Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Zighy Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Zighy Bay has an impressive destination as one of the world's best for couples. I did wonder how it would be with children (aged 1 and 5) and it was beyond our best expectations - simply stellar! We had a beachfront villa with pool - very spacious, gorgeously decorated and serviced with great attention to detail. Ample space for the children to sleep in the generously proportioned living room and the shallow wading area of the plunge pool meant our baby could also enjoy water play. The beach is pristine with calm, tepid waters. Staff are fantastic: attentive, always at hand without overwhelming, very child-friendly and thoughtful. The resort offers a host of activities. Scuba diving was excellent, the spa is a treat as is a stroll through the organic garden and visit to feed the goats, but the highlight was definitely the sunset cruise, fishing from a handline - a delight for big and small! We'll be back... :-)

Room Tip: Our Beachfront villa was best situated: furtherest from the main hotel centre gives most privacy and...

If heaven would be anything like Zighy Bay, I would be on my way sooner rather then later. What a beautiful place to spend a few romantic nights. The Villa's are gorgeous, food (in all restaurants) is excellent, staff super friendly and the location is beautiful. We had a private BBQ at our villa and were spoilt to bits. We will definitely be returning here.

If you know the Sixth Senses chain you will know that these are luxury resorts taking service to the next level, Zighy Bay resort in Oman is no exception, the unique with this resort is that it's eco-friendly where absolutely possible and the entire design/decor/style of the resort and it's accommodation looks like what you would expect if The Flintstones built a 7 star hotel --- bedrock Luxe!

We booked this hotel for the reputation the chain has and we wanted a villa with private pool for our 2.5 year old toddler and 7 month old baby.. We needed a suite with separate lounge so we could put them to bed and still have an evening.. we needed a terrace for our in room dining for lunches and dinner.. to get this in Dubai would cost a 2nd mortgage.. this offered the perfect solution for our first family holiday...

You will read from other reviews that it's location is remote (over a 2 hour drive from Dubai airport and then over border into North Oman.. the last part of the journey is a rugged drive through mountains up one side via windy road and then down the other side with an amazing sea and private bay view that greats you from a height, the the windy road continues down to the resort... I hate heights so had my eyes closed for alot of it, hubby disagreed... our transfer was arranged through the hotel with a fabulous luxury 4x4 car and experienced driver.. they do this all the time! so don't be put off...we requested child car seats for both babes for safety purposes.

The journey was long after flight and transfer and on arrival we had a fab and calm welcome and given that our villa wasnt ready until about 3pm the manager kindly gave us another villa to use with the babies for a couple of hours.. this was a wonderful gesture and much needed.

We were allocated a butler (apparently one butler to up to 10 villas) her name was Lek, she was excellent and totally efficient, she looked after us each day and almost relished a challenge... Given the remoteness of the hotel, I was concerned that I needed to pack the kitchen sink for the babies as no shops nearby, and although I did just that, there were things we needed once there (simple things like plastic bowl for sterilising baby feeding utensils etc) and again nothing was any trouble and arrived within hours... we celebrated my husbands birthday and they sent a complimentary and beautiful cake to our room...

In room dining was good quality and meals for under 6 year olds are free of charge ! so we were able to order for both the babes each day... a nice benefit for them.

Food and drinks in restaurants over priced totally..so bear that in mind...
Breakfast buffet excellent and the staff are well experienced in dealing with messy babies and toddlers/high chairs etc...

A big concern before arriving was the sleeping arrangements for our toddler in particular as all the floors are flagstone, and we were worried about him falling out of a single bed... they simply turned around (180 degrees) the wooden sofa/bed in our bedroom (against a wall) so that the back board prevented toddler falling out and bed was made up with beautiful high thread count bedding, same as ours... it was a really comfortable and safe single bed for him.. we took travel cot for baby.

We would recommend highly the resort and it offers a really great solution if you are travelling with babies or toddlers... just keep eye on them with stone floors both inside and the terrace outside.. especially if clumsy like ours!

No insects to speak off apart from last 2 days (weirdly).. flies appeared the minute our in room dining meal was unveiled on the terrace - staff appears promptly (on request) with one of those tennis racket zappers!

