This is the most beautiful location to vacation at. The hotel is stunning! The pool is amazing and is a great place to just hang out and relax all day. The food was great and the staff was so kind. My ideal day consisted of sitting by the pool all day, walking the beach, and having my meals poolside. It... More

Special thanks to Arafa (bar woman who looked after us every night with a big smile all the time, you definitely need a promotion), Michael, Juma, Phoebe, Richard from... More

The place has a truly refreshing rustic feel to it making it very airy and serene. The terraced infinity pools are just breathtaking. Views of the clear blue water from the rooms doesn't get better. I really enjoyed spending my anniversary with the resort. Special Thanks to Julias and Michel for having arranged a brilliant stay for me and my... More

Felt like an Arabian princess when I walked in here. Great views, great hospitality, phenomenal inter-locking pools and some wonderful relaxation areas. There just seems to be few entertainment options but I guess if you here to relax, thats exactly what you get!

Fabulous hotel. Staff go the extra mile to accommodate your needs and make you feel special. Rooms are spacious and well apportioned. Will definitely come back. Worth every cent. Only problem was bad wi-fi connection in rooms. Hope its been fixed now.

My husband and I live in the UK and so all our wedding arrangements were done via email with the food and beverage manager - Griffin. Griffin was amazing to work with and gave... More

Like other reviewers, I think the hotel itself is simply amazing. The rooms are huge, airy, beautifully designed (the bathrooms alone are unlike any I've ever seen at any hotel, and I've stayed in many) and very comfortable. The swimming pool is a multi-level work of art, and no written description does it justice. A lovely feature is the numerous... More
