This was our first trip to the middle east and we were a bit nervous as to what sort of standard we could expect in terms of accommodation, food, service etc.. (We normally spend our early holiday in the Caribbean).
We needn't have worried! Zighy Bay is a unique experience.
Everything from the excellent food to our wonderful Gem (butler) Yacob were absolutely top notch.
Our room was just the most restful accommodation we have stayed in. We had a Beach Pool Villa and would recommend this if you can afford the extra dosh.
One of the real benefits compared to the Caribbean was the complete lack of biting insects.
The first night we doused ourselves with deet but after that didn't bother and not ONE bite!
We played tennis every morning at 8.00am and when we returned to our room every day it had been cleaned while we were out. This sort of organisation reflects the excellent management led by Axel Jarosch.
Wouldn't be life if there wasn't something---the hang glider could be a bit annoying.
We are in the process of booking for next year so that's how much we rated Zighy Bay.
