    Wonderful Family Short Vacation which is relaxing & rejuvinating on this Pradise Island”
    The Excellent : 1. Excellent hospitality 2. Special individual care by Room Division Manager & hotel staff. 3. Extra care by F&B team as we are vegetarians. 4. Breakfast buffet was excellent and balanced mix of veg & non-veg menu. 5. Very well maintained rooms & property. 6. Choice of restaurants superb. 7. Outdoor tours, especially Wildlife Safari is probably the only of its kind in GCC. 8. The SPA is very special, the treatments are simply superb. 9. The ferry/boat transfer from mainland to the island is an experience by itself. Need improvement: 10. Indoor games for youth during inclement weather should be introduced, eg. Sqash, Badminton, Table-tennis, Mini golf, basketball.

    Anantara Desert Islands”
    This resort is on a lovely island and it is very enjoyable to go there for a short stay, particularly if you have young children around 6,7,8. . The only criticism was that staff were constantly trying to sell you things - gala dinners - activities etc - under the guise of being helpful. It was too much information all at once. Better descriptions on the website would help people understand what is on offer. Additionally staff were very helpful but sometimes overly so - for example taking your plate with breakfast on it from you and carrying it to your table, leaving you to walk behind empty handed. Personally I am able to carry a plate. But overall it is a lovely place and worth visiting.

    Nice and quiet retreat”
    I was travelling with two teenagers, one 10 year old and my husband. It took around three hours to get to the jetty and another 25 minute boat ride. We stayed there for two nights. It's a fantastic piece of property, an entire island dedicated to the resort. The staff was accommodating. The shuttle that took as around was always available. We had an excellent safari experience, and the tea and pastries served at the end of the safari was a nice touch. The breakfast choices were a bit limited, it was exactly the same on day 1 and day 2 of our stay. A little variety would have been nice. But it was good nonetheless. Very nice experience for me and my family.

    Excellent get away from Dubai”
    We traveled just for the weekend from Dubai. The drive was totally worth it because we felt we stayed there for a whole week : so many activities to do, the Italian restaurant is just so yummie, the beach and the pool so nice. A jungle touch in the Middle East, very unique experience! Do not miss it.
