Guests can enjoy crystal clear infinity pools, a range of delicious dining options, and water sports in the lagoon. Take relaxation to the next level, by indulging in a spa treatment at one of 22 over-water pavilions, before watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand.

We spent 5 days at this property and it totally exceeded all our expectations. My kids (7yrs and 3yrs) fell in love with the property and all the activities that they were able to do. We stayed at the Grand Beach villa with an opening into the lagoon (Safe for the kids) and were on the Diamond All inclusive plan (Totally recommend it if you want to have a peace of mind and are in the mood to maximize the activities). The design of the resort is amazing with views of the beach/ocean from almost every part. Each restaurant and bar has been tastefully designed and you feel a part of the ocean/beach everywhere you go. All the staff were really courteous and especially warm to the kids. If you have kids then would definitely recommend that you give this a try. Coming to activities, we did a lot of snorkeling (Although there arent many fish around, since it was a first time experience for us, we loved it). In the all inclusive package we could rent the snorkeling equipment for free. We had 1 hour of water sports (non-motorized) included so we did kayaking and paddle boarding. There are so many spots across the resort that you can just sit/laze around and be blown away with the beauty! It is decently big and there is a buggy to get you around to different places. The rooms were neatly done and the landscaping all around is perfect. Special mention to Sulthana at the Dream bar who made every visit of ours special and our guide 'int' who took us on the dolphin sunset cruise and helped us spot some of them! Right from the welcome to the farewell at the resort, it was a truly memorable vacation! Read less

Rani and Ami were amazing massage therapists. We had a couples massage upon arrival and it was so good, we scheduled a second set of massages for the day before we left. Highly recommend the 90 minute massage with either of these two.

I cannot say enough beautiful things about the resort, the staff and the over water villa! The service was unmatched! Everyone was genuinely kind at heart! Hansal in the dive center was incredible!!! Hansal took me on a dive, and a mermaid experience I never knew existed! Hansal was absolutely amazing! So we’re Sarah, Eman and Yaaus. Khalid in the Sunset restaurant was my absolute my favorite! I dined in his section for every meal because of his kindness, his beautiful discussion and impeccable service. Bashir, the room attendant cleaned my villa so impeccably each day, and even made a bubble and flower bath for me on two occasions. Adel was very sweet and accommodating during check in and check out and checked in with me after I arrived to make sure all was well! I cannot say enough about this team! I will definitely be back!
