Wash your feet in one of the many giant clam shells after walking through the daily raked sand of our grounds, smelling the scent of the flowers, listening to the local childrens' schools chanting and singing, the distant braying of the local donkeys and ruminate on the call to prayer from the town's mosques. It all becomes quite magical in this quiet sanctuary of a space. Then relax with a chai tea, our chef's ginger infusion or a glass of wine or beer with some delicious home made snack or tempting coconut cake.
