Tra­di­tional Omani dhow now on of­fer at Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman

Travel Daily ME - - News -

The tra­di­tional Omani Dhow is now avail­able for char­ter for three day / two night ad­ven­tures on the coast of Mu­san­dam.

Six Senses Zighy Bay has launched a clas­sic Omani dhow avail­able for two night / three day ad­ven­tures to ex­plore the Mu­san­dam coast­line.

In­spired by the word, dha­hab, which means golden in Ara­bic, this hand­crafted ves­sel is rem­i­nis­cent of the golden age of Ara­bian voy­ages as it cruises the rugged Mu­san­dam fjords at a com­fort­able 10 knots.

Dha­hab hosts up to six guests in three well-ap­pointed cab­ins, one king and two twins, and is per­fect for fam­i­lies or a group of friends look­ing for some­thing out of the or­di­nary.

De­spite its de­sign, the ves­sel of­fers all the mod cons in­clud­ing air-con­di­tioned saloon, sun decks, din­ing ar­eas, cin­ema and large open gal­ley. The crew, in­clud­ing a chef and but­ler, en­sure ex­cep­tional ser­vice lev­els.

Set­ting sail from the re­sort, Dha­hab ex­plores the Ha­jar Moun­tains and quaint fish­ing vil­lages along the coast of Mu­san­dam, stop­ping to rest along the way in se­cluded bays.

Guests have the op­por­tu­nity to go kayak­ing, fish­ing, beach comb­ing and swim­ming.

There are also op­tions to take a cook­ing class with the chef, book a be­spoke dive or bring a spa ther­a­pist on board.

Aaron McGrath, Gen­eral Man­ager at Six Senses Zighy Bay, said : “We are thrilled to launch this beau­ti­fully re­stored clas­sic dhow to our guests. We are com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing un­for­get­table mem­o­ries and look for­ward to wel­com­ing vis­i­tors on­board this ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.”
