How beautiful is the Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort of Oman?
The village-inspired Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort is nestled in Oman’s dramatic Musandam Peninsula, where forested mountains plunge into sparkling emerald waters along a powdery sandy beach. Each with its own private swimming pool, a typical summer house, and luxurious time and space, the villas, suites, and beachfront retreats are indeed marvelous. At the Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort, there’s something for everyone such as diverse dining showcasing local and foreign cuisine, an award-winning spa, and a variety of exclusive experiences.
As a community built on sustainability, what the Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort does is care about the environment and look after their local schools, hospitals and infrastructure. Six Senses Zighy Bay has been active in tree planting since 2016 with friends, residents, the local municipality, and visitors, too. In total, on-site recycling or upcycling of 80 percent of the waste generated on the property (organic or glass) is done. Zighy Bay Oman manufactures its own bottled water through reverse osmosis, and salt water which gets filtered out during the process is utilized in their salt water pool which is the largest in the Middle East!
Wherever possible, Zighy Bay Oman sources as locally as possible so you can often see the chefs of the property down at dawn at the Dibba fish market, supplying local people with a living and an unprecedented flavour of what will be on your plate. The Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort undertook environmental projects including developing a marine protected space on the Musandam Peninsula and Mainland Oman, while at the same time raising education and building capacity. The Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort’s diving hosts are trained to cut ghost nets left by fishermen and save sea creatures trapped in them. Interestingly, the programme was first launched at the Indian Ocean through the Oliver Ridley Project.
