Went here for a city break to get away from the New Years craziness and absolutely loved it! Amazing place where you feel you are in the middle of a jungle safari yet your relaxing on the beach with more water sports than you can imagine! It might be a bit pricey but I guess that’s the cost of looking after a safari enclosure. The hotel was beautiful with incredible restaurants staff and service as you would expect from this name. Will definately go again soon!

Beautiful stay, hotel, rooms, service. Activities were nice but unfortunately going in public holiday time was too crowded for activity reservation. Activity centre staff couldn't help with suggestions for our free time, however later on when I found "Mr. Mostafa", I was able to book for another suitable family activity, thanks to him! "Mr. Mark" our wildlife tour guide had very nice information to know about the animals and the island we learned a lot from him.

The most friendliest staff / service experience of my life. The whole facility is modern and their process are designed in a way that you don't suffer at any point. check in was super quick , we got upgraded with early check in and late check out. we usually don't like food in such places but the food was also super good and we got the flavors we were looking in a very 5 star setting which is usually rare. for activity we took nature drive and I must say I have been to safaris around the globe and this one was very nice experience , we got to see giraffes, cheetahs, and whole different varieties of antelopes . It was a perfect relaxing weekend getaway I was looking for. cost vs service is also justified upto some extent.

If you live in UAE and just want to have a getaway without getting on a plane and all that airport stress, this is the place to go to. The drive from Dubai is approximately 3.5-4 hours but it’s worth it. Spend at least 3 nights to get the most out of the time there and experience the wildlife you never thought would be possible in UAE. It’s simply amazing.
