The floating hotel has a capacity of 100 people and is quite spacious, with its own seats. Seating in the restaurant varies and includes comfortable wood-upholstered armchairs, sofas and couches.

In addition to the seating areas, a dhow is moored to the side, allowing visitors to enjoy the waves while sunbathing.

The floating restaurant is so special that at high tide the sea water splashes against the sides of the wooden floors and makes it sway.

Idyllic and tranquil, Moorings Restaurant offers a new feel away from the busy beaches in other parts of the coast.

Visitors can take a ride on a dhow or watch sea activities at the creek while enjoying the breeze from the water’s edge that gives spectacular views of the ocean, especially at sunset.
