Six Senses Zighy Bay sets sail for its latest out-of-the-ordinary experience. The newly refurbished Dhahab, meaning gold in Arabic, offers one- or two-night voyages for the ultimate sea-hotel adventure.

 

Travelers who book this unique experience discover the dramatic coastline and fjords of the Musandam with family or friends on a traditional, handcrafted Omani dhow. The vessel features three bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, accommodating up to six travelers. The boat once served as a vessel for traders on voyages across the high seas. Now, the dhow sails the less-discovered side of Oman.

 

Spend mornings exploring the quaint fishing villages, the afternoons cruising azure waters and famous diving sites and the evenings watching the sun set over the Hajar Mountains.

 

Your experience won’t be complete without enjoying delicious meals from a specially crafted menu by a private chef — which can also be customized to individual requests or dietary requirements. Six Senses features an Eat with Six Sensesphilosophy, where meals are prepared from locally sourced organic produce and fresh catches of the day.

 

“The Dhahab has its own journey – to craft memorable voyages and bespoke experiences. Guests who prefer above-water activities can tour the fjords in kayaks (both single and twin), snorkel, hand-line fish, or perfect their tubing skills,” said Andrew Spearman, general manager, Six Senses Zighy Bay. “A selection of spa treatments by seasoned Six Senses Spa therapists, as well as fitness and morning yoga classes, can also be arranged on board the Dhahab. Guests can even delve into local culinary traditions with a cooking class.”

 

The voyage takes guests along the waters of Haffa, Sanna’t, Lima, Charia and Hamra. Guests can explore the underwater world, filled with colorful corals and sea creatures with tailor-made dive experiences. During your down time, bring your competitive side out while playing a wide variety of board games or relax in the private lounge and watch a movie. At night, head to the daybeds on the upper deck for stargazing.

Hidden Gem: Discover Istanbul’s Vibrant Balat Neighborhood

The UNESCO World Heritage neighborhood of Balat rivals İstanbul’s Old City for its historic significance, with an added splash of color. Its cobbled hilly streets boast a full rainbow of houses, cafés, restaurants and churches painted in pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues — parts even surpassing my native San Francisco’s steep, colorful corridors. The most vibrant stretch of homes, dating anywhere from 50 to 200 years old, runs along Kiremit Caddesi.

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Review

Palm Springs became a destination of legend when Hollywood’s biggest and brightest during cinema’s “Golden Age” turned the desert community into their glamourous backyard. While restaurants and hotels epitomizing definitive Palm Springs luxury open, adapt and change with the times, it says something that one of its hottest restaurants sets up an outpost back in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what chef Michael Beckman and restaurateur Joe Mourani did on the southern tip of the always-evolving Fairfax District.

Luxuriate in London

My husband and I recently traveled to London, England, on vacation, our farthest trip since the pandemic started. We were there for longer than a week and planned to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible during our stay. Ahead of our trip, we knew we would want to mix in some relaxation, so we booked a couple’s massage at The Lanesborough’s spa halfway into our visit.
