Zighy Bay

Hi all finally booked the honeymoon and depart for Zighy Bay in just over a month. We are wondering what to expect price wise for excursions / dinner / extras such as the spa and also what currency or methods of payment they accept. Is there a shop / supermarket there to purchase snacks too?

Local currency is the Omani Rial which you may see written as RO or OMR.

The sub currency is the Baisa or Baiza and there are 1,000 to a Rial.

Hotel will likely take (certainly MasterCard & Visa - which are both big in the region) all major credit cards. Some places in the region are not that keen on Amex.

Hi Pawpan

We are off to Zighy Bay in just under 3 weeks - Cant wait!

If you have a look at the six sences web site you will find zighy bay, you will find a full section on the spa treatments with costs, and also they have a section called LIFE, which is for excursions etc, again they have prices on them.

If you email the hotel with any specifics they will get back to you.

I am sure one of the TA members that have been before will be able to help you with your other requests.

Congratulations on your forth coming wedding and I hope you have a great time in Zighy Bay!

There is a small gift shop but it does not sell snacks.

LIFE excursions are very expensive although they are trying to bring the prices down.

They accept credit cards as payment.

Have a look at their website.

You will have a great time.

Afraid everything is pretty expensive there and there is nowhere else to go, so you just have to forget about it. You will not regret it though - it is quite superb.
