My first two nights of my first visit ever to Oman, began and took place at spectacular Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort in the Musandam Peninsula, nearby the Strait of Hormuz, in Northern Oman. Wellness, relaxation, incredible beaches, spa and sustainability, at its best.

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.

Getting there

The Musandam Peninsula is part of Oman, but it is surrounded by the UAE – United Arab Emirates. The best way to access is by land on private car or transfer from Dubai. So I did. I arranged a private car to pick me up by my hotel in Dubai, and drive me to Six Senses Zighy Bay. The total drive was approximately 2 hours, crossing the line between UAE and Oman via the coastal town of Dibba. It is a lovely scenic drive. There is an airport in the Musandam Peninsula, but do not plan on flying in or out of it. The area is surrounded by military bases, and access to most of the roads is restricted. The best way is are mentioned above. On the way out, as I was heading to Muscat, I took the same private car service, off to Dubai Aiport. 

Paragliding to Check IN?

Paraglide your way into the resort and off to Check IN, if you choose, while your luggage is taken straight to your villa. One minute you’re on our launch pad at 960 feet above sea level, and the next minute you’re soaring with the birds before gently descending to a soft landing on the sands of Zighy beach below. Your pilot will ensure your comfort as you sit back and soak up the beautiful views of the Al Hajar Mountains, ancient fishing villages and the expansive Gulf of Oman. Mid-morning is recommended for optimal conditions.
