Six Senses Zighy Bay
Located at the northernmost tip of Arabia, on the unspoilt Musandam Peninsula, this wonderfully secluded fishing enclave has the majestic Hajar Mountains on one side and a mile long sandy beach cove on the other – and has been likened to one of Norway’s great fjords. It has a uniqueness and individuality like nowhere else in the Middle East and promises relaxation, rejuvenation, escapism and the height of luxury in equal measures. With an exclusive yet casual ambience, the indigenous village-style accommodation is beautifully simplistic and with an emphasis on sustainability, but with impeccable standards and all the refinements a discerning guest requires. Each villa features its very own butler, wine cellar, a terrace with swimming pool, shaded dining area and Arabic summer house. Take on para-gliding, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, scuba diving - even whale shark watching - or kick back on a tranquil cruise by traditional dhow, or retreat to the sumptuous spa for authentic Hammam treatments and personalised wellness programmes. Dine at the elevated restaurant Sense on the Edge, which boasts a breathtaking mountain-top setting, or savour exotic Shua Shack Bedouin dishes cooked on the beach in a traditional underground oven.
