If you’ve been to Six Senses Zighy Bay on Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, chances are, you wanted to go back again with a group of friends or family. Now there’s no stopping you. Beit Musandam is a new four-bedroom reserve at a secluded end of the resort, with a private 17-metre pool, in-villa spa and its own gym and yoga studio.
Also known as The Private Reserve, the abode accommodates up to eight adults and four children, who can run wild on a stretch of private beach sandwiched between the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the stark Hajjar Mountain backdrop, while adults bask on poolside daybeds, private terraces and an Omani summerhouse.
Following guests’ arrival by speedboat or paraglider, a personal chef and Guest Experience Manager (GEM) are on hand to cater to every whim, and a raft of complimentary perks including 60-minute signature massage, in-villa barbeque dinner and private dhow cruise are available to every guest. At 3,000 square metres, Beit Musandam is the largest villa in the Middle East, and comes with a price tag of US $13,300 per night.
