"Eat With Six Senses" at Six Senses Zighy Bay: A Holistic Approach for Getaways Offering Well-being & Sustainability by 30Seconds Travel
A pioneer in holistic wellness, sustainability and ecotourism, Six Senses Zighy Bay invites guests to indulge in delectable food without having to derail their health goals with the new "Eat With Six Senses" philosophy introduced across all food and beverage outlets. Thanks to a nearby farm and an onsite garden supplying the resort with organic and fresh produce, guests are guaranteed to have halal and nutritious meals throughout their stay.
"Eat With Six Senses" represents a pillar of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness philosophy and a fresh approach to food and drink. It is based on the guiding principles of natural ingredients, local and sustainable practices, and a less is more approach, helping guests to reconnect with food safe in the knowledge that it’s good for them, and good for the world around them.
- Use natural ingredients: Six Senses Zighy Bay implements a farm-to-table approach to food preparation, focusing on balanced meals made with whole, fresh elements. The resort’s gardener and chefs work together to create hearty and healthy menus full of flavor, while unapologetically avoiding flavor enhancers, lectins, lactose, gluten and sugar. Instead, chefs select ingredients and preparation methods that promote a healthy gut flora to offer better digestion and absorption of nutrients while boosting the immune system.
- Be local and sustainable: Six Senses Zighy Bay supports local fishermen from neighboring Zighy village by purchasing their fresh harvested fish and lobster on selected days for the catch-of-the-day options. The resort commits to source food locally whenever possible and comply with its uncompromising health standards. Moreover, the resort has been dealing with suppliers who share their ethical standards in farming and cattle raising. Through growing their own organic produce on the grounds of the resort, raising livestock and developing a free-range chicken farm, they are able to inform guests about the importance of sustainability with a live example, yet in a fun way.
- Reduce carbon footprint: As the resort aims to reduce packaging and the carbon footprint of importing, they have eliminated the use of branded drinking water in plastic bottles. Six Senses Zighy Bay’s own reverse osmosis plant produces top quality still and sparkling mineralized water, which is provided to guests in reusable glass bottles.
- Benefit from "Eat With Six Senses": The food staying at Six Senses Zighy Bay is thoughtfully prepared with quality ingredients, keeping the guest’s health and wellness in mind. Those looking to make a change in their lifestyle by adopting "Eat With Six Senses" in their daily routine, can sign up for the Integrated Wellness Program that is tailor-made based on a series of screening tests.
