go there before sunset, enjoy a dip in the warm water well at the entrance of the garden.
then go and enjoy the sunset, it is definitely one of the best sunsets I have ever seen!

Order something to drink and enjoy a nice chat with "Omran" the garden's owner beside the fire he always keeps going.

I would definitely visit this place again!

Supposedly this was one of the places where a brilliant sunset experience could be had - and although Fatna's Pool is also there - this comes second place to the sunset experience. Nobody was in the pool bathing and although I managed a dip in most of the pools - not sure I could be tempted to get in this one - definitely a bit on the brown and murky side. Bubbles could be seen rising to the surface - but who knows where, or what is on the bottom!

The sunset experience was a bit of a let down - maybe it was just a bit of a bad night for it though! A few chairs and tables were available and a small cafe serves drinks - but bearing in mind that it can get quite crowded with people watching the sunset, there really aren't enough places to sit.

The sunset is viewed over a salt water lake - so it does have potential to make for good pictures if the skies should oblige.

Note that there are some fairly whopping ants and mosquito's lurking in the area though - so some kind of repellent may be necessary if you are susceptible!
