No need to say how wonderful a stay at a Six Senses is. At Zighy Bay it isn't different, the pool villas are spacious and nicely furnished, the whole hotel's atmosphere is due to relaxation.
That is the little problem for families with small children: kids club isn't really helpful, we wanted to go diving and the kids club was still closed in the morning prior to our boat departure time. We always had to hire a nanny for that.
We stayed for 10 marvelous days in October 2011 with our little son, 3 years old. Staff was helpful and organized baby-sitting for the occasions we needed (dinner alone sometimes and diving). The babysitters weren't specialized nannies but waitresses that had their day off . For that price and in that hotel, we expected trained staff.
Another weak point for families: you can't buy anything for children at the hotel shop, no biscuits or diapers or any sweets, etc... so you must bring your own 'snacks' if you don't want to order a meal all the time.
