Located northeast of the United Arab Emirates on the Musandam Peninsula, about two hours from the metropolis that is Dubai, Oman's adjoining Zighy Bay remains a hidden treasure to many travelers. On one side, dramatic mountains beckon you to go paragliding, canyoning, mountain biking and more. On the other side, blue waters welcome you to snorkel or paddle. Oman is a place for adventure and Six Senses Zighy Bay heightens the experience. The eco-friendly resort features carefully vetted activities as well as skilled preparations of traditional Arabian cuisine so that you can enjoy slow-roasted meats, eclectic spices and completely new flavors.
From your launch point at the top of Zighy Mountain, you'll soar nearly 1,000 feet above the ground. You can trust the logistics to the resort's professional guide as you fly at the edges of the mountain range and over Zighy Bay.
At this destination, you'll enjoy both cascading waterfalls and freshwater springs. Within a 45-minute drive, you'll arrive at the renowned canyons of Wadi Wurayah for an off-road adventure.
Dating back some 500 years, the Dhow is a local fishing boat that's six meters high. On a popular half-day cruise, you'll have the opportunity to snorkel, kayak and discover fjords, small bays and ancient fishing villages.
As with every Six Senses resort, you'll find a commitment to a crafted guest experience during your stay here. This includes personalized butler service, award-winning spa treatments and keen attention to detail.
Oman's Middle Eastern desert climate brings intense heat, especially during the summer. The bay and surrounding mountains help to mitigate this, but you can expect high temperatures throughout the year. Winter, from November through March, features lower temperatures and is considered the most pleasant time to visit. Minimal annual rainfall, however, means you can partake in Oman's many adventurous activities just about any time.
