Six Senses Zighy Bay is now offering Grow With Six Senses, a program for children that offers an array of activities intended to help them grow socially, spiritually, environmentally, physically, emotionally and intellectually.
Children will learn through interacting with animals and plants at Six Senses Zighy Bay’s farm and organic garden. For instance, children can collect their own breakfast food at the farm in Dibba, which houses baby goats, camels, chickens, cows and more. Here, they also learn about how the resort cares for these animals; kids will also see and learn about the different kinds of produce growing at the farm.
Among the pathways of the resort, guests can head to the organic garden and learn about the different herbs and their benefits. Kids will see how to reclaim the seeds of different fruits and vegetables, how to sow those seeds and how to care for plants. Budding chefs can also learn how to prepare their own healthy food, and to understand the correct meaning of organic and how to shop for the right food for them and the environment.
An interactive session can be arranged at Earth Lab, where kids and parents can learn about recycling and upcycling—they can even then take their experiments and handiwork back home as mementos. Kids can explore how to make soap at home with different herbs and botanicals and what each ingredient can do for them. They can also go to the Alchemy Bar and create fun products that are organic and sustainable to use on themselves, such as scrubs and masks. Also at the spa, kids can learn a few animal yoga poses.
Swimmers can enjoy exploring the underwater residents when snorkeling in the calm Gulf of Oman and find out a whole lot more with the resident marine biologist. Kids will learn about ocean clean-ups and how harmful human waste can be to marine life, especially the sea turtles and manta rays in the gulf. For those a bit more adventurous, the family can even experience diving and get up close and personal with some of the underwater fauna of the region.
