Five stars! Loved it ”

This hotel is beautiful. It is boutique with every detail thought of. The manager greeted us when we arrived. The staff were very attentive. It is perfectly located on a beautiful part of the beach. The food was excellent, although more catered to people wanting European food. I would have preferred more variety but everything else was PERFECT. I saw the other hotels along the beach and was so glad I booked this one. It is intimate, relaxing and so relaxing. Can’t wait to go back.

The room was beautiful, spacious and modern with very tasteful decor with spectacular views of the garden and the beach. It is so peaceful and quiet with a variety of seating areas to relax in. Extensive choice of drinks with attentive staff. The spa was refreshing and extremely well appointed.

Upscale facility right on the beach. Very spacious rooms with lots of natural light. You get your own water bottle to use at the beach. Very friendly staff. Much appreciated service.

Relaxing weekend by the beach”

Art of Sand is a well designed beach hotel with beautiful, spacious, light rooms. The staff are wonderfully friendly and efficient. The hotel has a more informal feel than its sister hotel, Sandoway Resort, a short walk along the beach. The restaurant menu at Art of Sand is not as exhaustive as Sandoway Resort but the food is very nice. The reception will make a dinner booking for you at Sandoway Resort (a ten minute beach walk) if you eat early.

Amazing brand new resort in a pristine beach!”

We enjoyed our time at the resort. Brand new facilities, great attention to detail from staff. Location was great in the north part of Ngapali, right in front of the beach. Restaurant was delicious! The room did not had a TV but who needs one when is time for relaxation. Our kids enjoy playing at the beach and running around at the garden.

Nice new resort with great staff”

The resort is very new and located on the south end of the beach where the sand is excellent and there are no rocks. The facilities will be excellent, but as of February 2018 the theatre is not yet open to watch news or movies (no in-room TVs). When this is complete, the resort will be fantastic for families or couples looking for a quiet, laid back experience.

nice new resort, not cheap though”

resort is very new and the rooms are great and spacious. personally we would prefer a resort a little bit more north since there most beach restaurants and bars are located. We prefer to go eating and drinking there, since all resorts ask ridicolous prices for food and drinks. Local you can eat for 40% of the price that resorts ask you. Also we prefer the beach a bit more north.

Positive Bewertungen nicht nachvollziehbar”

Die Situation am Strand ist äußerst enttäuschend, und deshalb ist man ja eigentlich am Ngapali Beach. Der Strand ist grundsätzlich sehr schön, und je nach Tide auch sehr breit, allerdings sind Liegen und Schirme in zwei Reihen auf sehr engem Raum aufgestellt, so dass man keinerlei Privatsphäre hat und jedes Wort der “Nachbarn” mit anhören muss. Schlimmer wie an der Adria !!! ImVergleich zu anderen Resort in der Umgebung wie z. B. Sandoway, Mermaid Resort etc. sehr schlechtes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis!!!! Insgesamt sind ca 60 Zimmer auf unglaublich wenig qm verteilt, wirkt sehr beengt, wenngleich der Garten sehr hübsch und gepflegt ist und der Strandabschnitt ist sehr schmal. Die Zimmer sind o.k. Allerdings muss man wissen, dass WC und Dusche nach oben offen sind und man alle Geräusche hören kann. Zusammenfassend würde ich sofort das Hotel wechseln, wenn nicht schon drei Wochen vor Urlaubsantritt der gesamte Betrag abgebucht wurde.
