“Best Option in the Area”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very nice hotel with all of the amenities, but my wife was VERY UPSET that we were assigned a smoking room. Be sure to make it clear on the reservation if you want a non-smoking room. Although lunch service took 1 1/2 hours, the lunch and dinner foods were very good.

Room Tip: Be sure to reserve a non-smoking room, it you want one.

We really enjoyed our stay at Atana, we were expecting it to be basic but it was not. The breakfast and dinner was really good. The Dowe trip they booked us onto was great! Family of Dolphins swimming in the waves of our Dowe!!

Room Tip: ask for a sea view!!

With an excellent location for sure, overlooking the bay, this hotel is likely the best in town. However, you really pay heavily for it given the lack of competition. The buffet is more than excellent, both breakfast and dinner, but also overpriced. The pool is not heated, which means you can't really use it in winter, when most people actually visit. The bathrooms are quite small, however clean. Free wifi works great.

Beautiful setting among the 'khors' of Musandam. Recently renamed (was Golden Tulip); we had a very nice and spacious room (just outside the main building, to be reached by 'the bridge'); it is a nice hotel, but somehow, it lacks some ambiance. The pool area is nice, but strangely, there is almost no sun on the terrace the whole day and furthermore, it is rather windy (have to say, the weather was a bit off during our stay). Limited gym. The restaurant is overprized, but there is not much choice since the hotel is located outside Khasab and there are no taxi's in Musandam! The dive school of Khasab (Extra divers) is located in the hotel, just under the pool area.

Great location on the coast just out of town. The building itself is three star although the furnishings are a bit better. The service is good and very friendly. The cheaper rooms with mountain view are a bit bigger than the others and ok provided you can ignore the bad smell from the plumbing in the courtyard.

Difficult to categorise this hotel; it felt more 3 star than 4 star but that's not a complaint. You fly in (you can drive from Dubai) through the narrowest of gaps in the mountains to a tiny airport (only takes propeller jobs) with landing by eye, so we were delayed in Muscat with concerns over cloud and didn't know if we would be able to land until we got there. Musandam and Khasab are so barren and so mountainous, it is difficult to hold onto a sense of aesthetic beauty. The hotel is modern, angular and quite small. It is on its own overlooking the sea and the mountains with a small pool/seating area and outside eating area. Not a thing of beauty and most people are out all day. We had a room in the new block. Only a partial sea room but a lovely large room with a balcony. You have to remember to put the heater on or there is no hot water which was a bit odd.

Breakfast was good, the buffet looked interesting but we ate off the a la carte which was OK. We ate outside which after the heat of the day was windy and a little too cold.

It's not a case of recommending as there really isn't anywhere else to stay. Khasab is barren but interesting - the two things to do are the dhow trip round a nearby fiord and the mountain safari, which is probably more interesting, especially if you have a puncture and have to come down from 1700m to sea level mostly in the dark. Cruise ships call in, which surprised me.

We had a 3-Night stay at this hotel location - however it has been rebranded due to a new contractor owning the place: Atana Khasab Hotel. While the location is the same, it is run differently as some of the earlier critique points have been met. Will write more about The Atana Khasab Hotel.
