Tucked away in the northernmost part of Sultanate of Oman lies a magical place waiting to be discovered.  Six Senses Zighy Bay is set against a breathtaking backdrop of rugged mountains on a mile long crescent of powdery white sand bordering the Arabian Sea.

Oman is one of the Middle East’s most flourishing countries and has become increasingly popular with travelers that are looking for beautiful beaches and spectacular scenery. Zighy Bay is just that and more. The upscale yet rustic “barefoot luxury” resort offers guests peace and tranquility within a setting of beautiful indigenous village-style accommodations. Although located in Oman, Zighy Bay is located on the Musandam Peninsula, which is separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates. The nearest airport is actually Dubai (two hour drive), not Muscat.

One of the most unique facts about Zighy Bay is that there are three arrival options for guests. In addition to the scenic drive from the top of the mountain overlooking the bay and resort, guests can arrive in style via speedboat from nearby Dibba marina or for the more adventurous – you can paraglide in with the resident professional!

Most guests seek out Zighy Bay looking for peace and tranquility but the resort offers a wide selection of daily activities including Arabian cooking lessons, yoga, diving, snorkeling, rock-climbing and of course out of this world spa treatments.

Whether you are after a remote destination experience, a beach holiday or looking for something unique to tie into a more extensive vacation, Zighy Bay is worth the effort to reach and is truly an impressive property. Contact Michelle Pragnell to learn more.
