As many reviewers point out, Zighy Bay is expensive. I'd suggest it's like owning a Rolls Royce- you have to enjoy the luxury and forget about the running costs... Our visit was arranged once again by Caroline and her team at stylishresorts.com , do try them, they're superb. We flew Emirates from Birmingham, a convenient service for non-Londoners. The aircraft... More

After visiting Zighy Bay three years ago solo, guilt and prudence impelled me to return with my wife for a five day visit. We were both transported by this remarkable resort- a rustic Arab fishing village re-imagined. Our accommodations were lovely, a vast indoor/outdoor compound with a beautiful deep blue/green plunge pool. The bed and bed linens were both upgraded... More

We are lucky enough for Zighy Bay to be our 3rd experience of a Six Senses Hideaway, first Yao Noi, Thailand and earlier this year Laamu, Maldives. Zighy Bay is a real dramatic and beautiful remote location within easy reach of Dubai Airport. Zighy Bay as with all SS Hideaways is full of personality from the Paraglide experience to the... More

What a wonderful place in every sense of the word. Luxurious and exclusive yet not opulent. Located in a most beautiful and tranquil setting. Wonderfully appointed villa with own pool, looking out onto a pristine white sand beach and beautiful bay beyond. Staff were great, food was superb and spa excellent. Place was really faultless. Would love to return. Just... More

This is a fantastic hotel. Definitely a place to chill and recharge the batteries as it is remote. Whilst it is luxurious it is eco friendly and therefore not over the top with decor or any glitz. The pools and beach are superb and the staff friendly. Booze is very expensive and I recommend half board - easily enough food... More

Difficult to reach but great six senses hospitality will make you forget that. Food especially at the summer house is innovative and tasteful. The place is scenic and rustic with feeling of ancient lifestyle. Slightly overpriced for what it offers.

Amazing experience, right from the first drive over the mountain and down to the beach. The villas are wonderful and you can be equally private in the confines of your own pool or out on the beach with the other guests. Wonderful food - particularly room service - and of course the experience 'On the edge'

Beautiful place for a perfect unwinding with nature all around. The activities are a must to take part in. Paragliding is a lifetime experience for all.
