Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay, Oman

Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay, Oman

On the northern Musandam Peninsula of the Sultanate of Oman, Sixth Senses Hideaway resort provides an enchanting atmosphere of Omani style and eloquence mixed with the area’s natural beauties. Nestled in a fishing village between the Hajar Mountains and 1.6 kilometers of white sandy beaches, modern luxuries await the most particular traveler.

The Resort

zighy-bayMusandam is the Wild West of Oman. Cut off from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates, Musandam has a live and let live spirit unusual for this part of the world. Perhaps it has to do with the distance and physical disconnection from the main part of the country, perhaps with the geography of sharp mountains that have traditionally made land travel difficult. The unique character of Musandam will please visitors seeking a taste of an Arabia that is being lost elsewhere in the Gulf region. One advantage for travellers thinking of coming to Zighy Bay is the dispensing of the need for an Omani visa, which makes spur of the moment visits for visitors to neighbouring UAE an easy option.


Pool-Villa-Bedroom-bAt Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay, the luxury of space is primary. All the accommodation is bigger than expected, from the studios to The Reserve, a private compound popular for corporate and family retreats. The two-storey pool villas are extremely spacious and private, though the many features unique to the property (thatched pool wall that opens to the other side, both Western- and Eastern-style poolside relax areas, an outdoor shower in a second private area) do not confine, but rather bring the outside world into your own private world.

‘Casual luxury’ is one of those risky phrases that can conjure images of rattan furniture and plant-print wallpaper, but when it’s done right, it can be splendid. Six Senses does casual luxury right, removing the artifice of the silly-serious aspects of modern life (which designer purse goes with which designer gown?) and gets guests back to a basic focus: you. The name of the place is not just a gimmick; emphasis is given over to stimulating the senses, all six of them, and reminding visitors that all is not lost in the contemporary urban existences in which most of us live.


Food6-bTake that all-important sense, taste. Sometimes these isolated places are a little lacking when it comes to food, and we forgive that because of the logistical difficulty of brining in the produce necessary for fine cuisine. Such exoneration is not necessary at Zighy Bay; the fare is spectacularly tasty and diverse, with a choice of Indian, modern, beachside barbecue, or Arabian cuisines that will leave you wishing you had a bigger stomach. Breakfast buffets are a world apart from the scrums experienced at other hotels; with exotic juices and traditional Arabian food prepared to order and served by staff who themselves look good enough to eat, don’t be surprised if you find yourself lingering around for one last mouthful of pomegranate juice. The aromas alone are very satisfying.

As for hearing, there are choices of suave chillout music or the waves breaking on the shore. Whatever you do, don’t watch television even though the satellite options are many. Seeing the beauty of the isolated location is wonderfully restorative, and this being a Six Senses spa, the touch of the massage therapists will bring another level of physical awareness to your own tired body. As for the sixth sense, that one is up to you.
