Located on the tip of Zighy Bay between the Musandam Mountains and emerald sea, the Private Reserve is a four-bedroom villa with a kitchen, colossal living room and dining space. The main feature is the recreation room, with an oversized pool table, private bar and cinema. The reserve is 32,292 square feet and the largest of its kind in the Middle East, with four separate villas serving as bedrooms, as well as en-suite indoor and outdoor showers. Guests can relax in the oversized infinity pool with an unmatched view.


The Retreats were converted from two-bedroom villas to three-bedroom Omani-style villas, all located at each end of the beach. These 12,077-square-foot villas offer plenty of social spaces, with a lounge, dining area, private bar, indoor and outdoor living spaces and an infinity-edge pool with beachfront sunbeds. These are perfect for family reunions, celebrations or a relaxing weekend away!

“The resort is all about serenity, authenticity, and ultimately spending time with loved ones in a private setting. Our design team has done wonders to make the refurbished villas a home away from home for our guests, and we’re looking forward to helping them create memories that will last a lifetime,” commented Andrew Spearman, general manager, Six Senses Zighy Bay.


When booking your stay, you will give back to the local community, with $10 from every night booked going to Ay Yildiz Wind Power Project in Balikesier, Turkey. This project generates sustainable electricity through wind power and feeds it back in the Turkish national grid.
