When it comes to long-haul family holidays, we completely understand the difficulties in choosing the perfect destination, region and hotel to suit the whole family. Happy children equal happy Mums and Dads, and with many parents within the Turquoise team, we often travel with children in mind. One destination which ticks all the boxes for our resident Mums and Dads is Oman. Access is easy with direct flights from London… in a little over 7 hours you could be en route to a sun kissed beach on the shores of Muscat or winding through the stunning panorama’s of the Hajar Mountains.

Six Senses Zighy Bay

Six Senses Zighy Bay sits in the glorious seclusion of the Musandam Peninsula in Oman. Unlike the other properties in our Oman portfolio, Zighy Bay is best accessed from Dubai International Airport (under seven hour flight from the UK) making it an ideal mid haul destination for families.

Zighy Pool Villa (Large)

Enjoy the breath-taking views over the peninsula as your chauffeur-driven car approaches Zighy Bay where your friendly G.E.M is waiting for you. Your G.E.M (a Guests Experience Maker; a modern day butler) really makes the holiday and they are the heart and soul of the resort. Even the lead in villa category, the Pool Villa, is spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children. Children sleep on the oversized daybeds and Mummy & Daddy can relax on the idyllic terrace with a private pool when it’s bed time.

The private pool is generous in size and offers a shallow end for children and there are lots shady corners for everyone to enjoy during the hot midday sun. When it comes to restaurants, all family meal times are catered for either at Spice Market, Summer House or Shua Shack. We highly recommend the Arabian Buffet Night with its delicious array of local flavours (children even have their own cute section!). And the cute resident goats surely put a smile on everyone’s face when found wandering around the resort!

I started my travel career at a company which organised backpacking trips for students, before joining the wonderful world of Turquoise Holidays. I caught the travel bug early in life and have spent a total of 18 months travelling around the world. The highlights of which have been the Trans-Siberian Express, the Angkor Wat temples and the Inca Trail. I specialise in the Indian Ocean, South Pacific and Asia; where I have spent over 5 months backpacking through Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cambodia and Vietnam. I am really excited to share my experiences and bring peoples dream holidays to life.
