Our favourite rooms
Even the lowest-category Superior abodes scream ‘VIP’: the taupe-toned superior, lounge and deluxe rooms open onto terraces bigger than the size of their indoor space, some backing onto a communal water feature, others onto the stunning main pool with terraces hosting outdoor baths. The four categories of suite, promise even more privacy: we especially like the six Desert Modernism-evoking Pool Villas with their sprawling gardens and heated swimming pools cradled by huge harmony ponds – that’s right, they have two pools each.
The elegant, heated 320sq m outdoor pool may seem too beautiful to believe you’re invited to splash around in it. But you are. And the large day beds dotted under the stunning stone arches are there to remind guests that they’re here to relax.
Luxury kaftans and silk sarongs.

Holidays here will feel like honeymoons for all the family. Parents of active children who want to run around with less care for the fantastic tranquility, may want to leave the hotel to those with babies or teens. The charge for extra beds is €100.
