Set in a spectacular location in the Musandam Peninsula, the award-winning Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort is gently sloping into blue waters and sheltered by rugged mountains. Laid out like a traditional Omani village, individual stone-walled dwellings house standalone villas and suites. Every villa has a private plunge pool with sundeck and lounge chairs, a terrace with dining area, private sand ‘garden’ and shady outdoor majlis plus a lovely outdoor shower.
The bright Oman sun is tamed at Six Senses Zighy Bay by a large central swimming pool and homemade ice cream. Sunset cruises on the bay and phenomenal snorkeling expeditions into the reef await more adventuresome guests, but the Six Senses Spa is an absolute must.
HOW TO GET THERE: Zighy Bay is about an hour and half from Dubai International Airport, a scenic ride over the Sultanate of Oman’s sun-baked mountains.
TIP: Request a paraglide arrival into the hotel for the true action hero experience.
