Six Senses Zighy Bay, located on Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, is set on a 1.6 km stretch of sandy beach fringed with dramatic rocky mountains. Its design was inspired by a traditional Omani village, with palm-shaded laneways and sandy tracks amongst the villas. Whether you’re looking to unwind or be active, at Six Senses Zighy Bay, the options are endless and the freedom is yours. Relax, book some adventures to embark on, or fit in a little of both!
Guests have the freedom to indulge in local delicacies or enjoy wholesome cuisine thanks to the on-site Juice Bar and Organic Garden. Six Senses Zighy Bay provides a stunning location to breathe, stretch and rejuvenate with yogic programs that deliver the optimum body and mind balance. More active guests may like to consider adding extra local activities such as rock climbing, mountain biking, hikes, snorkeling and scuba diving to further explore the surrounding scenery or simply enjoy an outdoor workout at the Jungle Gym.
At Six Senses, indigenous plants, herbs and fruits are expertly blended and used in treatments that refresh, revitalise and nourish the body and soul, whilst the local environment provides a stunning backdrop for a private yoga or meditation class. Nurture your senses with a traditional Moroccan Hamam experience, starting with warm herbal steam, a coating of black soap and gentle exfoliation using a Kese mitt. Rasoul purifying clay enriched with seven fragrant herbs is then applied to the skin, with a body milk application completing this experience and leaving the skin supple and enriched.
Six Senses Zighy Bay’s social commitment includes activities such as giving support to the local Dibba Girl’s School, Sharjah Charity International and Sukarina bin Al Husain School. That includes not only making donations and providing services to these charities, but also having the hosts of the resort getting very involved in these social activities. The resort also has a very active environmental program, following the universal commitment of the Six Senses group, including the creation of a marine protected area by influencing decision-makers and engaging local communities of the Musandam Peninsula and mainland Oman. The ultimate aim of the study is to protect the reefs of the peninsula through education and capacity building.
Waking up to the picturesque view of ocean and mountains, enjoying an early yoga session, revitalising juice from the Six Senses juice bar, and then relaxing in a private infinity pool, ready for the day ahead! What’s better than that?
