Where can you see mountains, desert, beach and ocean all on the same day? In beautiful and historical Oman, that’s where! Travelers to Oman are in for a real treat. This Middle Eastern country presents a fascinating mix of old and new in both its culture and architecture.
Kiwi Collection recommends staying at The Chedi Muscat when visiting Oman. Found in Muscat (the capital city), this luxury hotel is right on the Boushar Beachfront. Guests can enjoy a romantic walk along the hotel’s private section of the beach and enjoy the pristine waters of the Gulf of Oman on their feet, with the mountains in the background.
The hotel was built using characteristics of traditional Omani architecture. With 156 rooms and suites, each is stylishly designed, and most have great views of either the Gulf or the Haajjar Mountains. The hotel also has two turquoise pools lined with cabanas and a water garden.
Aside from the natural beauty and diversity of the area, The Chedi is located in Oman’s most interesting city. This historical place is where the Sultan’s palace can be found, and where all of the old city walls are. Muscat offers travelers a good look at Oman’s rich past and history. Take a trip to Mutrah (the trading and residential area of Muscat) or Ruwi (the city’s commercial district) for shopping, exploring and getting a glimpse of everyday life in Oman.
After a day well spent, grab a cocktail at The Lobby Lounge (an excellent spot to sit and enjoy the hotel’s gorgeous surroundings) and then head to the Arabian Courtyard, which serves authentic Arabic cuisine. Here, you can finish off your evening with a traditional water pipe.
There is no better way to enjoy the Middle East than with The Chedi Muscat, one of the best Oman hotels.
