Oman’s Six Senses Zighy Bay to reopen in October

The Musandam-based resort will welcome guests once again from 15 October 2021

Six Senses Zighy Bay has announced that it will be re-opening its doors on 15 October after an 18-month closure. With the checkpoint in the nearby town of Dibba currently still closed for tourists, the resort will temporarily bring guests through the northern border of Khasab. A six-hour journey from Dubai, guests will drive to the Al Dhara border, where 4×4 vehicles will be waiting to take them on a once-in-a-lifetime three-hour off-road journey. When the Dibba checkpoint re-opens, the resort will revert to its usual method of transfer. 

All guests must present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival at the border.

For larger families and groups, the resort has recently refurbished its three- and four-bedroom beachfront villas, the Reserve and Retreats, with new furnishings sourced from the region for a modern take on the resort’s trademark rustic design.


Commenting on the announcement, Six Senses Zighy Bay general manager Andrew Spearman said: “We’re all thrilled to be able to welcome guests back to the resort. It’s been a long 18 months where we’ve been unable to see and share guests’ smiles, laughter and sense of wonder when they visit us, and so we can’t wait to get back to what we do best, providing memories that will last a lifetime. 

“We’ve worked incredibly hard to maintain the resort during our hiatus, and we’re looking forward to showcasing it to both familiar faces and new guests, for what will be a new chapter in the story of Six Senses Zighy Bay.”
