The risk of being disappointed as a returning guest is particularly pronounced in a hotel in the luxury segment with a promise of quality to meet the highest standards. We have had the pleasure of being guests at the Six Senses Zighy Bay half a dozen times in recent years. And each time we have left with the desire to return again soon. Even though we experienced unusual weather conditions for the region with rain and storms during our two-week stay in February 2024, our stay was once again fantastic. In addition to the unique location, the culinary delights and the individual villas, the people who give their best for the guests are a real delight. Throughout all the departments - wherever you are, every member of staff seems highly motivated and always greets guests with a genuine smile. What is remarkable is that a surprising number of the 400-plus employees have been working there for many years. For us, this is also an indication that the working atmosphere must be good. We also have high praise for the woman at the top: as General Manager, Diletta Guarino runs the Zighy Bay calmly and with great skill. Conclusion: we will be back!

It's a great place and good for the kids. Said at the experience center is always eager to help and looks after kids of all ages. The only thing left for grown ups is to enjoy and not worry about where your kids are. They will probably be playing darts, football or practicing archery.

Starting with the positives. This is a beautiful hotel, in an amazing setting with very considerate staff and service. The rooms, particularly the ones on the beach front are an amazing place to wake up to with the sound of the sea lapping onto the beach. Breakfast is fantastic and the quality of the food generally is of a very high standard. But, and its a very big but, the cost of the food and alcohol is simply outrageous and very difficult to justify. On our first night we had dinner on the beach front buffet. Dinner was lovely and there was a lot of choice, but even with the cheapest bottle of wine on the list, it came to £500 for dinner for two. This set the trend for the rest of our stay, lunch £80-£100 and dinner £400-500. Sadly this left a very sour taste in our mouths and really diminished the view of our stay. Such a shame that the hotel has chosen such an extortionate pricing structure for its F&B. We wont be going back.

As someone who is travelling internationally since 30 years I have seen some really great places and stayed in great hotels. Sometimes when you travel with children it is surprising how a place that claims to be kids friendly turns out in reality. Not so at Six Senses Zighy Bay - this was by far the best family experience I have ever had and our two boys and my wife would join . The staff there and in particular Said made their stay a dream. They learned a lot and had a great time. Said is responsible and smart, and he has always a plan to entertain kids in the best possible way. Besides this the place is just magical. It is an experience like no other and it seems the guests who are chosing this resort are relaxed, friendly and nice - just like everyone who works there. Super professional , always there , and always easy. It is easy to recommend Zighy Bay and its staff and services because there is not one thing I could think of that was not superb.

We had a wonderful stay in Zighy Bay. The villas are incredible and the service from every one of the staff fantastic. Said from the Kids Club was a great archery instructor and really accommodating to three of us learning. The beach is kept pristine and it was great to hear a fascinating talk from the onsite marine biologist. The staff were so friendly and attentive to our one year old son. Highly recommend staying here for a relaxing holiday.

My husband and I booked Zighy Bay for 6 nights but only ended up staying for 2 nights after Iran seized a US oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman within close proximity to the hotel and the escalation that followed. We had already paid in full so asked for a credit for the remaining 4 nights so we could come back in calmer times. Unfortunately this was declined- the hotel said “at this moment the attacks in the Gulf of Oman cannot be seen from the hotel”. It was not at all reassuring that they would only consider a credit/ refund if we could physically see the conflict from our room. Given this approach and the current uncertainty I would not risk booking. Separately to the above issue we found the hotel quite dated compared to other six senses hotels we had stayed in. The hotel is very much catered to families with children but is not super luxurious.
