The property spreads over 10 acres of mature tropical gardens and coconut palms, and our facilities are of a world class standard.

300 air conditioned rooms and 2 Luxury suites will ensure a comfortable stay at all times. 2 free-form swimming pools, probably the largest in Eastern Africa, add a unique feeling of space and majesty to our Resort!

The environment is of utmost importance to us and every effort is made to ensure that our beautiful coastal scenery remains unspoilt for years to come! Our commitment to excellence is absolute!

Average room size is 26 square metres. There are tiled ceramic floors throughout the room and bathroom. Every room is fitted with a mosquito net that covers the entire double bed to ensure a peaceful night! Each room is fitted with a combination safe and direct dial telephone for your convenience. The bathroom is well designed with a very spacious shower. All our rooms overlook the swimming pools and gardens, there is however a possibility of pre-booking one of our Ocean Front rooms - please enquire. Inter-connecting rooms are available on various floors. Balconies and verandas are very spacious and fitted with Swahili easy chairs. Children may be accommodated on ground floor rooms for your safety.
