The founder of this gem Mohamed Tharwat felt the strong appealing energy of the place after he visited the island for healing purposes; falling in love with the place and its geography. After spending half an hour on the island, he was persistent on building a hotel on this rock.. Yes, that’s it.

Even though it was impossible to build something on this rock, he insisted on building a hotel with only 23 suites! However, you can only get to this beautiful place by boat since its located on an island.
