Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
The award-winning Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort in Oman is not just remote, it's like nowhere you've seen before: surrounded by imposing mountains and on the shores of the Bay of Oman.
The style of the resort rustic chic, with 82 stone villas set among more than 1,500 date palm trees and sandy paths dotted with fig and pomegranate trees. Villas are open-plan with ceilings made of date palm sticks, stucco walls, flagstone floors and dark wood furniture with orange cushions.
Six Senses Zighy Bay has 5 restaurants offering Arabic dishes and specialties made from produce from the hotel’s organic market.
There are two large pools, one of which is saltwater, with hammocks slung between palm trees and complimentary homemade ice-cream. Enjoy the beautiful beach with watersports and dive centre available. Practice sailing, mountain biking and archery. Visit the rejuvenating spa with hammam, sauna and gym, or play some tennis with the mountains as spectators.
Accessible by four-wheel drive only, the 120km journey from Dubai airport to Six Senses Zighy Bay takes around two hours.
