I stayed at The Majlis for only one night, as it was at the end of a business trip.
There is nothing about it that I can fault at all.
You arrive by boat, having sped past the gorgeously large houses and villas of Shela on the mainland, and jump out onto the warm sand. The entrance is impressive to say the least - a huge stone structure standing on the beach, and you immediately feel as if you are entering somewhere special.
Everything about the Majlis says 5*. The pools are sparkling, clean and beautiful. The rooms are large, cool and elegant. The staff are friendly and attentitive. The food in the restaurant is wonderful - and the home made chocolate ice cream in particular is to die for. The bar overlooking the ocean is the perfect sundowner spot.
What more can I say ?
