We had a few drinks here as we sat on cushions on a balcony with panoramic views over the City and desert. The drinks were fine, but the real attraction here are the views!

We spend every evening sitting in alibaba dinning hall with Aku, our new Indian friend. The food was nice and tasty. The atmosphere take us back to old time and decoration was fabulous. ACU was a great chat and had fun knowing village stories. Everything was good.

This one is an absolute delight. The place is utterly charming and colorful. The view is absolutely breathtaking! The service is a bit slow and the food id pretty average, but the staff and the ambiance totally makes up for it.
