I'm torn here, because one's natural instinct when you find a place such as this is to keep it to yourself in case the world finds out! So it's all superlatives; around a dozen restaurants and bars, all worth visiting, some stunning - e.g. the Piano Lounge with Dicky's world-class cocktails, Capri Court, the Italian spot, and Asia, which serves...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights last month. Although we had a nice time, the hotel was very quiet (maybe as it was so hot, 40 degrees plus every day). The pool area was lovely but lacked any atmosphere, only a handful of people there every day. it just seemed soul less. The deluxe room was fantastic,...

Visited now for the second time with my family. Everybody enjoyed. Great location, Great hotel. Kids liked the whole area, the lazy river. A lot of activities offered by the hotel. And the greatest experience was the big turtle just coming to the beach.

This hotel is part of a 3 hotel resort. This hotel is secluded from the other two, and all for great cause. From the moment you walk in, you feel that you are submerged in utter luxury ( not to mention the breath taking scenery and private beach). The hotel's service and staff is also great. Al Husn's pool doesn't...
