Six Senses Zighy Bay treads lightly with sustainability

Six Senses Zighy Bay is taking its eco-credentials to the next level, with the launch of Earth Lab, part of the Six Senses global commitment to sustainability. The worldwide initiative was announced last year, and Six Senses Zighy Bay has been working hard to align a number of its ground-breaking ecological activities, while developing their own to serve the resort’s immediate needs. Earth Lab is a concept that engages and educates guests and hosts alike to play, preserve and reconnect with nature.  

When Six Senses Zighy Bay adopted the philosophy of zero waste, the launch of Earth Lab has enabled them to recycle, upcycle and create clean products that can be enjoyed by guests around the resort; such as, soap, body lotion, body scrub and bath bombs. This allows the resort to reduce the carbon footprint of transporting materials especially through upcycling materials into new products that are used as room and spa amenities. 

Six Senses Zighy Bay’s Earth Lab will also serve as a place to communicate work happening off site, for example marine conservation, beach cleaning, farming initiatives and community development. Some of the activities done around the resort include:

- Bottling water on site, eliminating the transportation impacts and use of plastic water bottles
-  Alternatives to plastic straws are introduced and enforced using paper
- Free range chickens produce organic eggs
- Food waste is composted and used to fuel an organic garden and Dibba Farm
- Fruits and vegetables are harvested from our organic garden to provide fresh and healthy meals for guests
- Bees are kept for honey and to pollinate local crops
- Glass (where recycling is not available) is crushed and upcycled into ornaments, jewelry, food and beverage centerpieces etc.
- Seeds are harvested, kept in a seed bank and made available for guests to take and grow organic at home

The Earth Lab logo has a rich story behind its design. The hexagons represent nature’s bee hive pattern and represent Earth Lab’s commitment to producing natural products. The design also evokes feelings of scientific discovery, which we aim to inspire in our hosts, guests, and community members through educational programming. 

Six Senses Zighy Bay is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. The setting of 82 village-inspired pool villas is a spectacular bay, guarded by the dramatic Hajar Mountains and private sandy beach.

Guests have a diverse selection of memorable dining experiences from Sense on the Edge, a contemporary fine dining with spectacular views, to regional specialties at the Shua Shack and Spice Market, a Wine Cellar, a Wine Tower or Dining Beyond the Bay at one of the private sandbank. For a change of pace, in-villa dining is an intimate and most enjoyable experience, which GEMs (guest experience makers) will be pleased to arrange.

Adventures start with an adrenaline-charged paraglide arrival into Zighy Bay which provides guests with a birds-eye view of the resort’s dramatic setting and breathtaking scenery. Dhow cruises, trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing and customized tours await active guests and those who prefer to sit back and relax, they can take in the rich and vibrant culture of the destination at their own pace.

Six Senses Spa Zighy Bay is a refuge for mind and body, a sanctuary of ultimate well-being committed to delivering integrated wellness experiences. The spa combines peace, tranquillity, fitness and health with ancient and modern holistic treatments from expert in-house and visiting practitioners.
