Set between breathtaking Hajar Mountain range of the Musandam Peninsula in Northern Oman, Six Senses Zighy Bay is a treasure and an oasis of tranquility. It’s hard to know that this gem of a place exists until you cross the mountains into Musandam and arrive at a resort that looks like a traditional rustic Omani village complete with a white sandy beach overlooking the Bay of Oman.
Each of the eighty-two villas is carefully designed and furnished to Omani tradition along with an infinity pool in the private garden. I stayed in Zighy Bay one weekend with my family and stayed at a spacious duplex villa complete with two bedrooms and two shower areas, perfect for families. A getaway here is fun, relaxing and adventurous for both adults and children. The kids club organizes a range of activities to keep your little ones occupied. My boys played frisbee and football on the beach, explored the organic garden for food to feed the mountain goats and even made me some delicious cupcakes in the club. In addition, the restaurants offers a gastronomic kids menu for them to delight in yummy and healthy treats.
For brave-hearted explorers, the resort offers a vast list of activities to choose from such as trekking in the mountains, paragliding and mountain biking, to name a few. But for those who simply want to escape and relax, the Six Senses spa will entice you with their signature treatments and traditional Hammam. You can of course, simply soak in the sun on the beautiful stretch of beach while taking in the spectacular views.
One of the outstanding features of Six Senses Zighy Bay is their organic garden, where they grow herbs, fruits and vegetables, which are all used in the scrumptious selection of restaurants. Dining options include the Spice Market, serving middle-eastern delicacies; The Summer house for al fresco international cuisine and certainly not to be missed is their multi-award winning mountaintop Sense on the Edge for a memorable fine dining experience under the stars overlooking the bay. Guests can also choose to have private barbecues in their villas or a champagne sunrise breakfast.
Six Senses Zighy Bay is a superb choice for families who want luxury within a child-friendly environment, which is without doubt very hard to find. It is also the perfect escape for a romantic getaway. A natural yet luxurious relaxing holiday without the unnecessary opulence found in many of today’s resorts.
