Nestled on the rocky Musandam headland, Atana Khasab overlooks a vast seascape, where traditional wooden dhows have for centuries fished the stunning turquoise waters of the Strait of Hormuz. The Atana Khasab is the first of the ‘proudly Omani’ Atana Hotels, Oman’s own local hospitality chain.
The Atana Chain is a four-star hotel and resort operator which blends local Omani traditions with contemporary culture to create a world class experience. The Atana brand offers Omanis the chance to explore new parts of their own country and feel at home instantly in its properties, while providing a fascinating insight into Oman for global tourists.
Pascal Eppink, Managing Director of Atana Hotels commented, “Atana is a flagship concept that is based upon delivering an authentic Omani experience and giving its guests a flavor of Oman. I am pleased to say that The Atana Khasab Hotel has received excellent feedback since Atana introduced its own touches of the local hospitality and traditions that the Sultanate is renowned for. We look forward to announcing the opening of our second property in Musandam soon and are pleased to be hosting guests from Oman itself alongside our international visitors and letting them experience the Atana way.”
Steeped in a rich and proud history, the Musandam peninsula is the most northern part of the Sultanate of Oman and is well-known for its small fishing villages, towering mountains and stunning fjords.
Atana Khasab is a reflection of the quintessential Omani hospitality and promises guests a holistic and inspiring travel experience from the moment they step into the Majlis-themed reception. Whether they are admiring Omani inspired contemporary art or discovering all time Omani favourites off the menu including Mandazi Falafel and the underground favourite Chips Oman Wraps or even taking a dip into the clear waters of the Musandam Peninsula with the on-site PADI certified Dive Centre, Atana Khasab offers its guests shades of Oman. This ‘authentically Omani’ feel permeates every aspect of the property, with modern Omani art and sculpture to be found in the welcome areas, restaurants and corridors, every piece a contemporary interpretation of a culture rich in history and hospitality. The theme is echoed in each of the sixty generously appointed guest rooms and suites, all of which offers breathtaking mountain and sea views.
Atana Khasab adds a new element to the Musandam experience, blending traditional Omani hospitality with contemporary design. It’s the perfect place to unwind – set against the stunning backdrop of the Musandam peninsula, there are also plans to take these design influences a step further at the end of 2014.
Pascal Eppink also added, “Whether visiting for business or pleasure, Atana Khasab is always pleased to introduce you to the Omani way. From the moment you arrive, a warm Omani welcome awaits in our Majlis style reception and this is just the start. We hope that you will leave us feeling like an old friend, because this is the Atana way.”
