Be sure to make a reservation at Sense on the Edge; set 293m above the resort on a mountaintop, the views from this high-altitude restaurant are almost as impressive as its world-class flavours.

Take in as much relaxation or activity as you choose at this majestic resort. Embark on a luxury Sunset Cruise or exhilarating Rock Climbing adventure, before hiking the many trails of Zighy Bay. In the evening, watch a classic film under a canopy of stars at Zighy Bay's outdoor cinema.
