This five star beachfront oasis on Oman’s tranquil Musandam Peninsula is living in harmony with the local community. 

The Setting

Six Senses Zighy Bay is a two-hour journey across the Musandam Peninsula from Dubai, but getting there is all the fun. By land; a 4x4 trek takes you through the craggy lunar-like Hajar Mountains. By sea; a speedboat glides across the emerald Gulf of Oman landing on the hotel’s pristine beach. By air; a paraglider from on-high descends you into the traditional Omani village-styled resort. Now that you’re here walking the sandy paths, you’ll learn the hotel was voted best in the Middle East for sustainability for a reason. Caring for the environment and looking after local schools, infrastructure and hospitals is what they do.

The hotel also focuses their community impact on women’s access to education. On top of that, they produce their own bottled water from the Gulf using reverse osmosis, the filtered out saltwater is then used in the saltwater pool (the largest in the Middle East). So check-in, enjoy your welcome smoothie made with dates plucked from the resort’s palms and go for a swim with one of the resident camels. Oh yeah, you’ll also learn nothing about this stay will be ordinary. 

Sleep and Sanctuary

Privacy and relaxation are the foundation of the 82 family-friendly villas, all built of natural stone and timber. Dwellings range from one bedroom pool villas with beachfront views to a sprawling four bedroom Gulfside retreat with a 24/7 private chef. All the Omani-style enclaves invite you to unwind under high traditional-style ceilings, in the colorfully cushioned living areas and on organic Naturalmat beds made with fine unbleached cotton sheets, topped with your choice of ergonomic pillows. Refresh outside by falling into your private infinity pool, or take a cool outdoor shower using organic soap made on-property within the privacy of high cobblestone walls. Or, simply drink in the Arabian night and count the stars from your plumped up loungers. 

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Most of your dining on the peninsula will most likely take place at Six Senses Zighy Bay, and that is great news. Embark on a culinary journey from a hilltop restaurant serving signature Spanish-inspired cuisine and evening views over the crystal waters of the Gulf of Oman, to authentic Bedouin-style dining on the beach, tapas at an al fresco bar, feasting from Arabic delicacies made in a traditional mud kitchen, to dining with a private chef in your villa. All dining outposts collectively specialize in wellness and healthy choices,  much of the produce originated in the region and the resort’s own organic garden and farm. 

  • Summer House - This bistro-style spot is perfect for a crisp lunch, afternoon bite, refreshing drink and a fulfilling dinner. Relax on the terrace overlooking the pool, man-made Wadi and the wine tower. Nosh homemade pasta or beets and seeds tartine, or work through a list of homemade ice creams and sorbets all bringing the farm straight to your table.

  • Spice Market - In this Arabic style resto Middle East meets Western classics. Enjoy breakfast and dinner in a comfortable indoor or outdoor ambience among bold colors and a traditional mud kitchen. For a truly local culinary experience, try a four-course Arabian Safari or Spice Market Journey. 

  • Sense on the Edge - This stunning and contemporary fine-dining eatery is 950ft above the azure Gulf of Oman. An Andalusian chef adds a Spanish twist to regional flavors like with the BBQ leek, and naturally paired with a fine wine by the chef. Dine under the stars amid moonlight for a one-of-a-kind sensory experience, reservations here are strongly encouraged. 

  • Shua Shack - The signature Bedoin-style restaurant in a unique sand-in-the-toes setting. The resort’s chefs, through their creations and live grills, provide regional specialties beginning with local organic salads and oriental mezza, followed by slow-cooked local lamb prepared in the authentic Shua underground oven. Vegetarians will opt for cold mezze Baba Ganoush and main courses like traditional Omani vegetable curry. 

  • Mezzeria - The Shua Shack space during the day offers casual, fun and relaxed dining atmosphere near the salt water pool. A combination of Italian osteria, Greek tavern and a shawarma shack rolled into one, providing comfortable dining for the family during the cooler months. 

  • Zighy Bar -  Classic, modern, local and organic mocktails and cocktails throughout the day and evening are served along with tapas overlooking the wadi. Try the pea tacos. Happy Hour is referred to as the No Rush Hour and is leisurely extended from 9:30 pm to midnight.

  • Wine Cellar - An exceptional location for an intimate dinner or interactive and aromatic journey with wine pairings. There is a 4-course vegetarian set menu. 

  • Destination Dining - Guests are invited to fulfill their hearts’ desire and dreams of a private romantic dinner for two or a family dinner enjoyed at their choice of beautiful locations all around the resort. Either by the beach or by the bay, in the comfort of their own villa, at the top of the mountain, atop the vinotheque or staying cool in the cozy wine cellar; out of the ordinary memories of the night will be created beautifully and orchestrated to meet every wish.
