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
Good but not special
Absolutely nothing to complain about it just seemed to lack the "wow" factor that one comes to expect from similar hotels/resorts. The staff were very friendly and the food accommodation and facilities were all fine.
Amazing Zighy Bay
Wow, Zighy bay is out of this world. Its like steeping back in time to a remote village, all be it a 5*+ village where your every need is taken care of. Our daughter loved the kids club and had me joining her every morning to go and meet the camels or goats. Or as the sun setting catching crabs on the beach with the fantastic kids club staff. (I did not mid this at all as enjoyed it my self) Whats amazing is the hotel take there green/ environmentally friendly ethos to every part of the hotel even the kid’s club. We almost felt like we had the whole hotel to our self as there was never more then 2 or 3 families/couples at the pool or on the beach at any time. It was only at breakfast, lunch or dinner you noticed that more guest where staying. It made the setting even more magical that you could explore the hotel village like pathways by yourself. At the time we stayed the hotel where just about to have a refit to 1/2 of the houses and one of the pools. So I guess it will be even more amazing now. We are not normally the types to go back to same place twice however I would come back in a hart beat if the opportunity came, as everything about Zighy bay was amazing.
