Six Senses Zighy Bay is an oasis built of natural stone and warm woods where your private enclave invites you to unwind in the cool indoors under high ceilings, in the colourfully cushioned living area and on your cloudlike bed, made with unbleached cotton sheets topped with your choice of ergonomic pillows. Refresh outside within the privacy of high cobblestone walls, on your plumped-up sun loungers and shaded living and dining areas that surround the swimming pool.
Six Senses Zighy Bay, located on Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, is set on a 1.6 km stretch of sandy beach fringed with dramatic rocky mountains. Its design was inspired by a traditional Omani village, with palm-shaded lanes and sandy tracks amongst the villas. The setting is spectacular: dramatic mountains on one side and the sandy beach of Zighy Bay on the other. You have a choice of arrival methods into the resort: by speedboat, jeep or simply paraglide directly in. The Six Senses Spa at Zighy Bay is a refuge for mind and body and a perfect retreat from the busy helter-skelter of daily life. Dining options are excellent and range from a stunning hilltop restaurant serving international cuisine with spectacular views over the crystal waters of the Gulf of Oman, to in-villa dining arranged by your butler.
The Retreat Villa
Our favourite villa, the 4,921sqft two-bedroom Retreat villa, is quietly located at one end of Zighy Bay overlooking the sea. This wonderful haven offers an unsurpassed level of comfort and privacy. The architecture is in symphony with traditional Omani design, combining a relaxed modern aesthetic with cultural themes. It includes a personal spa suite and a state-of-the-art entertainment system.
Outside space is expansive and secluded with plumped-up sun loungers and shaded living and dining areas within the privacy of high cobblestone walls. A traditional Arabic summerhouse surrounds the large infinity-edge swimming pool.
Other accommodation includes 82 generously-sized pool villas comprising 1 and 2-bedroom Pool Villas and Spa Pool Villas, 2 bedroom Zighy Pool Villas and Spa Pool Villas, 2-bedroom Zighy Pool Villa Suites and the 4-bedroom Private Reserve. The villas are designed and furnished to reflect local Omani culture, and offer privacy and tranquillity.
Sense on the Edge is the award-winning mountain-top dining venue 293m above sea level overlooking Zighy Bay. At Summer House enjoy international cuisine overlooking the central pool and wadi from an open-air verandah. Shua Shack offers traditional Bedouin communal dining experience with under sand cooking. The Wine Cellar offers over 250 labels and also hosts small private dinners. The Vinotheque is for romantic dining atop the Wine Cellar. There’s also the Spice Market and Zighy Bar.
