This was the second visit within a month for us and we had a fabulous experience that we cant forget! We needed a long break so badly after a tough time during the lockdown with the kids. Variety of restaurants with KAYTO being my best choice and access to many pools with Infinity pool being my first choice. The ambiance was unforgettable at night and the staff were friendly and helped us enjoy every moments. An easy access to Souq Al Madina which brought a delight to our stay. Many thanks to Vanessa and Rebacca for the unforgettable stay. Read less
