Good service and staff. Lacking on decor and authentic arabic details.
To a degree I had a lot of fun outside here. But there's a lot lacking in the way of visual details that need to be looked at and fixed. With as much attention to detail that went into this property the fabrics and details need a lot of improvement. In some ways the detailing is superb but then by contrast other things are at ends with it . I don't want to go into detail because I have no direct control over adding to it but the place has a lot more potential to 'fill in blanks' than has been done. The outdoor activities were fun and the dining was pretty good with the exception of it needing a better array of cultural deserts. Would like to see some more work done in the way of music to add to the experience. The staff were a relief after dealing with a long trip. With some work the place could feel like you got swallowed into a 90's video game . More potential than most places I've seen . The wine list was ok but could be vastly improved. The pool villa beach room bathroom is like something out of 1001 nights and the wine tower balcony is a fairy tale. But please work on the music. As for the bad reviews due to social distancing these are the same shot-immune-system morons who are all up in the wild animals faces petting and sweating the drooling goats then telling me about covid etiquitte when I take 1 1/2 trillion count of probiotics 41 strains a day and semi annual stem cell injections I hope they get trespassed from the hotel and score some you know what.
Very bad service prior to stay
We have a reservation for January and were trying to reach the hotel for weeks via email and phone but no respond at all. Then today we received an answer that the hotel is closed but we were still able to book/pay for it and there is not even a disclaimer on the website informing interested guests about it. Even the travel agency was not informed until today that the hotel is closed (which seems to be the case for a longer period and not just since today as stated in the hotel email we received). We are currently in Dubai and were closely monitoring travel restriction in UAE & Oman, plus tried to coordinate with the hotels (which was not possible with Six Senses Zighy Bay). The current situation is difficult for everyone but we are really puzzled how bad this is managed by Six Senses Zighy Bay as this causes unnecessary efforts and frustration. A simple disclaimer would have worked for us.
Who knew we live only 2 hours away from an secret oasis by the sea...
For our anniversary, we decided to celebrate in Zighy Bay Six Senses, Oman. Only 2 hours drive from DUBAI, this was the perfect weekend getaway to a location that is so special that upon entering the property, we had to stop a few minutes to take all the beautiful views in properly. The hotel is hidden behind a mountain in a quiet bay and you have a steep 5 min drive down to the resort. For the more adventurous types, you can take a paraglide down the mountain to the hotel! Upon entering the resort, you immediately feel the relaxation and calmness from most Six Senses properties. We booked a one bedroom beach villa with a pool, which was perfect considering the temperature during that time was extremely hot. For the next three days, we spend more time in the water snorkeling in one once the best places in the Gulf. We saw everything from turtles to dolphins thanks to the hotel arranging a boat to take us around the best spots. We even got a tour of the most beautiful caves on the coastline. Back at the hotel, we visited their camel stables in the afternoon to feed the camels and also had an amazing couples massage. We loved the restaurant at top of the resort with a view of the entire property and coastline. Definitely try the Omani Lobster, highly recommended.
Top place not to be missed
Don’t miss out on a few days at Zighy Bay - faultless understated excellence. Staff & facilities & restaurants are wonderful. Make sure you take the hotel boat to the local fish market early in the evening and enjoy the local auctions of the catch of the fishing boats coming in
Unforgettable & Magical Stay
Came to celebrate my birthday and had an amazing time! From beginning to end everything was more than perfect. The food was delicious, the villa was very private and clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful etc... I recommend this resort 300% Loved the experience and will definitely come back
