No words or photos can describe this beautiful place. I could feel the unique and lovely culture of this place since I entered the hotel. My amazing journey started with arrival and check in, and from there I was welcomed by Khagen who is very supportive, friendly, and professional, throughout my stay. I had check in with Jeffrey, who I cannot thank enough for making my stay more memorable and beautiful than I could ever imagine. Jeffrey is always professional, happy and smile to every guest making sure everyone feel welcomed, unique and special. I also had an opportunity to meet Amir who is a very friendly and professional duty manager. The way Amir speaks and welcomes guests is outstanding. Regarding restaraunts, I was so lucky and had the chance to see most restaurants, which have unique culture and can appeal to everyone. The food was out of this world. Service exceeded my expectations. All staff is friendly and the person that will stay in my memory forever is Kapil. He is always pleasant, professional and friendly. Kapil was able to advise on everything and made me feel unique like I belong to this place. It's very hard to meet people like him. Also, spa service is exceptional. Such a beautifil place, and employees in spa are very friendly and supportive. I got the best services in my entire life. Also, the room in which I was checked in was lovely and very clean and so was the first floor, in which the room was located and all the public areas were very clean. Girls who worked on the first floor are very helpful, friendly and always made sure that the expectations are met. The place is beautiful, and there are so many facilities available to guests. The swimming pool is amazing and so is the beach and bars. There's not a single thing I would change. I have never thought that I will ever experience this. It was the best time of my life. I am sure that I will be back there, and I can recommend this place to everyone who wants to experience Heaven on Earth. Let culture of this hotel stay forever, as while the hotel itself is very beautiful, the experience was created by friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated employees who made my stay amazing. Big thank you from Sandra and mum Mariola :) Read less

We’ve just returned from a one week, half board stay and we didn’t want to leave. Our friends recommended this hotel and it exceeded our expectations. Prior to arrival we upgraded to a lagoon access room which was amazing. It was great to walk out of our room, onto the terrace, down a couple of steps and we were into the lagoon. It felt like our own pool. Our room was spacious and luxurious. There was everything you could possibly need. A turn down service was a lovely touch each evening. The buffet breakfast was amazing, something for everyone and more. On an evening we either ate in the buffet or at one of their other restaurants - Mekong for Asian or Bushman’s for Australian. Both were covered in half board but if you wanted something else on the menu there was a supplement. We had our pick of sunbeds on the beach when we weren’t out exploring. We usually started our evenings at the happy hour in the Lotus Lounge where we were always greeted warmly and looked after extremely well by Christina or Zin. Yes drinks are expensive in Dubai, even soft drinks, but comparable with other places around the world. We had a fab holiday here and most definitely will return Read less
