The hotel is amazingly beautiful! The architecture and the greenery around the bungalows is just stunning. We also really enjoyed the delicious food and the super friendly service. One thing that we missed was a proper beach. Unfortunately, the hotel is located directly at a reef. Therefore, there is only a small beach which is underwater during high tide. Entering the sea is only possible from the jetty. Also there is no dive shop attached to the hotel. However, they cooperate with a shop from the next village. A dive trip to Mnemba Island, including 2 dives was 150 USD per person. Much more than I had expected.
