Dhow Inn is the best hotel I have ever visited. The rooms, the gardens and the pools are really well designed and planned. Everything is super clean. I really loved that the rooms are entirely white, the baths/ toilets are separated and tidy, the big mosquito net surrounding the bed are really charming. Each room has its small porch with... More

Had a great stay at Dhow Inn! Beautiful resort with 20 bungalows right at the beach. Rooms are very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The half board contains a nice breakfast buffet with a chef that prepares eggs and pancakes and a 4 course menu, which daily changes, in the evening. Especially liked the barbecue! Very friendly staff!!

The rooms are arranged around one of three pools. The room is simple but nice, clean and comfortable. There is a nice porch outside the room with a chaise longue, a table and a couple of chairs - a nice place to chill out. The Friday night Swahili buffet was very tasty, and served outdoors under the stars. Breakfast is... More

We didn't stay in the Dhow Inn, but we had very nice dinners there. The staff is friendly and helpful, the place looks clean and well organized and the food is great (we loved the Passion Caipirinha)!

We had an amazing week at Dhow Inn. The rooms are very cosy, elegant and clean. The place looks luxury style and every few rooms (I think it was 10 rooms) you have a private swimming pool where the atmosphere is always very quite and relaxed. We booked half board, dinners are very nice and with good variety between fish... More
