I thought I had already written my review to Next Paradise but I am happy to type it out again as this place is my favourite!
My partner and I stayed here in February of this year for about 9 nights in a villa (we extended as it was so nice!). We fell in love with the place the moment we drove into the place and we had not booked as we had decided to check out two places first. After being greeted by Marina and Daniella and their warm welcomes, together with the beautiful setting and viewing of the rooms and facilities, we had to stay. Stuart is very nice and they all make you feel welcome and take pride in their work.
At any one point, you never feel like the place is packed which is awesome. There is a fabulous pool in the centre and the beach is at your door step! You can swim out there but make sure the tide is in as you'll have to walk out a bit. The beach is quiet with a few local dhow boat operators around and people to sell you things but it's all licensed.
This place is relaxing, intimate and boutique so if you want to party all night long, go elsewhere please!
The staff are all excellent! They are friendly and helpful without being intrusive, a fine balance many resort/hotels need to learn. The food was great, breakfast is a great choice, especially the chocolate croissants! The dinner is plentiful and a menu is place up each afternoon (3-4 courses). We ordered small thing for lunch as you are so full from breakfast and need space for dinner! But depends what your appetite is like!
There are bikes for you to use if you want to go exploring, the nearby village is humble and small so no real shops but that's why you head to Stonetown before/after. There are books/games and the staff can organise you tours if need be. We had a massage from the lady who works there and it was great as it was located in a private area near the beach!
Looking back now, this still is my favourite place to date, the ambiance, relaxation, service, value are something special making it a unique experience....
