Zighy Bay has a dramatic setting on the Musandam Peninsula, an exclave of the Sultanate of Oman, separated from the rest of Oman by the United Arab Emirates.

Isabel, Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

The rugged Hajar Mountains lie to the rear and there is a broad sandy beach in front of the hotel. The private pool villas each have their own infinity-edged pool, direct beach access, sundeck, shaded day-bed, personal wine cellar and a 24hr personal butler.

Guests are provided with bicycles for getting around the resort. At one end of the bay is a private marina offering all kinds of watersports, including diving, kayaking, wind-surfing, water-skiing, wake-boarding and sailing. There is also good snorkelling right off the beach.

The Six Senses Spa offers a full range of relaxing treatments, two Arabian hammams, sauna, steam and ice rooms and a gym.

Dining alternatives include a modern brasserie, a seafood restaurant, poolside service around the large central swimming pool, a hill-top restaurant with stunning views over the bay, and a variety of private dining options on request. There are also two bars serving cocktails and tapas.
