Six Senses Hideaway, Zighy Bay, Oman

By nature, deserts hold a very special allure. The rugged and arid vistas, the sparse vegetation, the rock formation, and of course the ocean of sand. Even the sunsets are different as they capture the landscape in a unique contrast of colors. At first sight deserts are inhospitable, but with a resort that’s whose conception was all inspired by the desert, there’s a place to call home. The Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay is located in the Sultanate of Oman, is a secluded fishing village on the Sultanate’s northern Musandam Peninsula.


The Six Senses Hideaway Zighby Bay is one of a few hotels in the Middle East that are focused on Environmental Responsibility. With a commitment that encompasses: energy conservation, water conservation, waste management, ethical & sustainable purchasing, and conservation of the natural surroundings.

The resort is designed with 82 pool villas and pool villa suites and with a private marina. The dramatic setting mountains on one side and a 1.6 km sandy beach at Zighy Bay on the other. The choice of dining alternatives include a modern brasserie showcasing a multitude of cuisine flavors, a seafood restaurant, a wine cellar holding over 400 wine bins, a very unconventional lounge and a stunning dinner experience high atop the mountains overlooking Zighy Bay.

A truly novel way that Zighy Bay offers is the choice of transport in getting to the resort. From the common bus ride, a scenic 15-minute motorboat ride, or the most exciting paraglide into the resort in tandem with an expert paraglider! The resort is even planning a short hop on a helicopter ride from Dubai airport in the future. But we still think the paraglide ride says “you’ve arrived”!
