Six Senses Zighy Bay is inviting you to get into its beds as part of the Sleep with Six Senses programme, which will be available in selected villas from November 2016. In keeping with the property's philosophy of well-being, sleep is an important part of one's overall health and happiness, and in today's modern world is being severely impacted by technology, stress and restlessness.
The new sleep programme, which has been developed with internationally renowned sleep doctor Michael J. Breus Ph.D, has a dedicated Sleep with Six Senses ambassador who sends an online questionnaire concerning the relationship the guest has with sleep prior to the guest's arrival. Based on this information, each Sleep Ambassador provides their guests with tools and tips on how to improve the quality of sleep.
Sleep is recognised as the most important contributor to an individual's health. With a number of factors that go unexamined and contribute to restless nights, such as poor-quality mattresses and bed linens, sound pollution and stressful days, Six Senses Zighy Bay pioneers through another wellness concern in the region. Experts offer advice as to the ideal amount of sleep, with a rough consensus recommending that at least one third of a person's life should be dedicated to this most pleasurable of pastimes.
Sleep Ambassadors are individuals who have excelled in a training programme created by a passionate group of leaders at Six Senses under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Breus. They fine-tune the guest's room prior to arrival to ensure all preferences are noted and prepare the guest's bedroom each evening to ensure optimum sleep conditions.
Six Senses Zighy Bay places fundamental items in the guest room's setup that have been carefully selected and tested over a period of 24 months by a team of Six Senses experts. Handmade mattresses by Naturalmat are made from 100-percent natural materials sourced from sustainable resources and are fully biodegradable. They are complemented by Hanse organic pillows and duvets which feature natural breathing and cooling zones to ensure the perfect temperature during sleep.
Building upon these quality basics, guests who wish to learn more about improving their quality of sleep can upgrade their sleep experience. The package includes a Sleep Bag, Valley Forge moisture-wicking linens and a Withings Aura Sleep Tracker/App. The results from the sleep app will be reviewed with a Six Senses Integrated Wellness Practitioner during a 30-minute personal consultation. Based on the results, the wellness practitioner may recommend a personalised programme of spa treatments and activities to help improve sleep.
The Sleep Bag contains a selection of specially developed and sourced sleep aids including bamboo fibre pyjamas, eye mask, ear plugs, nose strips, nasal neti pot and jasmine sleep spritzer. There is the choice of selected bathroom amenities from The Organic Pharmacy and the Six Senses Little Book of Wellness, which includes a worry journal section to jot down thoughts that may keep guests up at night. The bag also includes a thumb drive loaded with Six Senses videos providing a wealth of sleep suggestions and professional guidance for better sleep featuring Dr. Breus.
Ahead of departure each guest is provided with sleep tips and details on how to purchase any of the products they used during their stay to prolong their quest for a good night's rest when home.
The 30-minute personal assessment with a Six Senses Integrated Wellness Practitioner is complimentary with the Sleep With Six Senses package upgrade which is priced at USD 165 or AED 606 for one guest, and USD 225 or AED 827 per couple for the first night, and USD 30 or AED 111 per guest per night from the second night onward.
