The hotel

This tropical paradise is a haven of tranquillity with beautiful, white sandy beaches and a wealth of amenities - the perfect ingredients for idyllic island living. As you would expect, there are water sports in abundance, as well as plenty of land sports, including tennis and volleyball. Beach and overwater villas are furnished with contemporary touches and come well-equipped with the latest amenities, and private pools with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. If you feel in need of pampering — after all, you are on holiday — head for the hotel’s spa, set across a bridge on Crusoe’s Island. Indulge in the latest massage and beauty treatments, feeling refreshed and ready to face the world again. With so many activities on offer, you’re sure to build up an appetite, but with a choice of excellent restaurants to tempt you, there’s no worries on that front! Get your day off to a great start at Raha, serving a hearty breakfast buffet with a slice of paradise views. There’s also light bites and signature serves at Eats & Beats and the freshest of seafood at Alifaan.

Nice view with spacious room and private infinity pool. Romantic place for honeymoon. Staff are helpful and friendly. There is shuttle service from everywhere that we didn't need to walk in the hot sun. Can be improved if alcoholic drinks can be provided in the room for AI package.
