Neill and Louisa are here to help give you the inside track.

Sitting on the Musandam Peninsula in northern Oman, Six Senses Zighy Bay is cocooned by a long stretch of spectacular shoreline and towering mountains.

Each villa exudes a blend of rustic charm; natural stone and traditional-style wood ceilings create a cooling effect with each villa containing its own infinity-edge pool, large bathtub and outdoor shower. Modern comforts include a flat screen television, Wi-Fi, your very own private wine cellar and a butler.

The hilltop restaurant, Sense on the Edge, serves decadent menus of international cuisine with stunning views of the Gulf of Oman, whilst down by the beach, Shua Shack offers an authentic Bedouin dining experience. Breakfast and dinner are served at The Spice Market, a casual eatery with a traditional mud kitchen or sip on fresh lemonade in the chic Summer House. The Wine Cellar is ideal for intimate private dinners catering for two to eight people or enjoy wine tasting here with the expert sommelier.

When you're not unwinding in the swimming pool, fitness centre or holistic spa, revel in a host of creative experiences; explorative dhow cruises, rock climbing, scenic 4x4 adventures and plenty of snorkelling, diving and fishing adventures. Relax into the evening with canapes and a cocktail on a sunset cruise.

Why we love it

Six Senses Zighy Bay is home to probably the most original check in procedure on earth; ditch the 4x4 for the last ten minutes and jump off a cliff attached to a hang glider (and an instructor thankfully)!
