Every year for my Birthday, I give myself as a present, a trip to a destination I have never been before. For my 2019 celebration, I booked myself to a 10 days trip that included Oman as the main part of the itinerary…

My journey began in Dubai, UAE. From there I crossed the boarder to Oman by road, on a 3 hours drive from my hotel in Dubai to the Musadan Peninsula in the north of Oman, for a two nights stay at the very lovely and exclusive Six Senses Zhigy Bay. From there my journey continued to the South, onwards to the Wahiba Sands Desert for an overnight of glamping. Finally I head to the city of Muscat, for my last two nights in Oman, with stay at the spectacular The Chedi Muscat. Enjoy the journey…

Oman my week exploring from North to South in style

Musadan Peninsula

A mountainous Omani peninsula projecting into the Strait of Hormuz, separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates. Its jagged coastline features fjordlike inlets called khors, and its waters are home to dolphins and other marine life. Beautiful beaches and scenery.


Nestled in Oman’s dramatic Musandam Peninsula, where rugged mountains dive into vibrant emerald waters, across a powdery sand beach, the village-inspired resort offers a range of villas, suites and beachfront retreats, each with a private pool, traditional summer house and the time and space to find yourself. There’s something for everyone including eclectic dining featuring local and international cuisine, an award-winning spa and a plethora of unique experiences. > See and Read about my full stay review.

The Six Sense Zighy Bay has a very particular  way to arrive to the resort, if you choose to do so… paragliding.

Not to Miss during your stay are:
Sunset dinner over The Edge Restaurant overlooking the Musadan Peninsula.
