What we love
Set under a dramatic mountain and a long sandy beach this hotel really is the best of both worlds!
Setting the scene
With a clear sustainability policy and social commitments to various local charities, Six Senses Zighy Bay resort already ticks the right boxes. In addition, the award winning spa, surrounding mountains and ocean and activities for the kids, make this resort the full package. With nature inspired villas and a unique cliff top perching restaurant, this relaxed resort is perfect for castaways.
With garden views, private beach areas and ocean views, the Zighy villas will ensure guests feel right at (luxury) home. With private butler service for all villas and many with private infinity pools and outdoor dining areas, the villas are furnished in local Omani style and are the ideal retreat for those looking for some peace and tranquillity. For added relaxation, why not book one of the Spa Villas and enjoy sumptuous spa treatments without even having to leave your bedroom?
Nothing can compare to eating fine food on the very edge of a mountain. Sense on the Edge, the resort's restaurant, is perched upon a cliff top and offers magnificent gazing opportunities, as well as tasty dishes including fashkar, duck and apple crumble! This really is a restaurant with a view. There are also five other restaurants and bars to choose from, including the relaxed Summer House for ice cream and sorbet, the traditional offerings from Spice House and the contemporary and just so very cool Zighy Bar, stocked with classic, modern, local and organic mocktails and cocktails.
From a humble pedicure to the more luxurious Aphrodite Bath rituals, the resort's Six Senses Spa offers a mix of the high tech and the holistic to provide a packed range of treatments and wellness programmes, all aimed to install a sense of rejuvenation, calmness and bliss.|For those visitors who yearn to be close to the sea, you can indulge your inner mermaid/man with snorkelling, sea kayaking, scuba diving and hand line fishing. For the more earthbound adventurers, why not try paragliding or mountain biking? And if romance is on the itinerary, then a sunset cruise around the waters of Haffa Bay will finish off your day in style.
For kids aged 4 - 12, the Chaica's Club will be their very own version of paradise. From beach activities to treasure hunts and learning about Arabian history, there is plenty to keep them occupied. For older children, Teen Club will stop the sulking with wadi swimming, canyoning, archery, raft building and abseiling. And the outdoor beach Cinema Paradiso shows a range of family friendly films.
