SIX SENSES ZIGHY BAY, OMAN
There's no shortage of high-end hotels in the Middle East, but you won't find that many that are secluded, luxurious bolt-holes hidden in a peaceful bay behind an imposing red mountain. Zighy Bay is the kind of place where you take your shoes off at the door and pitter patter around barefoot for the rest of your stay - that is, unless you have some of-the-moment sandals you want to show off. If you do decide to slip on a sandal then make it a feather-adorned pair from Aquazzura. A highlight of your stay at this impossibly calm resort will be watching the changing colours of the mountains as the sun sets and rises - a special effect that matches that eye-catching dip-dye Missoni bikini you packed.
