A secluded fishing village on the Sultanate’s northern Musandam Peninsula is the location for these stunning Pool Villas and Pool Villa Suites fronting an expansive sandy beach. The design is an authentic Omani village, bathrooms extend to an outdoor shower area, and all suites and villas have a private pool and butler service. Guests can choose one of three unforgettable arrival experiences: a scenic ten minute speedboat trip; a drive down from the mountains, or choose to travel as a companion passenger with the resort’s professional paraglider - arguably one of the best ways in the world to arrive at your chosen holiday destination. This innovative approach continues into the culinary experiences on offer which encompass Middle Eastern and international favourites, a Summer House bistro, Arabic restaurant Spice Market, a widely stocked wine cellar, an unconventional Zighy Bar and dining high atop the mountains at Sense on the Edge overlooking Zighy Bay. The focus is on holistic well-being; the Six Senses Spa - voted the Best Overseas Hotel Spa by readers of Conde Nast Traveller magazine in 2015 - offers Wellness Programmes alongside nine treatment rooms, two Arabian Hammams, an open air Spa Pavilion and ice cave. Watersports are non-motorised and there is a fully equipped gymnasium, outdoor Jungle Gym, pétanque and tennis court. For adventure outside of the resort, trek into the canyons to climb and swim through rocky gorges, experience a dhow cruise and discover unique fishing villages carved into the Fjords. You can even scuba dive Oman’s most spectacular reefs and witness colourful marine life.
The vertiginous cliffs of the Musandam Peninsula offer a family adventure. Resembling a traditional Omani village, indigenous-chic accommodations front an expansive sandy beach and private marina. Water is the focus - laze in your private pool, snorkel in the bay, experience a customary Dhow cruise or fish with a local using traditional hand lines. Young explorers will enjoy Chaica's Club, offering nature walks, goat feeding and evening films. Arrive like an action film star on a scenic ten minute speedboat trip, a mountain descent drive or with the resort's professional paraglider.
You can enjoy an unforgettable arrival experience at Six Senses Zighy Bay as you paraglide down to the resort.
