A hidden gem surrounded by rugged natural beauty.
The dramatic landscape of the Musandam Peninsula holds a real treat in store. Where jagged mountains meet a pristine sandy beach, you’ll find Six Senses Zighy Bay.
Offering a paraglide ‘transfer’ in option, this property proves they do things slightly differently before you’ve even arrived. Along the shoreline you’ll come across stonewalled dwellings which look more like a traditional Omani village than a resort.
The sumptuous villas hold all the luxuries you could wish for. Cool off in your private plunge pool, enjoy the peace in your secluded sand garden and take in the shimmering sea from your terrace. The Middle Eastern flavours of natural stone, weathered timber and plump brightly coloured cushions have a soothing appeal.
For award-winning cuisine and jaw-dropping views, visit the Sense On The Edge, a most exotic restaurant perched on the clifftop. Try The Spice Market for traditional Bedouin cooking or head to The Summer House, whose name sums up the cool, calm, relaxed vibe.
Being a Six Senses, it goes without saying the spa is magnificent but for those who get their kicks from being more active, there’s a long list of activities on offer from mountain biking and hiking, to rock climbing, sea kayaking, scuba diving and sunset cruises.
