IKE A beckoning mirage in the desert, The Chedi Muscat, offers one of the best Oman resort escapes for business and leisure travellers, a genuine five-star experience alongside the crystal waters of the Gulf of Oman, This modern hotel with its elegant traditional lines is sited on the pristine Boushar beachfront with its dramatic backdrop of sheer mountain ranges climbing up sharply from the coast. For all the world you could be in a plush Bedouin oasis save for the sparkling modern facilities.

A short drive from the international airport, this Muscat luxury hotel offers 151 rooms and suites, two swimming pools, a water garden and a stretch of private, sandy shore. Most rooms have scenic views of the Gulf or surrounding mountains. For king-size beds and BOSE sounds systems, choose a Deluxe room, or upgrade to a Deluxe Club Room. Club Suites look out over tranquil ponds or landscaped grounds and open-plan bathrooms have rainforest showers.

For authentic Arabian cuisine, head to The Arabian Court, with traditional water pipes to round off the night. Alternatively, The Restaurant offers Mediterranean, Asian, Indian and Arab fare. The Lobby Louge offers a breezy belvedere for a chilled sundowner, sweeping ocean views and useful time-out with a good book, while the Chedi Poolside Cabana offers light menus that will not unduly tax the system.

The Spa, with seven elegant treatment rooms (including four suites with sunken baths), is a pampering haven. Or just mellow out in the library, at the boutique or at the fine arts gallery. Guests can enjoy two fine swimming pools, a private beach where the sun burns with relentless candour, poolside cabanas and customised sightseeing tours. There are also good banquet and conference facilties.

TheChedi Muscat is managed by fast-growing Singapore-based GHM Hotels who specialise in upmarket boutique resorts, often combining the traditional with unique contemporary flair.
