Shasha is the hub of entertainment, be it pool parties, yoga or cinema under the stars, and make sure you grab a spot here in time for the sunset views over the ocean.

I am a Dimond Member, came from Dubai. After 2 hours of tiring, drive when reach hotel at 12:15 they said that rooms are not ready and we have to wait. The cleaning takes 2 hours more so we have to sit in a lousy lounge without any food. STRICTLY NOT RECOMMEND FOR FAMILY

Ms. Menna provided outstanding service when I called her to inquire about a missing item that was left at the hotel after I checked out. Not only did she assist me in finding a missing item, but she also ensured its safe return. Her attentiveness and professionalism are truly commendable. Thank you, Ms. Menna, for going above and beyond!
