This was our 6th visit to the Chedi but it's 5 years since we were last there so we were pleased to see very little had changed. We stayed in a Deluxe room (slightly larger than the Serai rooms we've had before) and would probably do so again, for the location as much as the room itself. The only downside in the room was they were upgrading the entertainment system so movies on demand weren't available. But that's not why we come to the Chedi! The spa has been completely redeveloped and is superb, with an expanded range of treatments. The hotel's three pools each have a very different ambience and with 6 restaurant options, the choice of food is undeniable. The facilities mean that late night departures are not a problem, even after checkout.The service as always was attentive and refined, if a little reserved compared with our previous visits.
The hotel is on the airport approach but is no longer directly under the flightpath since the new runway opened so is less intrusive for people who don't like watching landing gear coming down over their lounger every 10 minutes at peak times (unlike us, who are flight geeks)
We've previously been there in early March when the temperature and sea breezes are a bit more comfortable - we had 43 degrees this time with higher humidity but this didn't detract from the overall Chedi experience, which we hope we don't have to wait another 5 years to repeat.

My stay in Salalah was very enjoyable. However, I was unprepared for the one hour journey from the airport to this hotel.
Nonetheless, the location offers lovely views with many natural resources(including the wadi and the large sinkhole), and an important archaeological dig---all within easy reach by taxi or tour guides.
So, if you have the patience to take an hour drive to the hotel by their complimentary shuttle service then you will be
rewarded with a beautiful hotel with extremely helpful and courteous staff, great food, a view of the ocean, a nice swimming pool, and the aforementioned natural resources.
