Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 21 April 2015

Morton Johnston has returned to Oman as General Manager of The Chedi Muscat.

A native of Ireland, Johnston originally joined The Chedi Muscat in 2004 as rooms division manager. He was part of the pioneer team and in 2006, after two years in his role, was promoted to executive assistant manager.

In 2007, GHM tapped Johnston for his first general manager role, running a sister property in Korea.

Johnston most recently worked at The Regent Taipei as general manager from 2013 2015 and 2009 2011. In between these two stints in Taiwan, he honed his management skills with the upscale Indian hotel brand, The Leela, in Goa and Mumbai.

The Chedi Muscat is one of those iconic properties that you always hope to go back to someday, said Johnston. Thats as true for someone on staff as it is for a guest, and I feel fortunate for the opportunity to return.

The 158-room Chedi Muscat is spread over 21 acres and boasts one of the largest spas in Muscat. The beachfront resort also features six restaurants and three expansive swimming pools.
