Six Senses Zighy Bay Introduces Eat With Six Senses

A holistic approach for getaways offering well-being and sustainability

Musandam, Oman. March 01, 2018 -

A pioneer in holistic wellness, sustainability and ecotourism, Six Senses Zighy Bay invites guests to indulge in delectable food without having to derail their health goals with the new Eat With Six Senses philosophy introduced across all food and beverage outlets. Thanks to a nearby farm and an onsite garden supplying the resort with organic and fresh produce, guests are guaranteed to have halal and nutritious meals throughout their stay.

Eat With Six Senses represents a pillar of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness philosophy and a fresh approach to food and drink. It is based on the guiding principles of natural ingredients, local and sustainable practices, and a less is more approach, helping guests to reconnect with food safe in the knowledge that itís good for them, and good for the world around them.

Use natural ingredients

Six Senses Zighy Bay implements a farm-to-table approach to food preparation, focusing on balanced meals made with whole, fresh elements. The resortís gardener and chefs work together to create hearty and healthy menus full of flavor, while unapologetically avoiding flavor enhancers, lectins, lactose, gluten and sugar. Instead, chefs select ingredients and preparation methods that promote a healthy gut flora to offer better digestion and absorption of nutrients while boosting the immune system.

Be local and sustainable

Six Senses Zighy Bay supports local fishermen from neighboring Zighy village by purchasing their fresh harvested fish and lobster on selected days for the catch-of-the-day options. The resort commits to source food locally whenever possible and comply with its uncompromising health standards.

Moreover, the resort has been dealing with suppliers who share their ethical standards in farming and cattle raising. Through growing their own organic produce on the grounds of the resort, raising livestock and developing a free-range chicken farm, they are able to inform guests about the importance of sustainability with a live example, yet in a fun way.

Reduce carbon footprint

As the resort aims to reduce packaging and the carbon footprint of importing, they have eliminated the use of branded drinking water in plastic bottles. Six Senses Zighy Bayís own reverse osmosis plant produces top quality still and sparkling mineralized water, which is provided to guests in reusable glass bottles.

The food staying at Six Senses Zighy Bay is thoughtfully prepared with quality ingredients, keeping the guestís health and wellness in mind. Those looking to make a change in their lifestyle by adopting Eat With Six Senses in their daily routine, can sign up for the Integrated Wellness Program that is tailor-made based on a series of screening tests. Guests will also have the long-term support of Wellness Experts after they leave the resort.

Eat With Six Senses is also having a positive outcome for the resortís hosts; the philosophy has been introduced into host dining venue, Sense In The Village.

Guest Service: Empowering People

Excellent customer service is vitally important in all businesses but it is especially important for hotels where customer service is the lifeblood of the business. Outstanding customer service is essential in creating new customers, retaining existing customers, and cultivating referrals for future customers. Employees who meet and exceed guest expectations are critical to a hotel's success, and it begins with the hiring process. It is imperative for HR personnel to screen for and hire people who inherently possess customer-friendly traits - empathy, warmth and conscientiousness - which allow them to serve guests naturally and authentically. Trait-based hiring means considering more than just a candidate's technical skills and background; it means looking for and selecting employees who naturally desire to take care of people, who derive satisfaction and pleasure from fulfilling guests' needs, and who don't consider customer service to be a chore. Without the presence of these specific traits and attributes, it is difficult for an employee to provide genuine hospitality. Once that kind of employee has been hired, it is necessary to empower them. Some forward-thinking hotels empower their employees to proactively fix customer problems without having to wait for management approval. This employee empowerment—the permission to be creative, and even having the authority to spend money on a customer's behalf - is a resourceful way to resolve guest problems quickly and efficiently. When management places their faith in an employee's good judgment, it inspires a sense of trust and provides a sense of higher purpose beyond a simple paycheck. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
