Wrapping up the year with family in a secluded haven is just what Six Senses Zighy Bay offers during the festive season, nurtured by beautiful scenery, scrumptious food, and the warmth of good company. Creating an out-of-the-ordinary experience for guests who aim to make the most out of the coming new year, lasting from December 23rd until January 2nd, in a series of joyful surprises, tantalizing aromas and picturesque backdrops, amidst the Omani Hajjar mountains and Arabian Gulf azure waters.
The celebrations offer a unique evening of memories, presented in a different setting. Enjoy a Christmas Eve dinner crafted with an Omani twist, featuring a banquet of local delicacies, a dedicated carving station for slow-roasted turkey, a grill station for locally sourced seafood, and an array of sweets. The air fills with delicious aromas and the dreamy tunes of the Jazz band, floating through the gentle ocean breeze and under the starry night next to the beach. Serving Christmas day dinner, Spice Market, with its recently upgraded show kitchen, will take guests on a journey through the Arabian Gulf and beyond with the Alsafar Arabia buffet. Drawing on the best of what the region has to offer, mixed with traditional favourites from the West, the spread will leave nothing to be wanted.
Not forgetting what the season brings for the little ones, on Christmas day, guests should keep their heads up – literally – as Santa makes his yearly grand entrance flying in on a microlight. He will meet all the children at the resort and, of course, bring them presents and treats. Since he’s visiting Oman, instead of reindeer, his favourite family of camels will be with him.
Stepping into the New Year the Six Senses Zighy Bay way, guests will experience an extravagant dinner on the eve of 2020. The celebration brings the world to their plates with a salad selection focussed on local produce, Asian dishes to spice the evening, Mediterranean fare with a twist, a plethora of live stations, and so much more. Let’s not forget a decadent selection of desserts to cap off the evening on a sweet note. The kids also get their own special dinner buffet and entertainment to keep them occupied and let them join their parents for the countdown. The evening will continue with a dance around the saltwater pool and as 2019 comes to a close with a surprise from the resort, guests will usher their wishes for the new year into the universe.
There’s something special every day as the upgrades at the resort made this summer come into full swing. The spacious Spice Market show kitchen lets the chefs wow guests with their skills and the aroma of fresh food prepared in front of them. With a special themed live station buffet almost every other night, there’s more food to explore than can be imagined.

All the while, the resort’s GEMs (Guest Experience Makers) will guide guests and tailor-make their dream adventures for a once in a lifetime festive experience. There’s enough to explore on the land, the sky, and the sea with the experiences team taking guests trekking into the Hajar Mountains, flying over them in the microlight, or diving into the marine-life rich waters of the Gulf of Oman.
