GHM Takes No. 2 Spot on Travel + Leisure Awards List

Chedi Muscat hailed among top five hotels in Middle East and North Africa

The Chedi Muscat, a 160-room seaside resort on the Gulf of Oman, was crowned with laurels by hundreds of thousands of Travel + Leisure readers, who voted the property into the no. 2 spot on a list of the top hotels in the Middle East and North Africa.

Announced in New York on July 9, Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards ranks with Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards as one of the two most significant hotel accolades in the North American media market. Last fall, The Chedi Muscat took the no. 8 spot in Condé Nast’s survey of the top hotels in the Middle East.

Each of the two awards are based on reader assessments of the nominated hotels, and each of the awards involves hundreds of thousands of voters who evaluate the quality of a hotel’s rooms, facilities, location, service, food and value.

“With the recognition we had last fall, and with this recognition this summer, we are all the more excited to get underway again once we come out of closure,” said the hotel’s general manager, Morton Johnston.

Like many hotels across the region, and around the world, the GHM-managed Chedi closed down with the pandemic. The resort will reopen September 15. 

The resort made its debut in January of 2003 with architecture by Jean-Michel Gathy and interior designs by both Gathy and the late Jaya Ibrahim. Since, the immaculate white resort has won renown for its minimalist design, its 103-metre Long Pool, its 370-metre stretch of private beach and views of the Hajar mountains.

After one of the most significant refurbishments in its history last fall, the hotel emerged with new suites, terraces and a lush landscape.
