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), there are four tennis courts and six outdoor swimming pools, including a children’s pool, plus a children’s playground. We also must not forget to mention the beautiful private beach, perfect for an afternoon stroll. The Six Senses Spa, built in the style of a traditional Omani fort, with a backdrop of mountains, offers over 33,000 sq feet of facilities over three floors. Facilities include 17 treatment rooms, three Hammams, a steam room and saunas, a ladies club complete with relaxation lounge, a pool and an additional stretch of private beach. The spa also houses a 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. The Ritz Kids club offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities, including face painting, water games, cooking and art classes.
