Reaching the beautiful Six Senses Zighy Bay (www.sixsenses.com; from £530) on OMAN’s Musandam Peninsula from the capital city of Muscat normally involves an eight-hour drive. Now ‘‘luxury boat transfer’’ is a new, travel-deeper option, thanks to Ocean Blue International, a small local company whose charmingly upcycled, three‑cabin dhow MY Ibra calls at the Daymaniyat Islands on an overnight journey through the Gulf of Oman, with gourmet lunch and supper served alfresco on deck. Book through Cazenove + Loyd (www.cazloyd.com; from £3,218 per person).
