As you might expect, facilities here are second to none, with possibly the widest range of sporting and leisure options in the Gulf region. Activities on offer include snorkelling, windsurfing and kayaking (at a charge) and there are 4 tennis courts, 3 outdoor swimming pools, a children’s pool and playground. We also must not forget to mention the beautiful one kilometre private beach, perfect for an afternoon stroll. The much anticipated Six Senses Spa is now open, built in the style of a traditional Omani fort with a backdrop of mountains and offers over 33,000 sq feet of facilities over 3 floors. Facilities include 17 treatment rooms, 3 Hammams, a ladies club complete with relaxation lounge, private beach and pool, as well as a steam room and saunas. The Six Senses Spa also houses a new gym, wellness rooms and yoga and meditation studios. Fans of Six Senses will be pleased to see locally inspired treatments, combined with body balancing therapies and Ayurveda, and a selection of yoga packages from the resort’s in-house yoga master.
