Feel like it’s time to escape to a more private beach resort? Where crystal-clear ocean waters, endless golden beaches and a private butler are the norm? Then Six Senses Zighy Bay is the perfect choice. 82 private villas sit gracefully against the backdrop of Musandam Peninsula and are fronted by a stretch of luscious sand. And with a world-famous spa to forget all your troubles in – what are you waiting for?
An hour and a half drive from Dubai will have you basking in the Oman sun. Six Senses Zighy Bay is tucked away in its own cove, shielded by the Musandam Peninsula as the Oman Gulf waters caress the golden sands. You are completely secluded in this sun-drenched slice of heaven, and only a short journey from souks, Bedouin camps, mosques, markets and museums – but only if you can bear to leave.
Six Senses Zighy Bay has a rustic charm that oozes Omani romance – it’s barefoot chic at its very best. Your private villa (of which there are 13 styles to choose from) has been designed to reflect the natural surroundings with stone walls and handcrafted wooden furniture creating a relaxing space to unwind and get back to nature. Muted tones run throughout the resort as it seamlessly blends in with the Musandam Peninsula. Each room features an oversized bathtub, home theatre system and private wine cellar so you can pick the perfect tipple to watch the sunset from your terrace
WHY WE LIKE IT
Sure you can get picked up and transferred by a luxury car, but that seems so mediocre now we’ve heard this. You can either paraglide to the resort (with a professional glider) or take a fifteen-minute speedboat trip right up to the bay. Utterly James Bond.
