Two times lucky for Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay at World Travel Awards
The green and luxurious Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay in Oman was the proud receiver of two prestigious awards at the World Travel Awards currently being held in Dubai.
Praising the quality of Oman holidays they offer, the Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay in Oman has just walked away with the coveted titles of ‘Middle East’s Leading Luxury Beach Resort’ and ‘Oman’s Leading Resort’ at the Grand Final of the World Travel Awards – also known as the equivalent to the ’Oscars’ in the travel industry.
Amongst 183,000 professionals in the travel and tourism industry who were voted and reviewed in a worldwide survey conducted by the World Travel Awards, Zighy Bay revealed to be immensely proud to have received such two awards, adding prestige to the Oman holidays they offer, especially in a market of such tough competition.
The award was received by Zighy Bay representatives during a presentation ceremony held in Dubai coinciding with the start of the Arabian Travel Market – one of the world’s largest travel fairs. The ‘Middle East’s Leading Luxury Beach Resort’ award was received on behalf of Zighy Bay by Her Excellency Dr. Rajiha Bint Abdul Ameer Bin Ali, Minister of Tourism for the Sultanate of Oman. The second award granted for being ‘Oman’s Leading Resort’ was accepted by Wayne Lunt, Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay’s Resort Manager. One of Zighy Bay’s owners (Sheikh Sultan Al Qassim) and Rochelle Kilgariff, General Manager of Zighy Bay were also present at the ceremony and were quick to express their joy at winning such a prestigious recognition.
Since its opening in November 2008, Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay has been repeatedly recognised in some of the travel industry’s most respected arenas, receiving ongoing praise for the quality of luxury Oman holidays they offer, particularly after winning ‘The World’s Leading New Resort’ at the World Travel Awards held last year.
Upon receiving the ‘Middle East’s Leading Luxury Beach Resort’ trophy, Her Excellency Dr Rajiha expressed her satisfaction that Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay had once again been recognised for its unique location and excellent quality services. As the Middle East’s leading luxury beach resort, Zighy Bay is also an environmentally friendly hotel that contributes to and supports the efforts of the country’s Ministry of Tourism to develop Oman holidays as the new ‘must-go’ luxury holiday destination in the Middle East.
On her part, Rochelle Kilgariff, General Manager of Zighy Bay expressed her delight over the travel industry's recognition of the efforts the resort made in keeping up the excellence of its services, its unrivalled five star accommodation, outstanding customer service and luxurious setting.
“Winning these awards means so much to all of us here at Zighy Bay and is a real tribute to the resort’s wonderful, accommodating and professional team. We are extremely proud of our achievements to date and will ensure that we continue to fulfill our ongoing commitment to our guests. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone at the resort for all their hard work, commitment and dedication in making Zighy Bay the best of the best.” – she proudly declared praising the works of everyone at the resort.
Offering indigenous village style accommodation, the Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay lies beautifully positioned amidst spectacular mountains on one side and a beautiful sandy beach on the other.
