This boutique hotel is remarkable for its uniqueness and comfort. A beautiful setting along the coast of the Arabian Sea, recently upgraded to 19 rooms with antique furnishings but modern convenience. The restaurant is top quality in food and service, with extremely attentive but non-intrusive staff.

The Eighth Bastion is a boutique hotel, with attractively decorated rooms. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food served is of very high quality. The area it is in seems quite safe, and is close to the beach. We felt comfortable walking out from it, although the beach attracts beggars and hawkers. The people are very friendly, and... More
