Accommodation: The Chedi Muscat

Meal Basis: Bed & Breakfast

Muscat is a prime example of ancient history blended seamlessly with contemporary charms: The city has done an admirable job of preserving its old-world splendour, age-old Bedouin culture and traditional values while simultaneously embracing the modern and cosmopolitan. Visit bustling markets permeated with the fragrance of frankincense; feast on shawarmas at local cafes or streetside stalls; catch a world-class performance at the Royal Opera House; or wander the streets of Mutrah at sunset time for beautiful views of Arabian architecture and fishing boats against a backdrop of mountains. Muscat’s opulence and vibrance is complemented by its striking scenery: Set between desert and ocean, it features a dramatic mix of pristine coastline, rugged mountains and hauntingly beautiful sandscapes.

Occupying a beachfront location and only a 15 minute drive from the airport, The Chedi Muscat is a short distance from the city’s business district and main tourist attractions. The exclusive 21 acre resort is ideal for both business and leisure travelers. The clean, minimalist lines of the low rise white buildings are accentuated by gardens of symmetrical simplicity, with lines of manicured hedges and pools of water creating a Zen calm.

The Sultanate of Oman overlooks the Arabian Sea, the Sea of Oman and the Arabian Gulf, and is a haven for lovers of sun and nature, with unspoiled beaches, tropical seas, mountains, wadis, caves and deserts.






Annual rainfall in Muscat averages 10 cm, falling mostly in January. While the mountain areas receive more plentiful rainfall, some parts of the coast, particularly near the island of Masirah, often receive no rain at all during the course of a year.

The hottest months are June through to August, with daytime temperatures in the 40s (degrees centigrade), except for the coastal reaches of the southern province of Dhofar, which has a summer monsoon or khareef and lower day time temperatures. From October to March, the high season, day time temperatures fall to the low 30s and below.


Oman's coastline stretches for a distance of 3,165 kilometres, including beaches overlooking the Sea of Oman, the Arabian Sea and the Straits of Hormuz in the North. The nature of this coastal strip varies from tourist-friendly sandy beaches where many visitors head, and the rocky coasts, bays, islands and lagoons with their diverse geographical make-up, making them ideal for fishing and marine excursions.

There are several Nature Reserves and Parks, such as As Saleel Nature Park which is located in wilayat AL Kamil W'al Wafi. It extends over an area of 220 square kilometres, and is predominantly covered by forests of acacia trees. It is home to a number of rare species such as the Arabian gazelle, the Omani wild cat ("Al Senmar") and other animals which have made this environment their home, including the red fox, the Egyptian Eagle and many others.
