In recent years, Oman has skyrocketed in popularity among experiential travelers looking for “new” destinations. The landscapes alone—rugged desert mountains emerging from the turquoise sea—are worth the flight. And for a cool experience while in Oman, check out the “DJ Dispensary Retreat” at Six Senses Zighy Bay. Music lovers can learn spinning secrets from pro DJs like Matty Wainright, Brendon P and Stephen Day in a killer beachside setting during this week-long extravaganza.
The first such retreat just concluded (check out the pix on Facebook), but there’s another one scheduled for December 9, 2013. Hands-on lessons are complemented by activities like sunset cocktail cruises, hot rock massages, and daily sunset sessions. The six-night event concludes with a mix-off between DJs.
Six Senses isn't the only hotel to target amateur DJs. The W Verbier just ran an online competition to find its new resident DJ.
The Six Senses Zighy Bay has gorgeous rooms, a world-class spa, and a mountaintop restaurant. Another reason we love this resort? A guest arrival service to rival any red carpet treatment worldwide: paragliding down to the resort from a nearby cliff. For more information, visit www.sixsenses.com/resorts/zighy-bay/destination.
