We enjoyed our stay very much, the room is spacious and clean. The turndown service is done on a daily base and made our stay even more comfortable. The service and food was also very good. We enjoyed our stay a lot and will definitively be back.

I recently had the privilege of staying at the Arabella as part of the team managing weekend a corporate event. What a pleasure! My room was superb - spotless, spacious, well appointed and with a wonderful view towards the sea. The bathroom was large, well planned and clean and the amenities were of a very high standard.
The grounds are well kept. The pool area was very inviting and the walks around the propert were well maintained, pleasant and a wonderfully peaceful break from the rush of the event.
The restaurant was good, offering a wide selection of foods and the staff were absolutely fantastic and Faiza cooks the best pancakes I have ever sampled.
The front desk team and the bell b oys were smart, efficient and a credit to the resort.
Would I bring another business group to the Arabella? Most definitely.
Would I consider returning to the resort on holiday? Undoubtedly.

Lovely views, clean and comfortable rooms, great food. A wide variety of DSTV channels available. The conference venue and amenities were also excellent.

Then spa was also lovely, with knowledgeable therapists, although there was a bit of visible flaking paint/mould on the walls of the showers (which were apparently being attended to soon)..
