight restaurants to choose from, enjoy fantastic wines and cuisine from around the world, including Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Asian and Indian.
- Dolphin watch in the Gulf of Oman, head underwater for reef and wreck dives, or snorkel among the Gulf’s kaleidoscopic coral and marine life.
- At what’s considered the largest spa in Muscat, expert wellness professionals provide massages, facials, body treatments and an array of beauty services.
- The Chedi is a 20-minute drive from Muscat Airport, and 10 minutes from Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque – one of the few in the country open to tourists (the main prayer hall carpet took 600 women four years to weave).
- Amouage factory boutique offers a brief education in Oman’s famous fragrance house, but the 10-minute tours aren’t compelling enough to warrant 25 minutes on the motorway unless you’re passing.
- Around the same distance in the opposite direction is Muttrah, the old town, with its port, souk, corniche and restaurants – well worth the trip.
