Six Senses Zighy Bay Embarks on Sustainability Design Refresh

Six Senses Zighy Bay has undertaken a sympathetic refresh on several resort experiences, which is on target for completion at the end of September this year. The resort’s premium accommodations, The Reserve (Beit Musandam) and The Retreats are having their interiors reimagined through a refresh in décor and soft furnishings, which will elevate the accommodations, while maintaining a subtle feel of sustainability.

Additionally, little guests can look forward to a redesign of the Chaica’s Club, which will now be located close to the teens club; Al Feetean’s, meaning that parents can enjoy the convenience of having their children in the same location. The larger refreshed clubs will also include a new Earth Lab, which teaches youngsters about sustainability, natural product making, pottery, as well as a host of outdoor activities to engage young minds and bodies.

Behind the scenes at the resort, kitchens are being brought up-to-date, creating a live kitchen environment for diners at the Spice Market, while the Main Kitchen has been completely renovated to incorporate new, energy-saving equipment to help the resort continue its drive for conservancy and provide a refreshed environment for the resort’s culinary team. In the meantime, Sense on the Edge has opened for lunch, for a limited time, meaning that guests can enjoy the spectacular views from the mountain-top location during the daylight hours.

Speaking about the refurbishment, Six Senses Zighy Bay’s General Manager, Aaron McGrath, said: “The resort owners have been instrumental in the design process and this refresh will significantly enhance the guest experience, which is at the heart of everything we do. They’re ensuring that their investment provides a strong design aesthetic and a continued commitment to minimal impact, both from the guest, as well as the environmental, perspective. Between the owners, the resort team and the contractors, we’re on target to deliver our completed project by the end of September.”

When it comes to the exterior changes, the Saltwater pool is being redeveloped, and once reopened will provide a revitalized wellness option for guests, whereby the super salty water helps float away tension and detoxify the body. The resort’s main beach is also getting a makeover, with sand replenishment across the entire length, providing more seamless access to the ocean from anywhere in the resort.

“Our focus has been to ensure a minimum of disruption to guests, whilst improving their experience, and it’s been the cooperation of all parties concerned that we’re enjoying a busy summer here at the resort, and we’ve kept guest privacy and peace as our main priority. We’ll be looking forward to showcasing our new look in a few short months,” McGrath continued.
