This 11 day Oman and Dubai holiday include luxurious stays at the Park Hyatt in Dubai and Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman.
Just next to Dubai Creek, its golf club, and the marina, the Park Hyatt is a quiet haven in this busy city. Designed in contemporary Arabic style, it’s a low-rise building – unusual in Dubai – with five floors surrounded by gardens and courtyards. There’s an excellent spa here, a beautiful pool, and lots of dining options here serving Thai, French and Arabic food. Rooms are spacious, with balconies or patios, in eight buildings dotted around the resort.
There are plenty of excursions to enjoy from the hotel. Take an off-road adventure into the desert, see traditional villages, the ancient fossil rock, and the fort at 16th-century Hatta Heritage Village. Take a cruise through Dubai on a traditional dhow, too, admiring this prosperous city from the water.
After four days in Dubai, you’ll travel to Oman to stay at Six Senses Zighy Bay. This is a remote resort, beautifully designed using traditional techniques and materials – natural stone, warm wood – sitting within a bay backed by mountains. You reach the hotel by speedboat or 4x4 unless you’re feeling very James Bond, in which case you can paraglide down from the mountains! Relaxing is easy once here – there is even a private butler service. This is a serene place, with a wonderful spa that uses Omani natural ingredients, and there’s also the chance to hike, cycle or climb in the mountains, snorkel, or take a cookery course.
