A Boat ( Dhow) festival was going on when we visited. Interesting to see traditional living style recreated in small camps as well as variety of Dhows. Good place to spend an evening .

“open mind's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

It was a great experience during TEDxSummit in April 2012, there is a great place to organize daily conferences and team buildings and evening banquets. Just near the sea it gives you a great feeling of second Home.

“Still needs to improvise on lots.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Its Ok.
Its only lively when any events are hosted here. There are cultural display of events and activities here. But it located in a very narrow access area and the roads leading to & from this place is jammed. We have spent hours waiting to move a meter. The roads are crammed and authorities are tied up managing security without much attention given to illegal parking of cars that make it difficult for fellow commuters to move.
