Chedis Muscat, Al Bait and Andermatt shine in Middle East & Europe
Two GHM hotels on the Arabian Peninsula and another in Central Europe were recognized on one of the hospitality industry’s most prestigious travel lists, the Readers’ Choice Awards published by Condé Nast Traveler.
The Chedi Muscat in Oman and The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah in the neighbouring United Arab Emirates each won a spot among the top 15 hotels in the Middle East, with Al Bait securing the no. 5 position.
In Central Europe, The Chedi Andermatt claimed a place among the top 15 hotels.
Announced in New York on October 6, the magazine’s 33nd annual compendium of the world’s top hotels is the result of an extensive voting process that was conducted online between April 1 and June 30, with more than 715,000 avid travellers casting millions of votes.
“We’re thrilled that three of the four Chedis now in operation have been elevated to spots on this distinguished list,” said GHM Chief Executive Officer Tommy Lai. “This recognition bodes well for the Chedis in our pipeline.”
GHM plans to open another Chedi this year — The Chedi Kudavillingili in the Maldives — and three new Chedi hotels next year in Mumbai, Khorfakkan (U.A.E.) and Zhudong (Taiwan), as well as a Club and Residences in Zhudong.
The Chedi Muscat opened in January 2003. The Chedi Andermatt opened in December 2013, and The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah, opened in September 2018.
