Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
There are three choices for arrival at this resort in the Sultanate of Oman (opening in early 2008), set between the jagged Hajar Mountains and a secluded mile-long slice of the Persian Gulf. If the 10-minute boat ride or the overland jeep adventure through mountainous desert terrain doesn't jazz you, though, you can make a more dramatic entrance—by literally falling from the sky. Strapped tight into a tandem harness with a Six Senses pro, you'll descend some 2,000 feet on a paraglider—a visually dazzling 10-minute journey that does no harm to the environment. Once you land and check into one of 82 spacious pool villas, suites, and duplexes, hit the on-site spa to calm any post-glide nerves.
