Six Senses Zighy Bay Introduces Eat With Six Senses

A holistic approach for getaways offering well-being and sustainability

Oman, 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 it's 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 resort's 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 Bay's own reverse osmosis plant produces top quality still and sparkling mineralized water, which is provided to guests in reusable glass bottles.

Benefit from Eat With Six Senses

The food staying at Six Senses Zighy Bay is thoughtfully prepared with quality ingredients, keeping the guest's 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. The holistic wellness experience aims to be inclusive of their realistic daily routine for tangible results in their lifestyle.

Eat With Six Senses is also having a positive outcome for the resort's hosts; the philosophy has been introduced into host dining venue, Sense In The Village. It is creating an internal culture of health and wellness through healthier meal choices as well as providing knowledge to support the well-being of hosts and their families.

Eat With Six Senses will have a positive effect on guests, hosts and the environment.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