Detailed Accommodation Info - should you need more detail!:

We had villa 23, beach front villa suite.. couldn't fault the accommodation, extremely spacious, all in great condition despite rustic decor, great sized garden with spacious infinity pool, big terrace for dining, sofa area with cushions and thoughtful gazebo fan, massive beach area within garden for our toddler, gates opening out onto lovely beach...

Suite gave massive bedroom, open plan to bathroom area with shower and toilet off in separate rooms.. the lounge area really big with another shower and toilet off of and further basin and vanity area.. all this lent itself perfectly for hubby and I to put baby and toddler to bed in bedroom and we could enjoy evening on terrace and then in lounge and then get ready for bed in lounge vanity area...

amenities in room excellent (wine fridge, mini bar, coffee machine, kettle, various wine glasses etc and each shower had a door to a further outside private shower area ...each! almost too many showers for one villa! One tiny negative.. the vanity mirrors to bathroom area are set back from the sink vanity units too much together with dim lighting, so impossible to put make up on.. needs well lit shaving mirror somewhere... take one with you! all toiletries unbranded but really nice quality and plentiful. Filtered bottled water supplied to lounge and bedroom twice a day! another nice touch.

Noise from villa to villa does not travel as they are built so close to the sea that all you hear is the waves crashing in...especially at night!

The villa lounge and bedroom all had patio doors facing out to garden and beach/sea, and east facing.. so the sun sets at about 4pm behind the villa..it's dark by 5.30pm.. whole garden is nicely lit though... I believe all the villas face this way...no issue with that. Air conditioning units in both main rooms, no noisier than any other hotel, also very quiet ceiling fan in bedroom which was a nice alternative...

Only criticisms are: 1) all the patio door glass had a "bloom" on it.. .not a real issue but just meant you were looking out through misty glass.. needs replacing.. only a first impression issue really and didnt notice after a few days. 2) the room was efficiently made up every day twice by excellent staff, and looked clean and tidy throughout stay..however it never got properly cleaned with chemicals during stay.. ie bleach down toilet etc... they do a proper clean for check-in it seemed only. That said, it all looks clean overall and worth mentioning that the decor is very rustic with stone sinks, floors and everything else made of dark wood (thai style), so it's not the sort of materials that show dirt...

Stayed here with my hubby to celebrate my birthday earlier on this year and absolutely loved my experience. The room was beautiful and the location was very secluded. We were given the option of paragliding in but passed this up as I like my feet to remain grounded at all times.

They provided us with a bottle of bubbly and yummy chocolate cake to mark the occasion and we pretty much spent the most of our days by our private pool unwinding. Dinner and breakfast were both buffets and were good although it would have been nice to have a wider choice of food options for dinner. The beach is not the best in the world but having my own private pool more than made up for it.

We really had a good time and would highly recommend this hotel. Service was impeccable and they were accommodating with our requests.

This hotel is truely worth the stay. I wont say much because there is no need. Its simply a perfect hotel. The beach is great, the pool amazing, the rooms are great the staff are amazing. The activities are perfect (I recommend the scuba diving).

Only negative is...You are stuck there, so you are forced toe at and drink there, and their prices reflect the power they have over you. Entering the buffet costs around 260 USD per person. By GCC standards that very very high (drinks not incldued).

Overall if you want to splurge, the hotel is an amazing experience.

Room Tip: It mnust be tried at least once in ones lifetime.

The hideaway location does make it a challenge in terms of not having dining options outside of the resort. But we have taken efforts to have a varied choice of destination dining options as well as the restaurant outlets which includes the Fine Dining multi-award winning Sense on the Edge restaurant perched 293 mtrs. above sea level overlooking the white sandy beach.

The minute you arrive you immediately sense the degree of care and love that have went into the hotel. Located in between a secluded mountain and a private beach, the hotel is eco-friendly, complete with an organic farm, fantastic mountain top restaurant, personal bi-clyces and butlers, para-gylding, micro-light aircraft, and loads of water sports. The villas are all fully suited and include private pools and outdoor showers. The six senses spa is what you expect of it anywhere in the world. The staff was also super friendly and well trained. Another thing that impressed me is that the hotel actually developed the entire village around the hotel and trained many of local residents and have gone as far as building water pumps and RO plants. Rare to see an hotel that really cares. In summary, worth the many pennies.
