Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman

Zighy Bay is the ideal and luxurious alternative to the hustle and bustle of Dubai and its perpetual construction work. Exclusively located on the peaceful Musandam Peninsula in Northern Oman, the resort is set on a 1.6km stretch of sandy beach, fringed by the dramatic rocky Hajar Mountains.

In addition to the usual transfer options from Dubai International Airport (2 hours away) - a scenic drive down the mountainside, or a speedboat from a port in a neighbouring bay - arriving guests have the extraordinary option of paragliding with a Six Senses professional down from the mountaintop to the resort to check-in (for a fee)!

The 82 pool villas have been designed and arranged in the style of an Omani village, displaying traditional rustic architectural techniques and furnished to reflect the local culture; sandy, palm-shaded walkways ensure a good sense of space and privacy for guests.

The resort has two main swimming pools, including the region’s only saltwater pool, and offers a range of water sports and other activities. There is also an award-winning Six Senses spa, a library (including a selection of DVDs and music CDs) and a fully-equipped gym.

    Please note: The Sharjah border office introduced new regulations which require all visitors to Six Senses Zighy Bay arriving via UAE to have a border pass. The hotel did require guest passport details in advance in order to process this, and facilitate smooth crossing. We have been informed that the border pass requirement has now been rescinded, however, please check with us at time of booking.
