Six Senses Zighy Bay: a superb resort amid Oman’s unreal landscapes

Six Senses has unearthed an exceptional location for its resort in Oman, in an almost lunar landscape where the Hajar mountains tumble into the crystal-clear bay of Zighy. You’ll get there by 4×4 across the stony desert, and sleep in ultra-comfortable, traditional-style villas with swimming pools. Here, sport and well-being take on a whole new dimension, combining adventure with gentle treatments to restore balance, with tailor-made wellness programs.

An extraordinary destination

Rocky desert, spectacular fjords and turquoise seas form the magical backdrop to Six Senses Zighy Bay. It is located in Oman, at the tip of the Musandam peninsula, on the Indian Ocean side. From Dubai, it’s a two-hour drive by freeway across the desert. Alternatively, you can reach the hotel by boat from the port of Dibba.

The hotel stretches along a long sandy beach, with palm-shaded streets. It feels like a small village in the country. On foot or by bike, stroll through the resort streets to reach the fabulous spa, the immense bay beach or the traditional Spice Market restaurant.

Staying at Six Senses Zighy Bay means the privilege of being almost alone in the world. This extraordinary peninsula offers an exceptional setting for hiking, paragliding, water-skiing and diving in the Hajar Mountains.

Stay on land or sea

The resort’s luxurious accommodations are self-contained Omani-inspired villas made of wood and stone, with high, traditional beamed ceilings and terracotta bathtubs.

Their construction preserves coolness, in contrast to the high temperatures outside. They all feature a sublime private swimming pool with sheltered deckchairs and a dining area. Some overlook the beach, with sensational views of the golf course. The largest villas have the privilege of a wine cellar, pool table and home cinema.

The spa’s beauty and ambience are an instant invitation to surrender to the expert hands of our therapists. Two traditional Arabian hammams, central to the spa’s treatments, sit alongside nine treatment rooms and a sauna with ice cellar.

Other sports can be practiced in the fitness center or outdoors with a sports coach.
