I arrived expecting a lot considering the high price but was disappointed. While the room was good, this is far from being a 5* star hotel. The food was pretty bland and very overpriced. The staff were nice but seemed rather cowed. Most disappointing was the pool --a deep slimy green colour that prevented anyone but the algae from enjoying...

In terms of privacy, AOR is incomparable to other resorts. It is like you own your private beach as there are not many people on the beach in front of AOR compared to other resorts. A resort that make you feel the ocean 100%. Kudos to the housekeeping for always keeping the rooms clean. The only thing for improvement is...

This is the best resort in Ngapali. It is away from any other hotels or resorts in the busier end of Ngapali.

A little oasis of beauty and calm. I stayed in one half of a duplex which was just the right size for one person. During my three nights no other guests occupied the other room and that may account for the quiet. Stepping out into the pretty gardens that backed up to the beach and the sea was delightful. I...

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They picked us up at the airport and brought us to the hotel down a unpaved dirt road. At this point I wasn't sure what to think. But from the minute we got to the hotel all I could say is wow!...

I agree with all of the other views praising this place. We found the staff to be very friendly and extra helpful. Checked our flight which had been rescheduled and gave us late checkout.
