Nice small hotel, 8 min leisure walk from the cliff/beach (have a flash light after sunset). Hotel has backup generator to provide power during frequent power outages. Well maintained,... More

Just spent another 15 night stay at the Deshadan, we have been coming for several years now and will be back again next year. This small friendly hotel is a real joy, set just 5 mins walk back from the cliff top in a quiet area. Big thanks to everyone.

We stayed here for 5 nights in January for the second time in 3 years and would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you to all the staff especially the restaurant staff for making us again so welcome. Felt very sad to leave but I am sure we will return.

We stayed two nights at the Deshadan Cliff & Beach Resort. I have to be honest, I thought the hotel would be at the beach, judging by the name but it was 5 minutes away from the cliff closest to the beach.
