Hotels in Musandam

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.

To know the beauty of the Musandam peninsula, one must leave one's car behind and take a cruise on a traditional dhow boat, gliding into the far reaches of the breathtaking fjords.

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.
