Introducing the Hidden Gem of the Middle East: Oman

From the stunning peaks of the Al Hajar Mountains to the heavenly beaches of Al Bustan, it is easy to understand why Oman has been dubbed the hidden gem of the Middle East. Just southwest to the United Arab Emirates and east of Yemen, Oman sits comfortably along the coastlines of the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman. With these luscious bodies of water at its surroundings and temperatures reaching as high as 40 °C, Oman is the perfect destination for the ultimate sun and sea escape. 
If an adventurous camel ride through breath-taking deserts such as the Wahiba Sands or exploring the spectacular Wadi Ghul (aka the "Grand Canyon” of Arabia), isn’t enough to tickle your fancy, then perhaps the following luxury accommodations will be the reason why you add Oman to your bucket list this year. 
Buried within its buzzing capital of Muscat, The Chedi Hotel is the number one 5-star accommodation worth noting when planning your adventure to Oman. Arabian hospitality is taken to new heights at this timeless oasis and relaxation and comfort are considered a priority. With three outdoor luxury swimming pools, the biggest spa in Muscat and deluxe rooms with views of Muscat’s majestic mountains and crystal clear waters, The Chedi guarantees an experience unlike any of you’ve had before.
