Ikaros Hotel

Resort in Failaka Island

If you like the island enough to stay, this hotel has a range of facilities, including children’s zoo, lake, horse riding, camel rides and water sports. Crafts are produced in a living heritage village and are available for sale. The hotel offers rooms in an ably refurbished police station as well as traditional houses that sleep five to 15 people.

The hotel also offers day rates of KD15 per adult and KD10 per child on Friday, Saturday and public holidays and operates a catamaran service from Marina Cres (next to Starbucks). You need to book and must arrive 45 minutes before departure.
