Atana Musandam has 105 guestrooms and suites across its eight buildings, sporting the charm and intimacy of a boutique getaway. With architecture inspired by a traditional Omani village, guestrooms are decorated in warm neutrals and dark wood with creamy stone-tiled bathrooms, while rich traditional fabrics and date-palm ceilings create a sophisticated sense of place. Choose which setup best suits you and yours with a range of accommodations, from interconnecting guestrooms to suites with kitchenettes and full-on two-story duplexes.
Take your morning coffee on your balcony or terrace — every room has one, complete with mountain or sea views — and sleep with the doors open to make the most of warm nights. When you're not relaxing in your king-size bed, swing by the lobby’s tour desk and let the friendly staff plan out daily activities for you, such as cruises and cultural tours.
Dine on international, Omani, and fusion cuisine under the intricately painted ceiling in Atana Musandam’s signature all-day-dining restaurant or eat alfresco on the terrace with views of the Strait of Hormuz. If you prefer to unwind in your guestroom or suite, room service is available until midnight. Be sure to try a meze platter with oven-fresh flatbread, hummus, and mutabbal (eggplant dip).
Al Mawra: Choose from an extensive buffet featuring live-cooked extras or à la carte makbus (a spiced rice and meat dish) and fresh seafood, notably Omani lobster. You can choose the “Catch of the Day” or, more impressively, catch your own fish from the Musandam sea and the chefs will cook it to your preference.
The hotel is alcohol-free, so if you fancy a tipple, climb aboard the complimentary shuttle bus to sister property Atana Khasab, just a five-minute drive away.
Soak up the sun in a poolside cabana, keep fit in the well-equipped gym, and treat yourself to a revitalizing massage in the spa, which, along with a sauna, features an inviting menu of holistic therapies from across the globe. Traveling with your little ones? Atana Musandam boasts a kids' pool with a twisting slide and a water cannon. There is also a shaded outdoor playground and a supervised kids' club.
Learn the fascinating art of henna painting with the ladies from Zaree Khasab, an all-female tourism enterprise, and experience the natural wonders of Musandam thanks to the help of the hotel’s dedicated tour desk. Go snorkeling or scuba diving with eels, rays, and all kinds of brightly colored fish; head off on a 4WD tour into the rugged surrounding mountains; or cruise around the majestic fjords aboard a traditional wooden dhow, with dolphin sightings a regular occurrence.
Tucked away on the northern tip of the Musandam Peninsula, Atana Musandam is surrounded by the craggy Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman. You can walk to Lulu Hypermarket, to the beautifully kept 17th-century Khasab Fort, and to the dhow cruise port for a morning on the water. All the while, Sandy Bassa Beach is just a five-minute drive away.
An enclave of the Sultanate of Oman, Atana Musandam is closer to Dubai than it is to the Omani capital of Muscat.
Khasab Airport is just 3 mi / 5 km from the hotel.
Dubai International Airport is 112 mi / 180 km away.
The ferry from Muscat to Khasab, via Shinas, travels 311 mi / 500 km.
