We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms and food were excellent. The staff were very polite and well trained.The only negative thing we have to say was the reef that didn't permit one to swim out into the ocean. We would certainly go back there again.

Room Tip: We had rooms near the swimming pools and beach which was very handy

I stayed with my family (parents, brother and fiance') for four days in August. We found the hotel to be beautiful and well equipped. The staff were helpful and accommodating.

Upon arrival, Julius K was efficient in checking us in and giving us a brief overview of the hotel and facilities. We were offered cocktails and shown to our rooms.

The rooms were large and comfortable with AC, fans and mosquito nets. The bathroom was spacious and unlike other reviews had no issues with cold showers!

We were informed of afternoon tea between 4-5 pm which was free of charge to all residents. Three members of our group don't eat eggs and the chef was kind enough to offer eggless alternatives to the snacks already provided.

We also found the pools and pool bar to be lovely!

Overall, the service was very good and they went beyond their means to ensure that our stay was pleasant as well as ensuring our special requests were met and exceeded.

We look forward to visiting in the near future!

This hotel is just fantastic! The architecture is very swahili and the entire hotel is just absolutely beautiful...quite scenic. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this hotel for four days with some of my colleagues and we all loved it.

We were well received with a yummy cocktail and a cold towel, they had some tea and pastries ready for us, and the check in process was pretty smooth.

The rooms are just beautifully done and so spacious. No one complained of any noise outside their rooms.

The food was amazing, we especially loved the pizzas at the beach bar and the main restaurant also had good food.

The pools are beautiful and the poolside service was pretty good, towels were availed and the waiters were always on hand to refresh our cocktails..:-)

The spa was just perfect, I had the best massage.

The hotel is very conveniently located near quite a number of restaurants, beach bars, supermarkets, banks.

Check out was also pretty fast and no complaints on the bills.

All in all I would recommend this hotel, it may be a bit pricy but well worth it.

I had an amazingly fantastic stay. I will be back for another stay soon!

We had a company event at this place and I must say we were very pleasantly surprised. We were very impressed by the scenic beauty of this property and were even more impressed by the quality of service and friendliness the staff provided to our group.
The food was amazing, especially the seafood choices at dinner. At the breakfast buffet, the indian delicacies like chana bathura, potato wada, etc were so yum and well prepared, with a very friendly chef at the live kitchen.
They have a few options for team building activities. We tried the pool volleyball and darts. The staff member responsible for the activities was very friendly and was very helpful in setting up the events.
I tried the Spa and the Gym and was happy with the service I received at both these places.
The beach was a bit of a disappointment with the seaweeds covering most of the area.
I am definitely visiting this place very soon with my family. Don't want them to miss a place like this.

We stayed here for 4 days in November 2012. The resort had only just opened and as the owner said, "we are finding our way". The hotel is stunning, with a great beach bar and a brilliant swimming pool. We had a 'Suite' that just sheer luxury; needed a map to negotiate it! The facilities and staff were excellent. At the time of our stay, the restaurant had a lot to improve upon. In fairness, it was early days for the hotel. We are very familiar with Kenya as our Son lives in Mombasa.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but the suites are spectacular.
