A Daredevil Santa Will Land at the Six Senses Zighy Bay on Christmas
The world is officially in "Countdown to Christmas" mode and now, so are we. Every day until Christmas we'll be featuring a hotel that's in a holiday mood--whether it be with gigantic gingerbread houses, over-the-top Christmas decorations, thrilling lighting displays and best of all, Santa appearances. But of course, any hotel can assemble a fake tree, put on some lights and declare themselves "festive." Which is why we're looking at hotels that are really going ALL OUT. Know of a hotel that's super excited for Christmas? Let us know!
Just because you're in the middle of Zighy Bay in Oman, doesn't mean you can't see Santa. All you have to do is head to the Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort where Santa will make an appearance on Christmas Day, not by sleigh, but by paramotor over the Hajar Mountains from Dibba. Once he lands on the beach at the resort, where his Santarina is waiting for him, he will dole out small gifts and pose for photos. After Santa makes his rounds, he and Santarina will head over to the neighboring Smuggler's Bay...by inner tube of course.
Aside from this daredevil Santa appearance, the hotel is also offering additional holiday-themed activities this month including a "maintaining balance" workshop, holiday spa specials, a Christmas Eve cocktail reception and Omani Christmas Eve celebration. Go here for more info or to book. Rates start at $1,800 a night. We hope Santa is bringing you some extra cash!
