Zighy Bay

The spectacular Zighy Bay, located on the northern Musandam Peninsula of Oman, both combines and defines the best of the Middle East. From sandy beaches framed by crystal blue waters to rugged mountain landscapes and the famed Musandam Fjords, this unique corner of the country is filled with natural beauty in every crevice. Visitors can enjoy days filled with adventure and excitement, exploring beneath the sea, up in the sky, and over the mountains. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the rest of Oman, Zighy Bay is the ideal spot for a weekend or weeklong getaway, to get off the grid and indulge in luxury services, wondrous landscapes, and adrenaline-filled activities that will have people coming back for more. One resort stands out above all others in Zighy Bay: Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort. Guests here will be greeted with world-class dining and spa services, the perfect way to relax after a day out in the sun.

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

Water lovers rejoice: Zighy Bay is home to spectacular coral reefs, rock formations, tropical fish and other underwater life for visitors to take in with their own eyes. Join a dive excursion or simply grab some snorkels and a mask - and don’t forget an underwater camera!

Six Senses Zighy Bay

Zighy Bay, Oman

Enjoying a spectacularly isolated location on the northernmost tip of Oman, this award-winning resort combines a superb coastal position alongside an exciting mountain backdrop towards the south, truly delivering the best of both worlds. This means you can wake up and head out for a swim or sunbathe on the beach, then take full advantage of the wealth of activities available inland, such as hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing - or even take a microlight flight! The range of 82 villas and suites are just as impressive as the location, each providing a private plunge pool, terrace, dining area and outside shower. Villas here are arranged to mimic a traditional Omani village, and the chunky stone walls help to keep things cool, as well as air conditioning throughout. For more space for swimming, head to the resort’s freeform infinity edge pool which overlooks the ocean horizon and has ample sun loungers for a relaxing poolside with refreshment in-hand. For dining, you don’t have to venture too far either. Zighy Bay’s signature restaurant is perched atop the rocky hill overlooking the resort and serves traditional dishes with a modern, creative twist.
