With arrival options including speed boat, 4x4 or paragliding, this is just the beginning of your unique Omani holiday.
Set on the northern Musandam Peninsula, between rugged mountains and an idyllic long sandy beach, the natural colours and stone décor of the resort blend effortlessly into the landscape. Throughout the property, the intricate cobbles, dark woods and terracotta tones, give a sense of tranquillity, which flows into the guest accommodation.
The pool villas here are spacious and cool, with high ceilings, characterful wood furnishings and décor, as well as a dining area and pool with loungers and sand garden. Beachfront villas and suites, opening right onto the shore are also offered, with the ultimate in opulence found at the larger Retreat and Reserve villas, perfect for families or friends travelling together. Privacy is paramount, whichever option you choose.
Dining at Six Senses is diverse and delicious… Enjoy traditional Middle Eastern cuisine at the cosy Spice Market, where the rich red and orange furnishings reflect the warm of the food and ambience. At Sense on the Edge, dine at elevated heights looking down onto Zighy Bay, with the Andalusian chef adding a Spanish twist to the local dishes. The Shua Shack offers light dishes and drinks on the beachfront by day, but at dusk is a Bedouin encounter where you can dine with your feet in the sand.
For an indulgent intimate dinner or interactive journey with the sommelier, the resort’s wine cellar can be reserved – let the Black Opal team book a place ahead for your special occasion.
During a hot Arabian day, you can pick a shady poolside spot at the Summer House for a light bite and refreshing drink, whilst the cool Zighy Bar is also a perfect spot for tapas and cocktails.
For the ultimate relaxation, stroll down the sandy path with towering palm trees to reach the spa – as well as local healing traditions and soothing treatments, there’s also an ice cave, Arabic style hammam and work out activities including sunrise yoga and a jungle gym.
Down at the bay you can step out into the aqua waters to go snorkelling, scuba diving or take a dhow cruise along the coastal fjords. For something more adventurous, there’s hiking, paragliding and off roading, whilst to delve more into the local culture, try hand line fishing, an Arabic cooking class or discover the local villages of Dibba.
