Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman purchases fleet of eco-vehicles to transport guests

Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman has added a new fleet of eco-vehicles, which will transport guests to and from the airport and on excursions. The resort has purchased seven Nissan Pathfinder SV 4WD Hybrid vehicles.

As well as airport transfers to the luxury resort in Oman, the vehicles will also be used to take guests on a range of excursions and off-road trips in the region. These include trips to the town of Dibba, off-road excursions to the Sabatyn plateau where guests can soak up the views of the Hajar Mountains and transporting them to the resort’s own farm or the marina where they can take a cruise on the Dhahab yacht. The new hybrid fleet will also be used to take guests to the resort’s unique dining venue Sense on the Edge, which sits on the mountaintop above Zighy Bay.

Aaron McGrath, the General manager of Six Senses Zighy Bay, explained:

“Until now, we’ve been using vehicles from a partner over which we have no real control of their environmental credentials; something which is incredibly important to our sustainability initiatives. We reviewed the vehicles available in our market and concluded that the Pathfinder SV 4WD Hybrid would be best suited to Six Senses Zighy Bay”

McGrath added:

“We took into consideration the various uses we would have for the vehicles and what we’d be asking of them in terms of off-road and on-road capabilities, comfort requirements, and of course their ability to help us reduce our carbon footprint. With its 2.5l supercharged 4-cylinder petrol engine, combined with an electric motor, its fuel efficiency is rated as 24 percent better than a conventional mid-sized SUV, so we feel we’re on the right path with our choice.”

Six Senses Zighy Bay is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. The eco-resort boasts village-style accommodation that resembles traditional Musandam houses, and guests can enjoy views of the Hajar mountains to one side, and the pristine beach of Zighy Bay to the other. Each of the 82 pool villas offers private pools, patios, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, CD and DVD players, living areas, espresso machines, wireless internet, and open-plan bathrooms with indoor/outdoor showers.

During their stay, guests can indulge in a pampering treatment at the spa, work out at the modern fitness centre, or take a relaxing yoga or meditation class with a professional instructor. Dining options at the luxury resort include the hilltop restaurant Senses on the Edge where they can savour delicious international dishes and regional specialities whilst soaking up views of the Gulf of Oman, the Summer House with its light refreshments and ice creams, the Shua Shack with Bedouin-style dining and dishes prepared in the underground oven. The Zighy Bar serves a range of classic, modern, local and organic mocktails and cocktails, while the Wine Cellar is perfect for private dining for small groups.
