This place is amazing!
The hotel is set in the most wonderful location, you can expect to have the Indian Ocean lapping your feet, the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. The staff will cater for your every need, be sure to do the 7am yoga sessions with Sam, it’ll set you up for the day, follow that with an ice cold madafu with breakfast at the Nomad bar. You must also indulge in the Sands Signature massage; 2 hours of pure bliss (as if you needed anymore!) a body scrub with followed by a massage, you will float out of the spa! The food is delicious both for lunch and dinner, we were lucky enough to be there for the full moon in March and captured some amazing photos. We are looking to return in January 2023…something tells me this could be my ‘go to place’ for some R&R and to escape the UK winter. Thank you to all the team at Sands at Nomad. You made our break so special and we can’t wait to return.
