No private beach.....10 min slightly steep walk......But hotel provides Free pickup and drop In tuk tuk (autorick). 2. Those wanting to live in Arabian view... More

Hi guys. Its a really nice hotel to stay. Rooms are spacious. I opted for a room with sea view. Balconies are also huge. Hotel staff were nice. Ambiance was fantastic. Sea beach is just 200 meters away. They have a free beach drop service from 9am to 6pm. Food is a bit expensive, but nice. Swimming pool is good.... More

I spent a night at this property in July 2015 with friends. A warm welcome, cordial staff, spacious rooms and an well maintained pool are the highlights. It's just 5mins walk from the beach. A small and compact property with good facilities. Since it was off-season it was sparsely occupied. Hence, there was no buffet dinner. Ala carte is a... More

housekeeping services were much below standard, nothing happened on a single call, atleast two reminders were required to get the things done. Dont rely on the front desk for wake up call, nearly missed my flight. Do not expect packed b'fst to be delivered when you leave the hotel early mrng
