A manager came to greet us and ask if we were comfortable during breakfast, which was quite nice.The hotel is beautiful in itself, the room almost twice the size of all other hotels I've been to in Mombasa/Diani area. My daughter little... More

Boutique hotel with a north-african feel and architecture, amazing rooms, an unreal swimming pool (7 pools actually interconnected), the beach is a quite rocky so disappointing, but didn't feel the need to leave the hotel. Food could do with a few more veg options, but otherwise very delicious. Would def come back!

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

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!
