Zighy Bay is an escape from the stresses of the modern world. Never felt busy and service always personalised. Some quirky ideas such as "Zighy time", cinema paradiso on the beach and personal bicycles really add to the atmosphere. Food generally good with stunning restaurant 300m above sea level overlooking the resort. Excellent library!

Zighy Bay is a hidden paradise surrounded by high mountains and hard to reach. The last 5 km by car is off way and quite scary, this is really a hide away! The service is excellent, the poolvillas comfortable and clean but they cost to much comparing other accomodation with that price. The food is delicious and the breakfast buffe is very tasty. The spa tratments are good but expensive and not as good as the treatments in other Six Senses resorts, for example Phuket. The resort have a kids club and a lot of activities for children and adults. Don't miss the "shua shack dinner" on the beach!

Just a few hours away from DXB, if you have a UAE residence visa or EU passport take Dibba exit & no need for visa stamp. A little rough road few meters till the entrance. A lovely Omani with a BIG smile will welcome you & offer water. Once you arrive you have the option to keep the car parked there or you can take th challenge of the off-road going up into the mountain cliff. DON'T TRY TO BE A SUERHERO if your steering wheel is a mess. A 4x4 can pick you up. TIP: Sit at the left side of the car at the back of the driver to experience the chills of spectacular heights. You'll be welcomed with dates smoothies at the lobby while the manager asks you how the drive was. (Love the dates smoothie). The ceilings of the lobby are relaxing as they take the photocopy of your passports. The rooms are wide and very open. Our Pool Villa was very nice with the private pool & majlis. My excitement boosted up when I heard that we can ride our bikes ( I have never ridden a bike for a long time). It was not easy to turn on & off the AC's. TIP: If you're looking for the hairdryer it's inside the closet. The next morning we had buffet breakfast. I had the eggs Benedict & all of the fruit jams & spread that they have were all freshly made from their organic farm. As the morning starts you'll be greeted by cheerful staff with their very cozy uniform (so fresh in the eyes that they want to say WE WANT TO PAMPER YOU UP!). All of the staff are so helpful & cheerful that you'll tell yourself that "I must be cranky person..or I really need to relax. We stayed at the pool and recognized there was no Lifeguard. At the beach you'll see the vast Omani sea and the blue sky with para-gliders drawing a great scene from the mountains. Everything was just NICE NICE NICE..but..yes, there is a BUT. The generators or those power boxes were too loud. And I may say that there might be complaints about the privacy of the villas but those curtain looking drapers that were used to cover the fences are just UGLY.

During breakfast, they have these printed out news papers in English, French & Deutsch. The bars and restaurants close at 12 pm. Since it's a retreat/rejuvenating place, I think it is really the reason not to keep them till morning. But you ca always have room service. I GOT ENGAGED HERE!! Such a perfect place.

Room Tip: All the Pool Villas are amazing - either for couples for children. You may have your own pool but the exiting huge pool they have is also great.

We have just returned from 5 blissful days at Zighy Bay which was recommended and booked for us by Shaw Travel. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We were met at the airport where our bags were collected and visa's organised whilst we relaxed with a wonderful refreshing drink.
On arrival we were introduced to our charming and very helpful butler Julius and from then on it was full relaxation. Sonia Shaw recommended dinner at Sense on the Edge which was an evening none of us will forget, the Arabic menu was sensational. Our dinner on top of the wine Tower was also very special and private. Being foodies with husbands that enjoy cooking cooking the Arabic cookery course proved fun and informative with chef Ali.
Our room was amazing, all the food especially breakfast was fantastic and we left feeling we had been away for much, much longer.
Thank you to all concerned especially George and Danny who also looked after us wonderfully.

I am happy to note that you loved the Ahlan Welcome experience at the Dubai International Airport.

Sense on the Edge Fine Dining, Wine Tower dinner as well as the Arabic cooking course with Chef Ali is indeed an wonderful culinary experience. We have just launched a new menu at Sense on the Edge with our new Michelin Star Chef James, who leads the culinary team at the fine dine restaurant.

On behalf of George and Danny, I would like to thank you for the generous compliments.

We spend 4 nights with our 3 children in Zighy Bay and we were somewhat disappointed by the standard of the hotel. True our butler was very nice and all staff was friendly and efficient they could not make up for the feeling that we paid way too much for this experience. The food is excellent but you pay, especially at the Edge, michelin star prices. What was disappointing most was that a lot of villas have no privacy, you look straight into the pool of your neighbours or the view from your terrace is the backside of another villa. A pity with so much space available. Also the level of maintenance was poor: for example broken tiles in the pool, the telephone did not work, rusty bikes and the toilet didn't flush. Also for a resort that boast on its ecological way of doing things it is amazing that you can not go anywhere without loud noise of the airconditioners everywhere around. Also there are no sunbeds on the beach where there are no stones and you can nicely swim. Some of the spa treatments were great (and if you ask they switch of the AC), and the children really enjoyed the paragliding and microlight.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback, this will be of great help in resolving our shortcomings. I am nonetheless disappointed that your stay did not fully meet your expectations.

First and foremost I would like to apologize to you as its seems we have not lived up to your expectations and we have obviously not delivered to our best. The problems you experienced are certainly not the norm.

Please be assured that a lot of attention has been given to maintain the highest levels of service and facilities at the resort. Personalized service is ensured vide the Butlers and the Villa Attendants who go beyond their way to ensure a memorable stay for all our guests.

There is no excuse for not being able to deliver perfect standards. All I can say is that we are in the luxury hotel business and any areas that need refinement are in constant review as we too seek perfection in our delivery and please be assured of our untiring efforts to achieve this.

Whilst I appreciate my apologies and assurances are of little consequence in retrospect I hope they go some way to restoring your confidence in us.

Kind regards,

Godfrey Vas
General Manager
