Staycation: The Chedi Muscat

Spend some quality time with the family at this tranquil beach resort in Oman

The rooms 

The 158-room property blends dramatic Omani architecture with calming Asian influences for a five-star stay in a scenic setting beside the Gulf of Oman, surrounded by the Hajar Mountains. Those travelling with kids in tow should opt for a Chedi Club Suite, which fits two adults and two kids, with large living spaces to stretch out in, a private balcony or terrace and exclusive access to The Club Lounge.

The food 

Foodies can indulge at six restaurants and two lounges serving a wide variety of cuisines. A gourmet experience complete with open show kitchens, live piano music and statement interiors make The Restaurant a top choice, with private dining rooms ideal for family gatherings. Alternatively, for views of the glistening swimming pool, The Serai Pool Cabana is open for a relaxed lunch and dinner.

The activities

Cocoon yourself away from the summer heat at the hotel spa, the largest in Muscat, which specialises in Balinese therapies, Ayurveda and indigenous rituals designed to pamper (the Chedi Jade Massage is great for easing deep muscle tension). Keep your fitness goals on track at the floodlit tennis courts, inside the living room-style gym, or by practising your stroke in the three outdoor temperature-controlled pools.
