I think i will go right ahead and start with the rooms! The thought put in the designs, totally impeccable! the Swahili inspired intricate designs on the furniture are quite impressive, I felt like taking the bed home with me! if only it could fit into my suitcase! (sigh). They were gracious enough to show me around,the other rooms were equally impressive but the royal suite, it's out of this world beautiful!
When it came to the meals, the chef went out of his way to impress, He takes the trophy for the pan seared Tuna. Which i learnt was a daily catch during the season i was there, i made a point of going fishing, to see if i could also contribute to daily the supply of Tuna, but i caught a barracuda instead, wasn't disappointed, it was also very tasty.
The pool bar is exquisite! I had my fair share of madafu while i was there. The Majlis staff, a very friendly lot, very hospitable.Thank you all, you made my stay there memorable! On my last night, a candle lit dinner was set up on the beach, that was simply magical! talking of the beach, its one of the cleanest beach i have ever seen,pristine! and no beach boys either.
I also had a fabulous time in the water, If you ever go there, make sure their water sports cabin is the first place you check out.
Beautiful resort, Wonderful team! Pristine beach,Fantastic food! and everything you could ask for while on holiday. I will definitely come back!
