Having been to most of the in-spots around the world I decided to try somewhere new. I didn't quite know what to expect as the pictures are never the same as reality but I was most surprised to see that they actually are. The place is beautiful! Set in a quiet part of the island with well appointed air-conditioned bungalows dotted around the landscape, it felt as if everything was close-by but also that private space wasn't sacrificed at all. The whole atmosphere was relaxed with management staff being attentive but not intrusive as some other establishments are. The local staff are pleasant and obliging. The food was excellent too - and I like the fact that there was only one buffet offered during our 5 night stay - it's nice to be served when on holiday. We did snorkelling (wonderful marine life) and went on a sunset dhow-cruise with the obligatory bottle of champagne (highly recommended)! I managed to catch some of the footie on the wide-screen TV in a separate TV room (there are no phones or televisions in the rooms - brilliant!) while my girlfriend had a full-body massage on the beach. I cannot recommend this place enough if all you want to do is step out of life for a few days!
