Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. The setting of these beautiful indigenous village-style accommodations and private marina is completely outstanding, with the dramatic mountains on one side and the sandy beach of Zighy Bay on the other. The resort gives the feeling of exciting remoteness, yet offers every comfort and easy accessibility.
Here you are able to say goodbye to the stresses of modern life by escaping to another century on a classic Omani dhow. Inspired by the word, dhahab, which means golden in Arabic, this handcrafted vessel is reminiscent of the golden age of Arabian voyages as it cruises the rugged Musandam fjords at a comfortable 10 knots.
Developed by Six Senses Zighy Bay and their team of specialist designers, the private cruiser is furnished in a relaxed artisan style in tune with its resort roots. Dhahab has the capacity hosts up to six guests in three well-appointed cabins (one king and two twins), and is perfect for families or a group of friends looking for something completely out of the ordinary.

From bow to stern, the vessel offers all the mod cons including an air-conditioned saloon, sun decks, dining areas, cinema and large open galley. The crew, including a chef and butler, ensure exceptional service levels throughout the Odyssey. Setting sail from the resort, Dhahab explores the coast of Musandam where the Hajar Mountains tower over quaint fishing villages, stopping to rest along the way in secluded bays bursting with marine life.
During the three-day, two-night personalized itinerary, time can be spent kayaking, fishing, beach combing, swimming or doing absolutely nothing. There are also options to take a cooking class with the chef, book a bespoke dive or bring a spa therapist on board.
