With the spectacular mountains providing the backdrop and sandy beach with calm sea providing the main views the Six Senses Zighy Bay, situated on a peninsular in the Gulf of Oman, is a luxury and serene world away from the fast-paced life we are all used to in Blighty. That is unless you try your hand at some of the adrenaline-fuelled experiences available to hotel guests.
You will fly into Dubai and make your way across the border into Oman, taking the 2 hour journey through the desert landscapes to kick start your family holiday in Zighy Bay. Once here you can chose whether to enjoy the relaxing luxuries of the seaview pool and butler service, enjoy personalised yoga sessions, or take advantage of spa service, and physical and spiritual therapies. Or get active and try new adventures, from microflights over the Gulf, mountain hiking and biking exploring the local villages and historical sites, rock climbing and much more. And if the sea beckons, give hand-line fishing a go (a great activity for all the family to catch your meal to be cooked by a chef), go diving or if you are feeling flush and want a real slice of real luxury, charter a yacht for 3 days complete with on-board staff.
Dining is also a treat, from family meals in a Bedouin-syle beach tent to prviate dining on a mountain-top. And breakfast isn't left out, with dining in the mountains watching as the sun comes up. You can also learn to cook (you and the kids), whilst meal plans are available with children under 6 dining for free and those under 11 discounted.
When it comes to childcare, those aged between 4 and 18 years can join the club activities where they can learn new skills and have fun with new friends. And family down time can be spent at the beach cinema where you can snuggle under blankets and be waited on hand and foot. Before retreating back to your luxury villa or suite, many of which have sea views and private pools.
