The Chedi Hotel, Muscat

Oman is not a destination that is flooded with visitors. Which gives you more space to enjoy the souks, the ancient monuments, the vastness of the desert…and the Chedi.

Muscat is not the most obvious, mass-tourism pace to visit for a holiday in the sun and - unless you have experienced it for yourself - you would never imagine Oman could be so involving, so colourful and so entrancing.

Make for the Chedi Hotel on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Oman and you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the culture of surrounding Muscat. You can experience the total luxury and extravagant hospitality with which Omanis welcome guests. And you can visit souks, perfume makers and livestock markets; venture out onto the massive sand dunes at Wahiba; see turtles at Ras al-Jinz; climb Jebel Shams; explore remote villages and watch traditional boat builders making dhows around the harbour at Sur. Oman is full of possibilities.
