After doing a five day safari on the Tanzanian mainland we then spent six nights in this gorgeous oasis. The grounds and lay out of the hotel complex are stunning. The pool area and beach are breath taking. The all inclusive food in the main restaurant offers sufficient choice and variety, the African night is good fun. All the staff...

We returned a few weeks ago from a fantastic holiday. All in all it was an amazing stay with exceptional people. Special thanks to Mr. Gabor who satisfied our needs and to the workers of the Beach Bar, Sara and Baraka.

We have spent 10 wonderful days in this beautiful resort with our friends. This is a perfect place to relax for those who are not neccesarily active. The good services offered by the hotel and the friendly staff made us feel perfect in this holiday. Definitely one of the best resorts where we have ever stayed.

We had a room with ocean view, which literally had an amazing view over the beach, ocean and swimmingpool. The resort grounds were lush, green and beautifully maintained by the staff. The gym was sufficiently equiped for cardio training, dumbells and other equipment for strength. There was a wide variety of food with plenty of salads, fresh fruits and local...

This hotel gets most things right. The refurbished suites (try 331) is wonderful, though I understand many are still being upgraded. The grounds are well cared for, the beach is wonderful, the service is warm and friendly, while the walk up to the north is pretty. The jetty is a wonderful place to relax. The food was average over lunchtimes...

We spent 10 days at this hotel as part of our honeymoon following a safari. It is an absolute paradise with glorious gardens and beautiful beaches. The beach and the pool are together with a bar and plenty of attentive waiters. There is a bar on a pier over the sea which is pretty cool and water sports are available....

We spent 10 nights here following a safari in Tanzania. We loved the immaculate gardens, the beach and the unusual bar on the pier. Initially in a villa room, we were quickly upgraded when our air conditioning was erratic. Both types of room were comfortable but the view was better from the deluxe room. The site is cleverly laid out...

Dear ColdAvis Thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences. I am delighted you kicked back and relaxed and enjoyed your time with us. I am sorry that the big game fishing was not successful, usually there is a good range of fish available but a little luck is needed to have a successful day. Hopefully next time they will bite!...
