Very nice hotel settled in a great environment with almost perfect facilities. The all inclusive service was nice, the hotel staff was kind and helpful, the food provided at the restaurant was good and various, the bedroom was large with a extra king size bed (2,40 m wide!!!) and the cocktails served at the bar were delicious. Anyway, the beach... More

On arrival down the long drive through the private gardens we were greeted by a smiling receptionist - albeit at 11:30 at night - who had kindly organised for an evening meal to be prepared and sent to our room after a long days travel. The marbled foyer opens out into further beautiful gardens and the pool, with clusters of... More

The hotel provides very good facilities and offers a great variety of food, entertainment and activities; the staff in all departments (service, housekeeping, reception, beach, spa, ...) is very friendly; when a guest shows a little bit of interest in the culture and language everybody goes out of their way. A true vacation to relax and take a distance from... More

Beautiful Beach Resort and Spa, very quite and clean. Staff and Management is awesome. We spend 3 nights at the Resort and our experience was wonderful. i had a spa treatment which was amazing and relaxing.. Amina the spa therapist was excellent. Our goal was to relax and not to do any stressful activity, and we accomplished that.

Great relaxing holiday. Great friendly staff especially Aziza in the restaurant. Highly recommend the SPA for a chill out hour or two. Nothing much more to sit overlooking the blue sea drinking cocktails most of the day.. The Hotel is next to Sultan Sands which is also under the same ownership and one could take meals at each property.

A very friendly atmosphere with a smiling staff doing their utmost to make it a pleasant stay for us. Beautiful gardens and a nice beach as well as a good pool. Spacy rooms with verandas facing the Indian Ocean.
