Chedi Muscat opens state-of-the-art spa
Muscat, October 9, 2011
The Chedi Muscat has unveiled state-of-the-art, 12,000-sq m spa and fitness facility that promises guests and members an indulgent and tranquil experience.
The Spa at The Chedi Muscat is the largest facility of its kind in the city, boasting the longest outdoor pool in the Sultanate. The opening also marks a first for Singapore-based operator GHM (General Hotel Management) in the Sultanate.
“This entirely new, purpose-built facility redefines the spa, health and fitness experience at The Chedi Muscat,” said general manager York Brandes. “We have spared no detail in ensuring that the culmination of our efforts results in an inspired and memorable space that is underpinned by style, luxury and sophistication.”
Following a major renovation, the hotel’s wellness amenities have been revamped to feature The Long Pool, a 103-metre outdoor swimming pool; a 400-sq m 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. The Long Pool Cabanas will also offer cocktails and light, well-balanced meals that are inspired by Japanese and Malay cuisine, said a statement.
The health club is furnished with 30 premium 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, said the statement.
While The Spa is expecting steady traffic from its in-house guests, the hotel also plans to release a limited number of memberships. The exclusive memberships will comprise access to all three of the hotel’s pools, its private beach as well steam and sauna facilities.
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. The therapies draw from a range of wellness traditions, including Japanese, Tibetan, Balinese, Thai, Hawaiian and Ayurvedic.
The hotel has dedicated a total of 38 staff, including four expert fitness instructors, to handle service in the new facility. –TradeArabia News Service
