What to say? After many stays at this island I’m still in love with this place. And everytime, it’s better than the last time. Great facilities, great rooms, everything is perfect. The staff is a big part of these successful vacations especially Ali the manager is very kind and nice and Amman is the best. Wish to live there

This place is simply magical, been there twice and can’t get enough , the villa , the private pool , the access to the beach everything is lovely . You feel like you are at home , the villa is so large and practical. It’s a different rule of experience but totally worth every moment of it. Staff are experienced and lovely .

Worst experience, not worth the time and moneys. We waited for more than 35 mints in very crowded, small and hot room just for the boat After that, we we reached to the island, we waited again for 25 mints just to a golf car to take us to the room. I reserved this luxury resort to celebrate my husband birthday, unfortunately it turned to be unfortunate experience. Who ever think to reserve, think twice, it is not as luxury as it looks

Response from Zaya Nurai, General Manager at Zaya Nurai Island
Responded 4 weeks ago
Dear 513asmaa, Thank you very much for taking the time and posting your comments on TripAdvisor. We regret that we did not have the opportunity to address your concerns during your stay. I would like to thank you for bringing these matters to my attention. We hold our service to a high standard, and when we fall short of expectations, we work with extra focus on our service areas that need improvement. Due to the current situation, we make sure that all of our Villas and buggies are properly sanitised for the new guests and sometimes especially during weekend and public holidays which was the case, it can take longer than expected. We did our best to provide you with the late check out for the next day, but I believe it was not sufficient to compensate for your inconveniences. Please contact us whenever you seem convenient and we all at Zaya Nurai hope that you will give us an opportunity to welcome you back to our hotel and restore your faith in the excellent services that we are famous for. Best regards, Adib Moukheiber General Manager
