The PARADISE Perfect place for relaxing. 4 big really beatiful villas with a private small pool each one. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is amazing only 5 steps away from the hotel. It is a very exclusive hotel where you feel very appreacited and very well treated. The food is very tasty. Incredible experience.

Top Hotel mit Top Service Haben die Zeit im Jua Retreat sehr genossen. Der Service ist perfekt und insgesamt ist alles sehr familiär. Das Essen ein Traum. Die Bungalows sind einfach gebaut, aber doch sehr luxuriös. Durch die offene Bauweise fühlt man sich wie mitten in der Natur, aber doch mit einem Gefühl der Sicherheit. Das Meer liegt direkt vor einem...was will man mehr. Spitzen Unterkunft!!!

PARADISO!!! Siamo stati quattro giorni qui al Jua per terminare il nostro viaggio di nozze. Dopo 10 minuti di strada sterrata abbiamo raggiunto quello che per noi è sembrato il P A R A D I S O. Il Jua ha 4 ville a disposizione, con tutte e disposizione una piccola piscina privata e il solarium. Quando arrivi al Jua ti senti come se fossi a casa, all’arrivo trovi in camera cappelli, borsa mare e teli mare. La Villa ha una vista mozzafiato sull’Oceano; questo è soggetto a maree che creano un panorama meraviglioso. La notte essendo che di luci intorno ve ne sono pochissime è possibile vedere le stelle in una quantità inverosimile. Lo Staff del Jua è qualcosa di speciale: precisi, attenti, sempre sorridenti e mai mai invadenti. Un ringraziamento speciale ad Hassan per il suo egregio lavoro e per la sua infinita disponibilità e simpatia. La chicca del Jua è la cucina: pranzi e cene sempre fronte mare con piatti veramente sfiziosi! Le parole d’ordine sono relax e tranquillità! Se lo consigliamo?!? ASSOLUTAMENTE SI! Asante sana Jua ❤️

Amazing place Une expérience incroyable au delà de nos attentes. Au delà du lieu et la situation qui a été décrit par tout le monde, c’est avant tout le calme et la sérénité que nous avons trouvé ici. Avec seulement 4 énorme bungalow, nous avions l’impression d’avoir le lieu pour nous seuls et avons trouvé le repos que nous étions venus chercher. Être réveillé par le soleil, s’endormir au bruit de la mer dans un cadre idyllique est un enchantement. Tout est propre et sécurisé (merci les Masaï!) La formule all inclusive est la meilleure idée que nous ayons pu avoir. Les cocktails sont excellents, variés et la cuisine digne de grands restaurants avec une carte du soir qui change quotidiennement. Nous sommes allés de surprise en surprise durant 4 jours, grâce à un staff aux petits soins. Merci Djamal, Emmanuel, Jakobino, Nicolas, Makoi, Hassan et l’équipe de ménage pour leurs attentions ! En vous souhaitant à tous une excellente continuation, encore merci pour tout !

Fantastisch! jua is een kleinschalig paradijselijk resort. Er zijn 4 ruime villa’s , waar je met 2 personen kan verblijven dus er zijn nooit meer dan 8 personen. Iedere villa heeft een klein privé-zwembad en er is een groot algemeen zwembad. Er is een directe toegang tot het strand. Er is een uitgebreide staf die je compleet in de watten legt! Het eten is van uitzonderlijk hoog niveau! Er wordt uitgegaan van een all inclusive formule, maar op een verfijnde manier. Je voelt je echt een VIP! Tijdens ons verblijf was er ook nog een avond met heerlijk swahiliaans eten en dans van masaai Genoeg activiteiten bij te boeken maar ook heerlijk om gewoon te relaxen na een intensieve Safari. Ook een goede plek voor een workation. Niet geschikt voor kleine kinderen.

Jua Paradise My husband and I had the perfect ending to our honeymoon at Jua- we can't recommend Hassan and his team enough! The villas and food were incredible, and the property/views were stunning. We're ready to go back!

Amazing place! Definitely recommend to everyone! We were on our honeymoon and stayed in Jua Retreat for 4 nights which were amazing! We had all inclusive option booked through booking.com. The best thing is that it is super private. There are only 4 villas meaning 8 people in all resort! If you want privacy, it’s a place for you! Villa was beautiful with massive bed. Room was always clean. Great view and access to the sea. Large swimming pool and paddle board included in all inclusive option. Staff was exceptional! We did quite a lot of activities which were available and hotel staff organised everything for us (snorkelling, massage, Jozani forest visit, Quad Safari). Food was great, although could have more vegetarian options available. My wife didn’t have much to choose from as she she do not eat seafood. However, for me, food was great! Definitely recommend this place to everyone! Thank you very much Jua team!

The most amazing experience we have ever had! I cannot express how much we loved this resort! We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here. My wife told the manager that it was our anniversary and he had a table brought down to the ocean floor about 50 yards from the resort during low tide. Lanterns were lit, and a large floral arch was over our table under the stars. The food was brought out to us by the entire staff as they sung songs of celebration. We were completely blown away. The absolute best service from everyone there.
