Once available to the hotel's business contacts only, the refurbished classic Dhahab, The Golden Dhow, can now be ridden by anyone who wishes to enjoy a traditional Omani cruise. A specialist team at Six Senses Zighy Bay – a private ocean-side resort in Oman – has updated the handcrafted vessel while retaining its vintage Arabic charms. While the design stays true to artisan arrangements, high-tech features abound too.


Its three cabins house up to six people and are replete with air-conditioned saloons, a cinema and an al-fresco dining area. And an on-board chef helps fine-tune your culinary skills via cooking classes. The two-night itineraries along the spectacular Musandam coast take in quaint coves and shoreline villages as part of the journey, with fishing and kayaking opportunities close by.
