Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Six Senses Zighy Bay sits on the northern Musandam Peninsula, on a mile-long stretch of beach, against a dramatic mountain backdrop.

Rooms at Six Senses Zighy Bay

The suites and villas are supremely stylish and full of character, as well as private and secluded. They take inspiration from traditional Omani villages, and feature natural stone and timber, with fresh white walls and high wooden-beamed ceilings. They have plush beds with organic bedding and comfortable sitting areas. 

The colourful and cool interiors leading out onto private pools with high cobblestone walls, shaded verandas and sun loungers to relax on. Combining touches of local culture with the ultimate luxury, the butler service also makes guests feel like VIPs.

Food & Drink

Dine in spectacular settings here: sample traditional Bedouin cuisine at Shua Shack, right on the beach, or dine on the clifftop at Sense on the Edge for the ultimate dining experience, perched high atop the mountains, with panoramic views over the mountains and the sea accompanying your memorable meal.

Go from laid-back dining and drinks by the pool at the Summer House to exotic Middle Eastern cuisine bursting with flavour at Spice Market. You can also treat yourself to a gourmet private dinner in the privacy of your villa, prepared for you by your private chef.

Enjoy tasty tapas and irresistible cocktails at the Zighy Bar – join in for Happy Hour, or No Rush Hour as it’s referred to here – extending to midnight!


Health enthusiasts will love the fully-equipped jungle gym and the tennis court, or for some supreme pampering, experience the divine, award-winning Six Senses Spa. This holistic oasis is nestled in the mountainside, surrounding by towering date palms and lime bushes, and inside, you’ll find several treatment rooms, Arabian hammams, a juice bar – and even an ice cave. The soothing treatments combine ancient healing traditions with modern philosophies. In the morning, enjoy a sunrise yoga session.

Cool off with a dip in the inviting freshwater pool, or simply while away an afternoon poolside with gourmet snacks, refreshing drinks and homemade ice cream brought to your sun lounger. There’s also a 100ft-long saltwater pool, complete with Roman steps and a swim-around island.

Activities at Six Senses Zighy Bay

Head down to the gorgeous mile-long beach to relax on the powdery white sands, overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf of Oman, or venture out to sea to try out a range of non-motorised water sports and discover the colourful underwater world and its plentiful marine life.

Explore this vast natural playground further with scenic hiking and mountain biking, and for a dose of local life, visit the area’s villages and shop in the hotel’s exclusive souk for perfect souvenirs. At sunset, enjoy a cruise in the hotel’s dhow, and after night falls, watch a movie on the beach under the stars at the hotel's very own Cinema Paradiso.

If you are travelling with the family, the hotel's kids clubs cater for all ages, with activities from rock painting, sand art, treasure hunts and pizza making to hiking and canyoning, as well as the chance to learn new skills such as archery and abseiling.
