For me, unique dining experiences at a hotel are my favourite part of a holiday! Six Senses Zighy Bay definitely does not disappoint. Located on the northern part of the Musendam Peninsular in Oman, with the Hajar Mountains as a backdrop to this village style hotel and the azur gulf of Oman in front – the setting is stunning.
At Zighy Bay there are six different dining options. Starting with the main restaurant – Summer House, this beautiful inside/outside option has tables dotted overlooking the main pool all with vibrant pink and purple napkins, you really feel do on holiday here. The homemade sorbets and ice creams are a must here. Spice Market is where the sumptuous breakfast happens. Also during my stay there was a buffet offering the best tastes and smells of Arabic food.
The Zighy Bar is open for ”no rush hour” cocktails… essentially open until the last person leaves the bar. I highly recommend the delicious tapas for a light meal or snack to accompany a ‘Lonely Mountain Martini’! For a private romantic dinner during your stay, the Wine Cellar is the place for you. It is also very cool, so a perfect place to escape the summer heat! This experience can also be enjoyed with friends or family, seating up to 8 people along with a sommelier offering a personalised and unique insight into some of the worlds most diverse wines.
If you are after a true Arabian, Bedouin experience, starting with local organic salads, then lamb cooked in an underground oven to cooler off with a Lebanese beer – Shua Shack on the beach is an absolute must! It is extremely popular and only open on Mondays and Fridays so be sure to reserve a table.
Available to book throughout the week for breakfast or dinner, you are met at reception by a driver who whisks you away, no more than a 10 minute drive, to arrive at a mountaintop dining spot. For dinner there is a choice of five or seven course set menus and on Wednesday there is a special lobster menu. S
ense on the Edge is one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. With the most eye capturing views over the resort and beyond, mouth watering food and a glass of prosecco in hand…it truly was a ‘heaven on earth’ moment I won’t forget.
