Anyone who sets out from the regional capital Khasab by dhow to explore this unique landscape approaching the Strait of Hormuz plunges into an arena of absolute silence, far removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The play of light and reflections on the water is overwhelming, especially at dawn and dusk.
A well-constructed paved road along the Arabian Gulf links Khasab to Dubai, just a few hours away, and once a week a high-speed ferry boat traverses between Muscat and Khasab, a journey which takes only 6 hours. Khasab also has a small airport which is served daily from Muscat.
Perched on a cliff just outside Khasab, the hotel offers magnificent views of the bay.
The Atana Musandam is located near the port and the fortress of Khasab. The rooms and the hotel are tastefully decorated in traditional style.
Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay is located directly on the Arabian Sea on the Musandam Peninsula, near Dibba and the border with the Emirates. The hotel is surrounded by the impressive backdrop of the mountains on the one hand and a sandy beach on the other
