The Chedi, Muscat

In the Omani capital, Tamsin Wressell unwinds in sophisticated Arabian style


I start my mornings at The Chedi by swimming in the longest pool in the Middle East, which spans 103 metres. The infinity pool takes me from the traditional whitewashed domed buildings that dot the manicured lawns of the resort to a private beach. I stroll along, watching resident crabs dig holes in the sand, before reaching my Chedi Suite, which comes with complimentary return airport transfers, access to The Club Lounge and a minibar and fruit basket that’s restocked daily. Breakfast is served at The Restaurant, one of the resort’s six restaurants, which dishes up Arabian and international dishes to the sound of live piano music in the evenings. The same menu is served at its poolside spot whilst Mediterranean-inspired seafood is served at The Beach Restaurant. As I’m visiting in low season, the other restaurants and a lounge is closed, but I never struggle to find dishes I like the sound of. If I want to, I can work off my daily indulgences at one of the most impressive gyms I’ve seen, spanning the length of the spa building.

The Chedi Muscat, 18th November Street, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
From £390 per night in low season. From £936 per night for Chedi Suite in low season.
