Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film but in fact has evolved to look so other-worldy as the 'lost world' island has been separated from mainland Africa for between six and seven million years.Officially it’s part of Yemen, but not the war-torn, al-Qaeda-strewn, drone-attack part. This is the peaceful, exotic, beautiful, unvisited, enchanting part. One of the most remote places on Earth, Socotra is a lost world, with animal and plant life found nowhere else, plus spotless beaches, dramatic landscapes, frequently forbidding weather, and a local language that has no written script.
Much like the Galapagos Islands, which are known for their incredible array of wildlife, Socotra Island is home to around 800 rare species of flora and fauna, around a third of which are found nowhere else on the planet.
Nestled in the Indian Ocean some 250km away from Somalia and 340km from Yemen, the island's harsh environment includes wide sandy beaches, limestone caves and towering mountains, but is for the most part very hot and dry

The service is convenient and the prices seem to be better by comparison. My hotel was okay but next time around I'll choose a more upscale property. Alice and Douglas D
Hotel selections are good prices can't be beat on other similar sites or hotels own sites. Susan C
I'm sticking with this site for now- I found my usual hotel listed for a price that seemed too good to be true when I compared with the hotel's own price for the same it was higher. No reason to go back. Jasmine H
