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.

Wow, we spent our honeymoon here (10 nights with a safari in between). And I have to say.... Staff: A key factor for us, so polite and accommodating. Will do their best to ensure you are at your maximum comfort level. Can't praise them enough. All we did was give the staff the courtesy they deserved and they treated us... More

Visited the resort from June 27th - July 1st. I'm a student that just graduated and travel here for relax. It's a nice place, sun shine, beautiful beach, white sand, swimming pool... I like the food here, but the speed of free wifi is not good. In short it is a good hotel
