We have just returned from a week staying at this hotel after a week's safari in Tanzania. We booked a superior room to celebrate the occasion of our 25th wedding anniversary and we're not disappointed. The hotel was so peaceful and relaxing. We visited Nungwi beach for a day but it was much busier and touristy whereas this hotel has... More

The managers are knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming. The... More

My group of 20 pax enjoyed the friendly staff, excellent service and good food. The rooms were beautifully decorated with an upmarket African-Arabic fusion and were kept extremely clean. The size of the rooms and the height of the ceilings lends the look to an upmarket feel. Definitely great value for your money.

The resort staff are extremely friendly, accommodating and caring. The accommodation was very spacious, well appointed and well cleaned and maintained. Would definitely recommend this resort for a relaxing getaway. The hotel and gardens are beautifully appointed and blend well into its natural surroundings.

We chose this hotel because of the diving, which lived up to our expectations. However, we were concerned about being trapped in an all inclusive package with poor food. We needn't have worried as the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive.
