Omani dhow cruise experience

by posted in NEWS

For an unforgettable vacation experience, set sail in our ‘Dhahab’, an Omani dhow cruiser handcrafted in 2013 to reflect the sailing vessels famously used in the region by Arabic voyagers of yesteryear. Inspired by the word Dhahab, which means ‘gold’ in Arabic, the dhow’s homely splendor and unique design is coupled with all the modern comforts. From bow to stern, this beautifully carved cruiser is furnished in the artisan style reminiscent of the villa décor at Six Senses Zighy Bay.

Comfortable for a cruise of four to six, Dhahab is able to host guests in a spacious king bed cabin and two twin bed cabins on the lower ground deck. The king bed cabin offers a large bathroom equipped with oval bathtub, picturesque moonlight windows, spacious shower room, twin vanities, writing desk and a lounging sofa in a reading corner that could even be set-up for an additional guest.

Taking in the most scenic views of Musandam’s rugged landscape, you’ll cruise along the bays of Haffa, Sanat, Lima, Khor Kabahl and Khor Habaleen. The cerulean blue waters of the coves along the Musandam peninsula are likened to the fjords of Norway and the Galapagos islands, offering unsurpassed peace along a magnificent coastline of dramatic stark cliffs created by the Hajar Mountains towering over quaint fishing villages.

Whether relaxing on the upper decks, enjoying a movie in the private lounge, sun bathing, swimming, kayaking or snorkeling, the crew will ensure a seamless experience throughout your odyssey. If you still can’t get enough of the sea, you can book a bespoke diving experience … or come ashore for a well-earned wellness massage after your day of adventure.
