There is a 2-part reason.

1 - These photos were taken in the evening and I have a good flash on my DSLR.

2 - The lights in the room start out quite dim and then as they warm up, the lights get brighter. Pretty cool.

Ohhh wicked! People are always saying the AKL/V rooms are quite dull.

Jambo House - from May 2010

The resort is not technically a "villas" but we did stay in a villa room while we were there.

Sanaa

Ah yes, Sanaa! I was so busy enjoying the ambiance and the food I almost didn't take any photos! I had the red curry chicken and the spicy Durban chicken which reminded me of Carroll Shelby's chili (which is to say, most excellent).

Sanaa is decorated to look like an old spice market and has one of the best atmospheres of any restaurant on property! This place is a gem and we will certainly be returning! If you go there say "hey" to Amber from West Virginia.

We have an ADR for lunch on our arrival day at Sanaa - really looking forward to it! It will be in August, and hotter than #&!!, I'm sure, but I really hope we see some animals while we're enjoying our food....
Thank you for the pics!

These are all fantastic!! We stayed in AKL for our honeymoon a coupld of years ago but I'm desperately trying to get everyone on board to stay in the villas when we go back in 2 years with our kids and my parents. I'm definitely going to use these pictures as bargaining chips! How could you say no?!
