Last friday was not like any other day. It was the birthday of our good friend Francis and he chose to celebrate his 35th birthday (35 seemed to be the constant figure) at The Chedi Hotel in Muscat.

It was unfortunate that Rolex did not bring his camera. I hope my iphone clicks would do justice to the beauty and serenity of The Chedi Hotel, one of the best hotel in Oman.

Enjoy the photo overload!

The lobby was built with the feel of true Arabic architecture…from the tent like ceiling to the hanging Arabic lamps.

It was a hot summer day and the ocean is just sitting there. So inviting!

Calm and serene

I love the combination of minimalist black and white theme.

I would love to lounge around here, but the sun was not just so friendly that time, haha!

The lobby though simple and not flashy did not fail to amaze me.

Francis taught me & Rolex alot of things…among them is Cognac+Coffee. So every meal with him would not be complete without some wine. So before we sat down to start the food fest, we checkout the cellar first. Their most expensive bottle costs almost OMR 3000 or $7,300…ohmygosh!

I tried to photograph my platterssss and again I failed. This is just what I was able to capture. The rest was digested already, haha! I can say that the buffet at The Chedi was one of the best I had.

After dinner, The Chedi staff were so accommodating that they arranged a tour around the property.

I love the idea that the guestrooms have several huge mirrors.

I’m addicted to dangling lights! Chandelier galore!

There is water everywhere…from the 2 long-stretch infinity pools to fountains and these small patches of water around the property.

I spotted one fountain and these wooden gigantic vases are just classic art pieces.

Date trees

Just white and simple…and beautiful!

There’s still water incorporated in the interiors.

I really wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon here with a book and some refreshments.

Behind me & Rolex is the second infinity pool inside The Chedi Hotel in Muscat.

That’s Sultan behind the counter. Thanks for touring us around the hotel.

Great thanks to Francis for celebrating your birthday with me, Rolex, Asanka & Anthony.
