2nd Time Visit - and just as good as the 1st
We never go back to a same location - we like to leave with happy memories, and move on to the next adventure but this time around we made an exception and booked Six Senses again for an 11 night stay in June. We booked a beach front villa (no. 23). Any doubts we may have had on returning, very soon disappeared. Just as it was previously everything was perfect. Food is delicious and all staff are very accommodating. We keep ourselves to ourselves so cannot really comment on excursions/facilities etc, but believe whether you seek the total peace or something a little more, all is well catered for. A big thank you to Presanna for looking after us so well and arranging a wonderful private cinema experience at our villa towards the end of the holiday, and to the barman on the beach for his friendly attitude (sorry dont have his name - he had not been there long, maybe from Bhutan). Anyway 10/10 from us and hopefully a 3rd visit will be on the cards
Great place for young family, especially in European winter
We loved our time here. The whole place is geared towards R&R and they have clearly given enormous thought into making your stay as stress free as possible. Having one point of contact to ask anything of (via whatsapp if you want) is so practical and having them check in with you over breakfast to fill you in about the days events was a great setup. The pools are the perfect temerature, the staff are all lovely, the kids club has a range activitires (we have 2 girls 3,5). In short you are spoiled so rotten, that the prospect of coming home and looking at a dishwasher feels so far beneath you by the end. The only think you could moan about, if you reallly wanted to, would be things that are outside the hotels control, such as that it can get really hot (north of 35 when we went in end March) during the middle of the day or that the marine life is not quite maldives quality. The food was amongst the best I've come across, always varied, always fresh and often made in front of you. Top top notch. All in all, we had a whale of time and will definitely be going back. Thank you to all the staff for making our trip so special.
Heaven behind the mountain
The thing that hits you most at Zighy Bay is the silence. No water sports, no screaming kids (can only conclude that even children are seduced by the peace of Zighy bay and enter a relaxed state on arrival) and because everything you really need is in your villa lots of people only venture out for food. Sense on the Edge is a must visit for five star dining, the breakfast is incredible with healthy options, eggs cooked to perfection and the best on-site cooked pastries. Relax in the spa or work off your breakfast on the tennis court. The beach front villas are the best as with the sea steps away you do not need to leave the villa during the day. Zighy is not cheap but it’s a real treat and I can’t wait to go back.
Simply Fantabulously Amazing!!!
Me and my wife went for a 2 day stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Right from the border post till return, every thing was exceptionally marvellous. The entry through border post was smooth. The gentleman was already waiting there at the post for us. Then we entered the first gate of the hotel before taking the mountain road, the person there already informed that we are arrivng. So upon arrival every thing was ready. We were offered welcome drinks at reception and that was the whole checkin process. We were assigned a personal GEM Shareef, who is actually gem with nice 440 volts of smile all the time. He took us around to show us the property before droping us to the room. This 'never say no' person was always available for our queries through fone and whatsapp and if we wanted anything he would get it done for us. The breakfast was amazing. The best thing was that everything was available through breakfast menu, so the buffet spread was not as big as we find it in other 5 star hotels. But all what you expect in breakfast was there. Not to forget the karak tea was just out of this world ( as per my wife). The two dinners we had one at Shua shack with Omani style lamb grill buried in sand was amazing. The whole experience was delicious. The other dinner we opted was from all day dining in the room and that too was no less than spectacular. The room has a private pool and best thing that it is 100% private. The room size was huge with two shower areas. The room was nicely maintained. The tv had its own movie library which had good movies. Not to forget the feeling of personalized service is amazing and the credit goes to Shareef. The buggy staff was always present. Hussain took us around a few times . I might have forgotten few things, but all in all it was really worth the money and fantastic experience. We r definitely coming back!!
World class resort that is unique and hugely special
Zighy is a unique and exceptional boutique resort reached easily in 2 hours by car from Dubai. It’s a couples paradise with one of the top sandy beaches in the world. Virtually to yourselves. The villas are all small homes in a luxury rustic style. Everyone benefits from the support of a GEM - guest experience manager. Ours was a delightful Balinese lady - Era - for whom nothing was too much trouble. Era handled a couple of demanding situations with maturity and calm. Dining is available in four main locations and the food is world class - Michelin Star standard at The Edge fine dining restaurant on the top of the cliff - close to where the paragliding experiences descend from (both highly recommended) Buggies are readily available within the resort although each villa is provided with bicycles as well. The Six Senses Spa has top class therapists. I had a brutally focused deep tissue massage - just what my upper back was asking for! Every villa has a very large plunge Pool and is within east reach of the sea. I loved to outdoor shower - nothing like showering in the fresh air. All in all the most unique and very special resort I’ve ever visited.
