Chedi Muscat Unveils Region's Most Highly Anticipated Spa and Fitness Venue


 

The Chedi Muscat is heightening Oman's appeal as a healthy holiday destination with the grand opening of a state-of-the-art, 2,500-square-metre spa and fitness facility that promises guests and members the chance to buff up and bliss out in style by the shores of the Gulf of Oman.

Upon its debut next week, The Spa at The Chedi Muscat will be the largest facility of its kind in the capital port city, boasting the longest outdoor pool in the Sultanate of Oman.

As a wellness facility with a starring role in the resort, the opening also marks a first for the resort's operators, Singapore-based GHM (General Hotel Management).

"Though The Chedi Muscat was not without a spa before, this entirely new, purpose-built facility is so much more ambitious and expansive that we have to talk about the facility as something entirely new," said General Manager York Brandes. "This isn't so much a successor to our former spa as a complete redefinition of the spa, health and fitness experience at The Chedi."

Following a major renovation, the resort's wellness amenities have been re-imagined to feature The Long Pool, a 103-metre outdoor swimming pool; a 400-square-metre health club; eight new private spa treatment rooms; separate men's and women's steam and sauna areas; and a relaxation lounge, in addition to The Serai Pool, The Chedi Pool and two floodlit tennis courts.

Fitness enthusiasts will find the health club stocked with 30 pieces of top-range Technogym equipment from the Visio Web line in addition to Power Plates, a Kinesis Wall and a Pilates Corner. Among the services offered by the health club will be high- and low-impact group exercise classes, as well as personal trainers.

While The Spa is expecting steady traffic from its in-house guests, the hotel also plans to release a limited number of memberships. The exclusive memberships will comprise access to all three of the hotel's pools, its private beach as well steam and sauna facilities.

Membership will also include complimentary laundry service, spa treatments and sessions with a personal trainer as well as discounts on food and beverage throughout the hotel. Next to unlimited access to the new fitness facility, the most sought-after membership privilege will likely be the generous 30-percent discount on best available rates at GHM properties worldwide.

With 13 self-contained rooms and suites, The Spa has overhauled its product menu in favour of high-end organic brands, such as SpaRitual, REN, VOYA, ila, Abahna and Naturelle D'Orient. Its therapies draw from a range of wellness traditions, including Japanese, Tibetan, Balinese, Thai, Hawaiian and Ayurvedic.

The resort has dedicated a total of 38 staff, including four expert fitness instructors, to handle service in the new facility. The former spa had a team of 14.

Relaxation rituals will feature rejuvenating natural ingredients such as Himalayan cedar, Morrocan rhassoul mud, rosehip seeds, grapefruit and seaweed. The Spa will also offer facials for men, elaborate baths and a full range of beauty treatments.

The Chedi Muscat's blend of Omani architecture and contemporary Asian design will extend throughout its wellness spaces. Wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows in the health club and relaxation rooms will offer prime views of the beach and the Gulf of Oman, while Arabic-inspired details, fret-cut wood and domed ceilings underscore the resort's unique location.

The significant expansion of The Spa at the Chedi Muscat, complete with some of the most ambitious attributes in the region, reinforces GHM's commitment to offer discerning travellers world-class amenities in settings reflective of their destinations.

About The Chedi Muscat
A luxury resort with its own private beach near al Ghubra, The Chedi Muscat is located on an expansive 21 acres of land located approximately 20 minutes from Muscat's old city. The resort features 158 rooms and suites with magnificent views of beautifully landscaped gardens, the surrounding Hajar mountains and the picturesque Gulf of Oman. Dining venues include six restaurants offering Arabic, Asian, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine. Denniston Architects, spearheaded by renown visionary Jean-Michel Gathy, is the creative mind behind The Chedi Muscat's inspired designs while The Restaurant is a creation of Yasuhiro Koichi of design studio SPIN in Tokyo.
