The arid island landscape, water, air, and wildlife create an awe-inspiring encounter at Kalba on the east coast of Sharjah. Set on this piece of heaven enveloped by the Gulf of Oman is Mysk Kingfisher Retreat. The beauty of the pristine beach and Indian Ocean waters is matched perfectly by refined interiors in soft beiges, blues and desert browns. Savour the tranquillity as you kayak through the mangroves or watch the turtles hatch along the banks of the estuary. The retreat features activities, a SPA and a restaurant.

Mysk kingfisher retreat served me well and exceeded my expectations. I did not find any faults nor did I experience any difficulties during my 3days/2nights stay (half board package), even if the property is going thru an expansion. The room (villa 16) itself was clean, the bed was comfy, ..... It just gave me a certain type of vibe I was looking for. While I did not take advantage of any offers that the property provided (outdoor activities, spa treatment etc), the private beach (Arabian sea) was wonderful and it did share me it's own history mentally. Food did not disappoint nor did the dinner shows either. The dinner shows added excitement. My complements to the chef. There was one dish I kept adding to my plate during dinner (buffet) and that is: "The crumbed fry fish fillets" were on point. Extremely delicious. While the entire staff was friendly and super awesome, a huge big thank you to "MAHER". From the time before I arrived to the property till check out, MAHER has made sure my stay was headache free and all my requests were met. MAHER, if you are reading this review, thank you so much. I can not forget breakfast server "SHARIF" and boat operator "PYAZ" (I may have misspelled his name). They both also were exceptional. Thank you so much. All in all, mysk kingsfisher retreat is worth a try.

I needed a place to relax away from the noise and crowds. Kingfisher is an excellent choice that I never regret. It will be my first refuge after the stress of hard work. I wish them success and would like to thank Mr. Maher for all his efforts to make me comfortable.

We booked the 3 bedroom tent and it was a blast of a weekend. The plunge pool was cold but fun. A good walk to the beach and was clean. We had dinner and breakfast at their restaurant the options were limited but tasty. The sunset, moon rise and the full moon just made it gorgeous.

Fantastic staff who were attentive, knowledgeable and who had excellent suggestions to enhance our stay. The setting was magical- from the wonderful beach location to the unique tent-like accomodation. Thoroughly enjoyed the acrobat performance which made our dinner experience just fantastic, and was also so grateful to the staff who tailored a bespoke service for our group by lighting the fire pit early, as we were seated outside for dinner. Loved the mangrove walk and aquarium included in the stay and the bicycles to explore the grounds further!
