We discovered this hotel 2 years ago when staying at another resort and knew that it was the place for us. We were not disappointed during our 8 day stay. Our cottage was wonderful, peaceful and cool; the food excellent; the staff welcoming and attentive. There is excellent wifi connectivity if needed but happily no television - it's a place to unwind, rediscover the joys of reading, listen to music, chat to other guests and staff, become obsessed with the Swahili game Bao and watch the constantly changing sea and sky. All kinds of tours can be arranged and there is an excellent spa but the greatest pleasure for us was just to quietly soak up the tranquility in such beautiful surroundings.
