All Aboard! Six Senses Zighy Bay Offers Private Overnight Musandam Voyages in Oman
September 19, 2022
Six Senses Zighy Bay
takes to the seas for its latest out-of-the-ordinary escapade. The recently refurbished Dhahab – meaning gold in Arabic – now offers one- or two-night voyages for the ultimate sea-hotel adventure.
Guests can discover the dramatic coastline and fjords of the Musandam (also known as the Norway of the Middle East) with close friends or family aboard a traditional, hand-crafted Omani dhow. 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.
The experience would not be complete without enjoying sumptuous meals from a menu specially crafted by a private chef, who can also customize meals to individual requests or dietary requirements. In line with the Eat With Six Senses philosophy, meals are prepared from locally sourced organic produce, incorporating fresh catch of the day. Morning and afternoon snacks are always available, alongside breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
“The Dhahab has its own journey – to craft memorable voyages and bespoke experiences. Guests who prefer above-water activities can tour the fjords in kayaks (both single and twin), snorkel, hand-line fish, or perfect their tubing skills,” says General Manager Andrew Spearman. “A selection of spa treatments by seasoned Six Senses Spa therapists, as well as fitness and morning yoga classes, can also be arranged on board the Dhahab. Guests can even delve into local culinary traditions with a cooking class.”
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. 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.
A Dhahab experience, including all meals and soft beverages, is priced from USD 2,250 per person per night. Overnight Dhabab boat rental and crew without inclusions is priced from USD 1,166 per person per night.
Six Senses Zighy Bay has also recently launched the “Stay and Cruise” offer, starting at USD 7,250 per person. This includes four nights in the resort’s Pool Villa, daily breakfast at Spice Market, and one night on the Dhabab cruise. As part of the package, guests will enjoy a private chef on board, with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and soft drinks included, alongside non-motorized water sports at no extra charge. There are many other chargeable activities available on request, from spa treatments to water skiing.
