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.

Can't praise this place enough. Everything about it was great; location...

Very friendly staff, great service and warmly greeted on arrival. Very nice room overlooking the sea as I think they all do. Very nice surroundings. Food was ok but could have been better for a four star! Disappointed we couldn't use the swimming pool after 6pm.

Everything about this hotel is a little touch of paradise. Airconditioned rooms. A private beach next to the beach proper. Great buffet style food and help organising excursions. A must visit place in the sun.
