The facility offers beautiful dining areas with fresh seafood and baked products served straight from the kitchens. Enjoy the rooftop bar at night to witness the gorgeous African skies. The beach bar offers almost 360-degree ocean views, faces the setting sun, and from here you can see the moon rise over the water as the dolphins and fish return to rest and giant Comorian fruit bats leave the island for nocturnal foraging. The facilities provide a truly relaxing atmosphere, and if the views aren't enough, order up a traditional massage to help you unwind.
