You can view our additional images of the property in our company Facebook album here.
The atmosphere is very informal with the guests & staff often spending time to get to know each other, chatting, enjoying a devious game of Uno, or arranging to enjoy an excursion together, taking advantage of reduced group rates.
Talking of excursions, they, like all the properties on the island offer the same excursions and water sports. Either using their own staff & equipment or booking with a fellow islander on your behalf.
The rates for these tend to be the same, regardless of who you book with. It's a small island where everyone works together. Having said this, depending on how many excursions and or water sports you want to do during your stay, there's always room for negotiation while on the island or a package can be added to your booking prior to arrival,
The nearest beach is around the corner, only several meters away from the property, where you can glide into the warm crystal clear waters or take time out under the complimentary parasols & loungers. The staff are happy to bring your food & beverages down there for you.
The property is only 876 meters from Sunset Beach & 600 meters from the 3rd beach. As you can probably guess from the distances to the various beaches, it takes no more than 10/15 minutes to stroll from one end to the other, so you are never more than a few minutes from anything the island has to offer.
To transfer to Dhiffushi you would normally be able to use the slow MTCC Ferry, Altec Mee Express or Sigma Dhiffushi fast public speedboat transfers but due to current health restrictions only Altec Mee Express and the hotels own vessel are operating. We will of course update you when the others recommence. The transfer takes approximately 40 minutes.
Due to COVID-19 & limited availability you must book your transfer with the Hotel or Altec no less than 72 hours prior to arrival at the airport or departure from Dhiffushi. Failure to do so, may result in your not being able to board any of the vessels. Where you have made a last minute holiday booking, resulting in you arriving in less than 72 hours and you have not booked a transfer with the property, we cannot guarantee a convenient transfer for you. In these circumstances you should immediately contact either your property or Altec to enquire if they can provide a transfer on the day of your arrival at the airport.

When the hotel vessels have a sufficient number of guests transferring at the same time they may provide the transfer at a reduced rate if the guests are happy to share the vessel. Particularly during these unique times, the various properties are doing their best to help with the transferring of guests, regardless of where they are staying.
Regardless of which transfer option you choose, you will not need to pay separately for your transfers as these will be included in your property booking. Where you are transferring by means of another property's vessel they will arrange for their transfer service to be added to your property booking. Where transferring with Altec you can either add the fare to your property booking or pay them when boarding the vessel in cash.
Upon arrival and having exited the secure area of the airport you will be greeted by a transfer representative from either the hotel or Altec vessel in the arrivals hall, whereby you will be escorted to the vessel in the airport harbour which is only a few meters away.
Be advised, many vessels do not have toilet facilities, so be sure to do what is necessary prior to boarding.
