Pool Restaurant & Bar
Maisha has a casually upbeat setting with an easy African vibe, and is the perfect venue for enjoying the ocean views. Enjoy its unique fusion cuisine that mixes Southern European and Indian Ocean cuisine throughout the day, and, upon reservation, typical Middle Eastern and Omani food for dinner under the pool’s pergola.
Main Restaurant & Bar
The Upendo Restaurant overlooks the entire resort and serves international cuisine with an African/Indian Ocean twist. The restaurant’s laid-back Zanzibari style and live cooking shows make it the ideal place for breakfast and dinner, whilst its separate deck is ideal for private events or larger dinner groups.
