This is a luxurious resort set on a beautiful island.
The setting of the resort is unique. It is located right on a beautiful golden sandy beach facing the sea. The design has an ancient traditional feel and all the pillars and the doors are carved with ornamental designs.
There is plenty of space within the resort for privacy and relaxation. The terrace bar has an amazing view and it’s the perfect place to meet other guests and enjoy the sunset whilst having a drink.
The interior of the rooms is gorgeous and you will definitely want to take pictures of it. The villas provide ample space and modern comfort all combined with an ancient charm.
The staff could not be any better and they really made my stay special. From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed and well looked after. They were genuinely friendly, polite, never intrusive and always willing to make my time there as pleasant as possible. One of the best I have come across in my travels.
The food was excellent! The cuisine is traditional combined with a modern twist. The ingredients were very fresh (fish was superb!) and the presentation was always to a high standard.
There are lots of fun activities on offer in the resort to suit all tastes. I personally enjoyed the fishing trip in the dhow sailing boat as well as the popular excursions around the island by mountain bike with Katana.
I have travelled extensively and this is one of the best and most unique resorts I have stayed in. The setting is gorgeous and I had everything I needed to relax and unwind. This, along with the warm hospitality, great food and plenty of fun activities, means that I'm already looking forward to going back very soon!
