The grace of traditional Omani architecture is combined with minimalist Zen-like Asian influences to offer understated elegance all the way at this exclusive 21-acre beachfront sanctuary just 20 minutes north of Old #Muscat
. We love the feeling of so much space and the overall sense of utmost calm achieved by clean white lines set off by the #simplicity
of the symmetrically designed gardens with their neat labyrinthine lines of manicured hedges and ponds, which are beautifully lit at night. The tasteful combination of modernism and traditional #Arabianarchitecture
present in details such as the dark tile floors throughout was the work of Belgian designer Jean-Michel Gathy. The concept revolutionised hotel design in the Middle East and beyond when @TheChediMuscat
opened as #Oman
‘s first contemporary hotel in 2003 and it continues to be a flag bearer for calm, minimal, ultra-stylish design with 158 rooms affording superb views over the gardens and ponds towards the Hajar mountains and the Gulf of Oman. What do you think? Worth checking in?
