Life in Dar Diwani


In Arabic, the word “Diwan” means the room of the house which is always open to guests. 

Dar Diwani is a new exclusive bed and breakfast accommodation in Ilha.  Everything there looks smooth, natural and luxurious. 

With only three bedrooms en-suite with king-sized canopi beds (ac, fan and free wifi), as well as large internal palm garden with swimming-pool and sunset roof-top, Dar Diwani fells more like a stylish home than a hotel.  It is in an magnificent 400-year old building, set on a quiet street corner, right to the beach.  There is also a separate studio that can be rented upon request.

The house (which has a fully equipped top chef kitchen with expert wine cooler) can also be rented in exclusivity.  USD 300/500 All rates B&B

This is the kind of place you find in interior decorating magazines.  The feeling is however very easy-going and peaceful.
