The ancient Sultanate of Oman sits on the southern coast of the Arabian Peninsula beckoning the inquisitive traveller with its rich history. Located along the ancient Frankincense Route, Oman today is one of the most developed and stable countries in the Arab world. Muscat, its capital, is a mystical city, more than 5,000 years old, where traditional Islamic architecture and unique experiences resonate with old-world splendour.

Just 15 minutes from Muscat International Airport and 20 minutes from Muscat’s business centre, the five-star Chedi Muscat rests on 1,200ft of pristine private beachfront just north of the capital. The resort is on 21 acres of tranquil gardens at the foot of the rugged Al Hajar mountain range, and is lapped by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman. The resort blends the tradition of generous Arabian hospitality with the conveniences of a modern lifestyle. The Chedi Muscat is Oman’s only member of The Leading Hotels of the World, with 158 rooms and suites, six dining options, three swimming pools and the largest spa and wellness centre in Muscat; the 16,000sq ft centre includes 13 self-contained spa suites with poolside views.

The spa embraces Eastern philosophy with Asian oriental rituals. It offers an extensive variety of beauty treatments based on the holistic principles of aromatherapy, Ayurveda and herbalism by ila, VOYA, REN and SpaRitual. The Indulgent Oriental Rituals uplift and soothe the body, the Reviving Body Polishing Rituals refresh the skin and the Rejuvenating Beauty Rituals offer an array of finishing touches such as deluxe facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures. Couples can relax with the Romantic Bathing Ritual, starting with a private steam shower and then enjoying one of the exceptional bath and aromatherapy options.

The Health Club features 30 pieces of first-class Technogym equipment from the Visio Web line and free weights, Power Plates, a Kinesis wall and Pilates. There’s also two floodlit tennis courts and three outdoor temperature-controlled swimming pools; two adult-only pools, including the 340ft-long swimming pool — the region’s longest.
