All sea facing rooms feature an enormous 4 poster king size carved bed draped in romantic mosquito netting with rich sea scrape colours. High lofty ceilings still boast their original dark teak ceiling beams from which air conditioning and ceiling fans keep these beautiful rooms cool and comfortable. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with twin basins, baths, a large marble shower and a stunning range of guest amenities.
Frenchs style double doors let in the sea breeze and lead to a wide elegant veranda with comfy teak plantation chairs and soft cushions so that you can relax and contemplate Island life. Our sea facing rooms all afford beautiful views of the sea at high tide and an ever changing vista throughout the day as the tide changes, and traditional dhows drift out to sea. At low tide walk out onto the sand amongst the flamingos and storks and search for pieces of ancient Chinese porcelain said to be washed up from sunken wrecks.
