This place is awesome and it's awesomeness is because of Freda and her team. She made my stay like I was her personal guest and so did the rest of the staff. The beach is beautiful and the food delicious.

We loved Ocean Village Club. We were a family of four with two teenage children. It has a relaxing vibe, lovely restaurant and bar and the staff are helpful and friendly. The Manager Freda makes a wonderful host, and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed the comfy beach beds and the view over the incredible white sandy beach and...

This place is all about management. Freda, the general manager, tried to give a personal touch to everything in Ocean Village. And she did it perfectly. I wrote her a few months before our holiday and she was so kind and helpful. From the warm greeting on arrival to the welcoming cocktail drinks in our first evening, nothing was too...

A great place to relax and read on the wonderful white sand on an amazingly comfy sunbed with squashy cushions! Very pretty location with large bedrooms and bathrooms and huge four poster bed! Buffet breakfast and dinner but a la carte or all inclusive available. Delightful staff - would return!

I would definitely recommend staying at this Hotel. My partner and I vacationed over new years/January for around 10 days. The rooms are large, modern/elegant, super cozy and very clean. The pool is very nice and spotless. The beach facilites + bar area are super for relaxing (loved the long chairs and pillows by the beach). The location of the...

Directly on the beach (during high tide, the waves literally touch the walls of the complex) it is a very relaxing, peaceful and family friendly place. The rooms are spacious, clean and really nicely decorated. The staff and the manager (a KC lady) are very helpful and friendly and make their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible....

The owner maintains a unique tradition of hospitality in a breath taking location. I will spare the superlatives on the whiteness, depth, softness of the beach and the emerald waters of the Indian Ocean. The quality of accommodation is just outstanding. The cleanest of its category. A quiet place that makes you regenerate and feel new. The personel treats you...

I was a bit confused when I discovered our 'beach front' room was in the furthest block away from the beach but the room was fantastic being clean and spacious for a family of three. The welcome was very friendly and, whilst we didn't mind coming all the way down to the beach front for check-in, it was quite odd...

Was surprised that I had never really heard of this place before coming here. Spent 4 nights in a Deluxe room with Sea View on a room-only booking, which I try to get whenever I can as it gives the flexibility of chossing what to eat, where and when. Can't praise this place enough. Everything about it was great; location...
