Enjoy a Farm To Table Feast at Six Senses Zighy Bay
March 11, 2017
Guests staying at Six Senses Zighy Bay can enjoy a gourmet experience created with organic and locally grown food. This organic garden contains over 30 different types of herbs and vegetables that the resort’s culinary and spa team incorporates as ingredients in drinks and cooking, garnishing dishes, sauces and spa treatments. The resort also sources various produce from its Dibba farm that features a 19,375 square feet greenhouse.
More than 11,000 date palms dot the grounds of Six Senses Zighy Bay and are harvested from June to August. The dates are used in welcome smoothies, as snacks for arriving guests and in a variety of complimentary Arabic sweets in every villa. The culinary team has also created food items and sauces that incorporate the dates into local gourmet experiences, while the spa team turns them into scrubs that are used in spa treatments.
Six Senses Zighy Bay also uses an organic, homegrown composite as a fertilizer during the planting process. The composite takes over 11 months to create by mixing layers of dried leaves, kitchen and garden waste, a range of organic materials, self-produced bio-char from dead trees and branches, and local goat manure from area goat farmers. The result is an excellent natural raw material and fertilizer.
Manuel Schmidt, the resort’s gardener, who has over 10 years of experience in organic gardening, installing composting systems, landscaping, plus counseling for plant protection and crop rotation oversees the resort’s garden and nearby farm.
Six Senses Zighy Bay is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. The setting of 82 village-inspired pool villas is a spectacular bay, guarded by the dramatic Hajar Mountains and private sandy beach.
Guests have a diverse selection of memorable dining experiences from Sense on the Edge, a contemporary fine dining with spectacular views, to regional specialties at the Shua Shack and Spice Market, a Wine Cellar, a Wine Tower or Dining beyond the Bay at one of the private sandbank.
For a change of pace, in-villa dining is an intimate and most enjoyable experience, which personal butlers will be pleased to arrange.
Six Senses Spa at Zighy Bay is a refuge for mind and body; a sanctuary of ultimate wellbeing committed to delivering integrated wellness experiences. The spa combines peace, tranquillity, fitness and health with ancient and modern holistic treatments from expert in-house and visiting practitioners.
Adventures start with a paraglide arrival into Zighy Bay and allow guests to experience the culture of Oman with the buzz of a chic lifestyle. Dhow cruises, trekking, mountain biking or rock climbing and customized tours suit both the active guest and those who prefer to sit back and relax - taking in all that this rich and vibrant culture has to offer.
