The setting is quite dramatic, with mountains on one side and a 1.6 km sandy beach at Zighy Bay, on the other. The location is the very northern tip of Oman, an extraordinary landscape of 1,000ft high craggy cliffs, desert fjords and pristine sandy beaches washed by deep green waters. The 82 pool villas and pool villa suites are a blend of the surrounding Omani traditional style, with modern amenities, providing luxury amidst local cultural themes. Dine in a modern brasserie or a seafood restaurant, or experience a stunning dinner experience high atop the mountains overlooking Zighy Bay. The resort's spa, operated by award-winning Six Senses Spas, offers eight treatment rooms and focuses on holistic wellness and rejuvenation. This area has some excellent dive sites. On arrival guests have the choice of three arrival experiences: a scenic 15-minute speedboat trip, a drive down from the top of the hill overlooking the bay or travel as a companion passenger with the hideaway’s own professional paraglider.

At Exotic Destinations we are very particular about selecting hotels that fit into our Unique, Boutique, & Luxury mantra. You will not find many (if any) big hotel chains here, just fantastic properties that have great locations, a local flavour, and will add something special to your holiday. We have stayed at each of these hotels, and feel confident in recommending them over and over again. The hotels listed here are a selection of some of our favourites, but we like to keep a few hidden gems up our sleeves too, so this is not a ‘finite’ listing.
