In love with art ever since she was a little girl, the Rouhi Retreat's founder Sharifah became a PATRON OF THE ARTS, creating within the resort a GALLERY and launching an INTERNATIONAL ARTIST RESIDENCE PROGRAM.
Welcoming aspiring artists from all over the world, she allocated an apartment above the gallery as a permanent Artist Residence - providing visiting artists with a beautiful, inspiring environment and the opportunity to completely focus on their creation without having to worry about the mundane. Their art will be displayed in the on-site gallery, with resort guests and invitees attending the opening ceremony of the exhibition having the opportunity to purchase art pieces they fall in love with.

Staying with us for holidays? You will not be the first guest to leave inspired to rediscover a long forgotten love for photography, drawing or craft making.
Stroll through our gallery, strike a conversation with the resident artist and observe him as he daringly splashes vibrant colors on the canvas or molds from clay a stunning sculpture. Make sure you don't miss the weekly get-togethers where the artist talks about his passion to create and shares inspiring insider tips.
