Stay at Six Senses Zighy Bay
Tranquil, rustic and a world away from the bustle, experience Omani luxury with a calming new twist. With an esteemed sustainability ethos at its core, Six Senses Zighy Bay doesn’t shy away from principle. Rather, it embeds good practice and innovation in ever-inviting ways.Take in sandy walkways and the pure beauty of the bay, as you arrive on a tandem paraglide flight. Your epic entrance is followed by barefoot wanderings through the fig trees. Back at your room, a sommelier stocks the wine fridge according to your preference. Swap your phone for a book, as you laze in a hammock. Sample local tapas and homemade ice cream. With so many encounters, it’s easy to forget this is still your first day. The evening air is balmy and electric. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
The nearest airport to the resort is in Dubai. Via a desert highway, the journey inland takes 2 hours, after which you will surrender to the remote pleasures of Six Senses Zighy Bay. Expect total seclusion, with the rest of civilisation at least 30 minutes away.
82 open-plan stone villas with butler service, and a blissful vibe that’s rustic and chic define the property. Stays are built perpendicular to the sea, so of the three rows of villas, only those in the first enjoy completely undisturbed views and direct beach access.
Who is it for
Couples and families alike will find all they need for an invigorating stay. While the hotel’s sustainability focus may seem adult-orientated, those travelling with children have a kids’ club, teens’ club and jungle gym at their disposal.
