Private Reserve at Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay

The Resort: Just 90 minutes by car from Dubai, Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay in Oman seems worlds away from the Las Vegas–like emirate. The resort combines elements of an intimate, rustic fishing village and those of a contemporary vacation-home community, with 82 villa accommodations strung along a beachfront site on the northern Musandam Peninsula (separated from the rest of Oman by the United Arab Emirates). Amenities include a central swimming pool, an artisan gallery, a private beach, a gym, a Six Senses Spa, and three restaurants. Upon checking in, guests receive sweet tea and dates and are asked to select a fragrance—frankincense, rose, or lemongrass—for their room.

The Villa: Traditional Omani architecture inspired the design of Zighy Bay’s 32,300-square-foot Private Reserve, which comprises three two-story villas within a walled courtyard. Beamed ceilings and stone floors in the villas pair with locally crafted wooden furnishings and details such as a gleaming copper bathtub for two in the master suite—one of the compound’s four bedrooms. A chef and a live-in butler can serve your meals by the Private Reserve’s infinity-edge pool, at an indoor table for eight, or just off the kitchen at a formal dining table for 14.

The Highlight: Enjoying your chef’s custom-designed degustation menu and selecting among 50 flavors of ice cream, including chili and saffron, for dessert.

The Price: From $15,000 per night for as many as eight guests. +968.26.735555, www.sixsenses.com
