Atana Hotels celebrates the culture of Oman

Atana Hotels is the first ‘home-grown’ hospitality brand to be established and operate in Oman, focusing on traditional Omani hospitality at an international standard, in the Governorate of Musandam, Khasab, Oman. With two diverse hotels, Atana offers a gateway to the delights of the Musandam peninsula for families and adventure-seekers and a window into the diverse culture and traditions of the community. 

 

At Atana, the culture of Oman, interwoven with contemporary elements is celebrated from the design and layout of the buildings, clustered around a courtyard and ‘oasis’,  to the Omani flavours in the restaurant, enhanced by the cultural activities on offer in the hotels.  Celebrating the region’s colourful landscapes, spanning green mountains to azure seas; its welcoming people and their communities, Atana Hotels supports local initiatives and the community in a variety of ways. 

 

Newly introduced for 2016 are weekly cultural nights at Atana Musandam, featuring Omani artists and musicians showcasing their work with an Oud player and local ladies demonstrating the preparation of traditional Omani desserts, with the opportunity for guests to sample the unique flavours as well as learn how to prepare the recipes handed down through generations. 

 

On a weekly basis [Thursdays and Fridays], whilst Omani’s in traditional dress light torches around the courtyard at sunset, guests can relax over coffee and dates whilst listening to the performance of an oud player, indulge in henna painting and breathe in the scented aromas of the bakhour (perfumed incense) spread around the courtyard to greet the night. 

 

 

All toiletries provided in the rooms and suites are sourced and produced in Oman by Al Husn Toiletries, and the laundry bags are hand-crafted by local women from the Khasab Women’s Association, supporting the colourful textile cottage industry which is still very much part of the local community.

 

 

As an integral member of the community, Atana Hotels not only supports local trade and industry but also encourages professional development by training and providing ongoing support to local employees in a nearby restaurant to prepare and serve Omani dishes.  Hotel associates regularly participate in cleaning local beaches alongside residents, and take personal delight in working with the local community to offer guests a true ‘Zaree Experience’ which includes visiting local homes, spending time with local families, and learning first-hand about the culture.
