Sixteen years after opening in Oman, The Chedi Muscat announced it has completed its most significant upgrade to date with new suites and rooms with expansive terraces.
The new top digs, as a result of the upgrade, is the four-bedroom suite, a room category demanded by the rising numbers of families and groups eager for clustered accommodation. A common living room anchors the suite’s four twin-bedded rooms. On the same front, the resort now offers a two-bedroom suite.
Beyond the suites, eight of the hotel’s Serai rooms now sport private, outdoor terraces, and are now known as Serai Terrace Rooms. The Deluxe Club Rooms also received terraces, resulting in Deluxe Club Terrace Rooms.
All of the hotel’s 160 rooms have views of the water gardens, the Hajar Mountains or the Gulf of Oman. Also a part of the refurbishment, the hotel introduced new palm trees throughout the grounds.
In the back of house, the hotel’s investment in kitchen and dining equipment serves to further raise the bar for dining at The Chedi Muscat’s award-winning restaurants.
Also on the culinary side, The Chedi Muscat recently debuted camel-led dinners. The new “Caravan of Taste” is a five-stop, three-and-a-half-hour tour of the hotel’s contemporary interpretations of cuisines developed in Arabia, India and Japan. The journey begins with a Prosecco in the Lobby Lounge Courtyard, where the hotel’s chef details the night’s routing. The caravan sets off in the camel’s path to the beat of a drum, pausing en route by the 300-foot-long pool for Japanese appetizers at the pool’s cabana in a family-style set up. From there, it’s down a sandy path to the hotel’s Beach Restaurant for an array of seafood. The camel’s final stop of the evening is at the Serai Pool, for shisha and dessert.
In addition to the Caravan of Taste, a Picnic Brunch, Arabic Afternoon Tea, Full Moon Dinner and more are now available.
