    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
