Winter sun dreaming in Oman

July 17, 2023 - For a revitalizing dose of vitamin sea, take to the waters aboard your private Dhahab dhow on an unforgettable cruise voyage discovering the dramatic coastline and thrilling fjords of the Musandam with Six Senses Zighy Bay.

All aboard

The Musandam Peninsula, also known as the Norway of Arabia, is an enticing concoction of beautiful rocky inlets, tiny fishing villages, and sheer mountains running down to electric-blue waters. And there’s no better way to see it up close than onboard a traditional, hand-crafted Omani dhow with close friends or family in tow at Six Senses Zighy Bay.

Epic voyages

Once used by traders on epic voyages across the high seas, today, the dhow sets sail to the less-discovered side of Oman. From mornings exploring quaint fishing villages unaffected by the passing of time to afternoons cruising azure waters boasting some of the world’s most famous diving sites and evenings watching the sunset flicker over the Hajar Mountains, there’s never a dull moment on board. The beautifully designed 90-foot (27.5-meter) vessel features three bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms to accommodate up to six people.

Divine dining experiences

The experience would not be complete without enjoying sumptuous meals specially crafted by a private chef, who can also customize them to individual requests or dietary requirements. Morning and afternoon snacks are always available, alongside breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The siren call of the water

If you’re seeking adventure, why not tour the fjords in kayaks (both single and twin), snorkel, hand-line fish, or perfect your tubing skills? The voyage glides along the glistening waters of Haffa, Sanna’t, Lima, Charia, and Hamra, taking in the arresting beauty of the underwater world first-hand, with tailor-made dive experiences to explore the colorful corals and sea creatures for novices and experts alike.

And relax

For the ultimate relaxation, a selection of spa treatments by seasoned Six Senses Spa therapists is available, as well as morning yoga classes or cooking classes on board.

Inside the Dhahab, there’s a wide selection of board games and a relaxing private lounge to watch movies on demand. At night, the daybeds on the upper deck and the captain’s deck provide the most picturesque platform for stargazing.

You can expect balmy temperatures with uninterrupted sunshine throughout autumn and winter, and if you book a Private Musandam Voyage experience in advance, we’re offering 10 percent off your villa stay until December 20, 2023.
