Sea food was not fresh and less efforts made to make it a wow dish..just coz its low season. Ice cubes not made from mineral water hence leads to infection. Work on your steak

Very inconsiderate as we had to go back to pick a group of 'important' guests who were late! The staff n management had no remorse and said we should be understanding ! This is after delaying us for 1 hour n there after making us return back .. Ruined a perfect evening !!

For the most Romantic cruise, it happens only on board the Tamarind Dhow. Everything is perfect for the evening cruise. A truly memorable experience.
