I would never have considered Oman for a wellness retreat, especially not a yoga one, but after seeing at how stunning Zighy Bay looked (and hearing how great the weather would be...) I was swayed to give it a shot. I am so glad I did as I had such a wonderful time, I bought my husband along for company although he wasn't on the yoga retreat and he too loved every second of it. I love that all the villas have plenty of outoor space and private pools, and the staff were so attentive. Most importantly the yoga was great and it was lovely to be able to practice it outside on the yoga pavilion. I will definitely be recommending all my friends to give Zighy Bay a try, I think it would be great for both holiday and wellness retreats alike!
I've always wanted to visit Oman so when I saw Six Senses Zighy Bay on the Healing Holidays website I was really excited. I went for the Yogic Detox programme, wanting something to perk me up a little after the festive period but nothing too intense as I've never enjoyed the more punishing kinds of detoxes! I was really happy with my stay, it helped to not just cleanse my body but my mind too and has definitely encouraged me to get out the old yoga mat and start practicing more at home again too. The resort itself was beautiful and I still can't get over the amazing location, I would recommend anyone to try out Zighy Bay you won't be disappointed!
Bliss. Wonderful resort. Spa facilties great. Villa was upgraded after two days.
