Escaping from stress dominated everyday life to a spa and wellness vacation is dream come true for many. Take time to unwind in the secluded surroundings of the Six Senses Zighy Bay and allow your body and mind to rejuvenate and recharge in a resort that resembles a traditional Omani village.

In this exotic resort, nestled between breathtaking mountains and a sandy beach; you can view the beautiful marine life and listen to soothing sounds of waves, treat yourself with some tantalizing meals or relax at the Spa. This is place where nature is seen at its best and time is absolutely forgotten.

The resort

Six Senses Zighy Bay is the first property operated by Six Senses Resorts and Spas in the Middle East that offers a wide range of restaurants and bars, a Six Senses Spa and an extensive variety of leisure facilities and activities. Its 82 beautifully designed and decorated pool villas blend into the outstanding landscape and are built in traditional Omani Style. This resort is packed with facilities to pamper you in a serene and almost car-free environment..

The Spa

Spa interiors are authentic and all its ingredients used in the architecture are natural, including the stones from the Hajar Mountains. There are 9 naturally-lit treatment rooms and two Arabian Hammams, and the exclusive spa menu of local and signature treatments including the four-handed Sensory Spa Journey and local Wonders of Oman Journey, promises its guests a wholesome wellness journey that has traditional Omani touch. Its USP is the expertise received at the Spa.

The spa has a rotating calendar of expert visiting practitioners (including Katrina Valente, Lynne Robinson, Shivani Adalja, etc.) which is not commonly seen in the region. The on-site Wellness Director guides guests through wellness programmes and consultations, which make this place a true wellness retreat. The spa facilities also include an outdoor, open-air Spa pavilion for yoga, pranayama, tai chi, etc. Choose a treatment that suits your needs from their wide range of spa offerings and make this holiday an ideal relaxation retreat.
