We were fortunate to have experienced this hotel resort on its opening week. Everything felt so fresh and brand new; it almost felt like you didn’t want to touch anything without disturbing the peace.
It is a very luxurious hotel resort in a fantastic location, so close to the Arabian sea and a place you can truly unwind and enjoy the serenity of peace and relaxation.
