Over at Jaunted they've been name-dropping Oman as the next big tourist destination, and now that we've found the Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay there's nothing stopping us hopping on an Oman-bound plane.

Zighy Bay doesn't official open until April, but the UK Times has had a look, and every TripAdvisor review so far has given it five stars. Apart from being a pretty unique resort in an exotic place, and brand new to boot, it also loves infinity pools with a large one and smaller villa infinity plunge pools. The large infinity pool is fed by a waterfall and overlooks the beach, too.

Zighy Bay is in a soft-opening phase already but will be fully completed in the next couple of months. If the infinity pools don't tempt you, perhaps the choice of arrival method will: you can come in by bus (boring), take a scenic 15-minute motorboat ride, or most exciting, paraglide into the resort in tandem with an expert paraglider. We figure they bring your luggage separately.

However, if you want to go we suggest going ASAP. The hotel is still offering promotional rates in April but they aren't cheap at $870 a night for pool villa. Although you do get that killer infinity pool as an amenity.
