The comfortable, family-friendly holiday oasis has 434 rooms and provides the ideal setting for a relaxing holiday, whatever the time of year. The five-star hotel is part of Movenpick Hotels & Resorts’ (MH&R) expansion strategy and adds to its already considerable Middle East portfolio.

Other amenities to be available to guests by the end of 2006 include a casino, a spa and leisure area, a modern fitness centre, a water sports and diving centre under professional management, three tennis courts, a volleyball court and a children’s club. An 18-hole golf course is also due to open soon some 20 km from the resort. Two conference rooms with seating for up to 200 participants are complemented by a business centre.
