Zighy Bay is located 120 kilometres, or 120-minute drive from Dubai International Airport (DXB), which is the gateway city to Six Senses Zighy Bay.
Owing to the unique location of Six Senses Zighy Bay, guests have the choice of three arrival experiences. The dramatic 4x4 drive down from the top of the hill overlooking the bay is the usual arrival method. For a supplementary charge, they can take a scenic fifteen-minute speed boat trip from a nearby port. For the ultimate arrival experience, they can travel as a companion passenger with the Six Senses’ professional paraglider.
As per governing law from the United Arab Emirates and Sultanate of Oman, no alcohol is permitted on your person when crossing the border.
