A remote, idyllic getaway between Oman’s craggy Hajar Mountains and the beach, offering high-octane activities.

The hotel

Accessible by four-wheel drive only – or by paragliding in – and just two hours from Dubai airport, Six Senses Zighy Bay, tucked between the craggy Hajar Mountains and a mile-long sandy beach, feels remote and wild but with all the delights of the Six Senses brand.

The feel here is local and natural, with villas hewn from local stone and beds swathed in unbleached cotton sheets. Pools are cool and inviting, sun loungers are finished with the finest fabrics and beds are cloudlike. Opt for a beachfront pool villa, with ocean views, large terraces and your own private wine cellar.

Days can be action-packed – with scuba diving, paragliding and mountain biking – or restful, with an award-winning spa offering bespoke wellness packages. The kids’ club (for ages 4-10) will whisk away small ones for treasure hunts, goat-feeding and evening movie sessions, while teens have body boarding, archery and football in the jungle gym.
