Exclusive adventures

Get away and spend time with someone special

 

These exclusive adventures are your key to a magical holiday and include all the senses for you to experience. Included are the always-popular Sunset Cruise and the Dhow Cruise

Sunset Cruise

Experience the infinite horizon and golden views of the setting sun behind the Musandam Fjords as you cruise around on your private speed boat in the still waters of Haffa Bay. Enjoy canapés and just relax and take in the amazing atmosphere of the Musandam.

Dhow Cruise

Experience the history of a Dhow in the Arabian Ocean as you slip slowly through the water beside the Fjords of the spectacular Musandam and explore small bays and unique fishing villages carved into the Fjords. This gallant six-meter high local fishing boat called a dhow, with a history of over 500 years, is one of our popular attractions and is suitable for all ages. This 5-hour cruise includes snorkelling and kayaking, plus a gourmet lunch with beverages will be provided by our own specialty chef team.

Rock Climbing

This half day adventure is the perfect introduction to outdoor rock climbing. You are taught climbing techniques, belaying, climbing knots and introduced to all technical gear. You then have the thrill of climbing and belaying on each of the single pitch routes.

 

During the summer months at Zighy Bay, Rock Climbing may be deferred until 01 September.

At Home

Don’t move any further than Zighy Bay

Forget a car, a boat or any mode of transport

 

Zighy Bay's own natural wonders allow you to put your feet up and the adventures will find you. These include paragliding, moutain biking, swimming and many more.

Paragliding

Paragliding will take place from the top of Zighy Mountain. This is an experience not to be missed. Our professional paraglider will take you around the edge of the mountain range in Zighy Bay, where you can explore the bay from 293 metres above the ground and enjoy the magnificent views.

Mountain Biking

Need a change of scenery? Try mountain biking. You will explore the Hajar Mountains with their wide variety of plants and animals. Downhill Dash and Qasr al Zaiba excursions offer exciting up-close glimpses of Oman’s rugged environment. The Experiences Team also has mountain bikes available for you to explore Zighy Bay. Please wear your helmet at all times, as the roads are busy and the gravel is loose. Your safety is our concern.

 

During the summer months at Zighy Bay, Mountain Biking may be deferred until 01 September.

Zighy Bay Hikes

There are many hikes to take around picturesque Zighy Bay: Smuggler’s Bay Hike, Destination Spa Hike, or even up and over the mountain towards Wadi al Khamsi. Our guided experiences make sure that you take the right goat path through the mountain. Be sure to bring proper footwear as the rocks can be loose

With Friends

Excursions close to home

With guests, locals and our hosts at Zighy Bay

 

Diving excursions, snorkeling trips, fishing adventures and many more fun activities which you can enjoy with family, friends - old and new, locals and our Six Senses Zighy Bay Hosts

Snorkelling Excursion

Get out to some of the excellent locations on a snorkeling excursion, where you can see the vibrant colors found on the reef and the schools of fish that adorn them.

Hand line Fishing

We set off on the open ocean with our best local fisherman to try and catch some great tasting fish called Sheary, using traditional hand lines. If you manage to land one of these tasy Sheary of the correct size, we can deliver it to our chefs to bake, grill or steam it especially for you! 

 

Six Senses practices sustainable fish policies as directed by the "Choose Wisely" campaign from World Wildlife Fund.

Sabatyn 4X4

This easy trek explores the village of the Sabatyn plateau. After a scenic one hour 4x4 drive from Zighy Bay, we reach the plateau 1200 meters above sea level. We then continue to Sabatyn; this village stretches along a mountainside with wonderful views down to Wadi Al Bih.

 

The village contains an abundance of petroglyphs, stone towers and ancient houses that were once home to farmers tending their large terraced fields. After exploring Sabatyn we climb up to a small village with its cooling subterranean air stream. We continue our trek to our vehicles for the scenic drive home.

 

Also enjoy our Sunset Sabatyn excursion: Enjoy a winding drive to the Sabatyn plateau. After finding the perfect spot you will have a selection of canapés and sparkling wine over a campfire as you watch the sun setting over the spectacular mountains.

 

During the summer months at Zighy Bay, Sabatyn may be deferred until 01 September.

Scuba Diving

Whether you want to try diving for the first time in your life, a leisurely dive or a dive course, you will be able to see Oman’s most spectacular reefs and rock formations plus a colorful selection of marine life. As the scuba diving excursions will be operated in cooperation with SSI / PADI certified diving instructors, please contact your butler or the Experiences Team for detailed information on sites and any other relevant issues.

 

Sea Kayaking

Hop in a kayak and drift into the Musandam’s world of secluded beaches and bays, stopping whenever you feel like it and taking a close-up look at the unique flora and fauna.

Family Experiences

A magical destination for children of all ages, Six Senses Zighy Bay offers the Chaica’s Club for children 4 to 12 to keep them occupied and make your holiday a little more relaxing. There's watersports, sand castles, treasure hunts, and learning about Arabian history and local culture.

 

The Teen Club offers adventure hikes, wadi swimming, canyoning or just learning new skills like archery, raft building and abseiling.

 

Cinema Paradiso keeps all the family entertained with movies on the beach under a blanket of stars while our unconventional ushers serve five flavours of popcorn, 40 icecream flavours and refreshing softdrinks.

 

Explore Arabic cooking with our master chefs in the Organic Garden where you will pick your ingredients before learning and practicing details of the wholesome nature that is prevalent in Arabic cooking. For younger guests, cookie and cake making are a fun but messy affair.
