Zighy Bay is very special. It's a good 20 minutes drive from the gates across craggy mountains to the private resort and what a dramtic entrance it is. We chose car, but some of the guests had par-glided in and you can also arrive by boat.
Our beach pool villa was lovely, although friends of ours had a pool villa and I'd say this was just as good and a much lower rate. You'd obviously loose out on direct access to the beach but gain on £££ - you need to weigh up what's most important to you.
The food and drinks (although the wine list is excellent) are expensive so be warned. No sure the buffets offered value. Also the shop was very dear and therefore a bit disappointing. The service is fantastic - right across the resort and the hotel has some fantastic little touches like "pillow menu's"; a great wine and in villa bar; one of the very best breakfasts I've ever had and "wow" make sure you make the most of the dinner in their mountainside restaurant The Edge. Really stunning - very special.
