This is the best resort in Ngapali. It is away from any other hotels or resorts in the busier end of Ngapali. The beach stretches for miles, we walked along this everyday and you would be lucky to come across another guest or a local. We have been to many beach resorts in the world, but this one is the...

A little oasis of beauty and calm. I stayed in one half of a duplex which was just the right size for one person. During my three nights no other guests occupied the other room and that may account for the quiet. Stepping out into the pretty gardens that backed up to the beach and the sea was delightful. I...

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They picked us up at the airport and brought us to the hotel down a unpaved dirt road. At this point I wasn't sure what to think. But from the minute we got to the hotel all I could say is wow!...

I agree with all of the other views praising this place. We found the staff to be very friendly and extra helpful. Checked our flight which had been rescheduled and gave us late checkout. Like having your own beach - fantastic. The only thing which spoils it was the excessively expensive wine. Two other luxury hotels we stayed in in...

We stayed here for three nights at the end of a tour. It was bliss, heavenly we couldn't believe how nice it was. Plenty of space, fantastic rooms, pool and restaurant were fantastic. Don't take notice of negative reviews they have plenty of clients returning every year. Location is its main pull with a lovely beach with peach and tranquility.
