My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Al Sahel, and we loved every minute! Every single staff member we encountered was friendly, polite, helpful, knowledgable, and accommodating.

Nice place for relaxation and family and great services, I like the atmosphere you feel the real calmness, right place for meditation and also for children to enjoy the nature and to see the animals close by.

Out-of-this-world experience! Magical environment, food and hospitality. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay very special. Loved the plunge pool. It was lovely being surrounded by animals. We will definitely go back!
