A spectacular view of the Indian Ocean from almost anywhere on the resort makes this all-inclusive property a wonderful choice for those guests looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Fantastic swimming pools, a beautiful beach with clear, turquoise waters and amazing sunsets all add to the ambiance! The rooms are large, approximately 80 square metres for Superior Rooms and 100 square metres for Suites. A spacious bathroom with a large bathtub, separate shower and double sinks provide luxurious comfort. All rooms include a quiet split-unit air conditioner, TV, fridge, coffee and tea making facilities, a safe and a terrace from which to enjoy the view. The warm, friendly staff invite you to enjoy meals in the buffet restaurant with a varied selection of local and international dishes or a traditional pizza oven near the beach offers a quick snack while you relax by the pool.

Our Superior Deluxe rooms were newly built in 2016 and our Ocean Suites completely renovated in 2017. Our Superior rooms have been refreshed but not renovated. If you prefer to pay for the upgrade to a Superior Deluxe or Ocean Suite, please contact our reservations team. I'm not allowed to post their email here but it can be found on our website. We look forward to welcoming you!
