Six Senses Zighy Bay, Musandam Peninsula, Oman
Six Senses Zighy Bay is located in a secluded bay on Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, hidden behind a range of dramatic mountains and set on a splendid 1.6km sandy beach.
It is probably the ideal place to get away – leaving behind the stress and hectic of modern day to day life – and to hide away, to relax, recover and have time to think, enjoy and recharge!
The Resort resembles in many ways a traditional Omani village, with narrow passages between the individual villas and palm shaded, sandy roads and is an almost car-free environment.
Each of the villas, carefully designed and furnished to reflect local Omani culture, featured its own ‘infinity pool’ – hidden away to secure a maximum of privacy and tranquillity. The well-being and relaxation combined with attention to detail and focus on guests personal needs are of prime concern.
Six Senses Zighy Bay is the first property operated by Six Senses Resorts and Spas in the Middle East and offers a wide range of different restaurants and bars, a Six Senses Spa and a variety of leisure facilities and activities.
