My favorite hotel architect is Jean-Michel Gathy, one of the three architects who has designed AmanResort’s properties and the choice for many of the GHM hotels, of which The Chedi Muscat is one.
It is very beautiful..at least to my eye. This sleek, superbly maintained hotel on Muscat’s beachfront, is world class. Superior, deluxe and suites, the accommodations are comfortable, complete but not over the top. With views to the sea or, just as happily, to the balanced, beautifully designed water gardens, this is a property to come and rest in..come to stay. There are lovely excursions to take from Muscat..ask for Abdullah who works with 1001 Events…but come home to soak up the sun, eat the delicious fresh fare, and sleep soundly. A great vacation in itself or combined with a jaunt to Lebanon, Syria or Jordan.
