This is one of the best hotels we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The room was stunning and immaculately cleaned. We had a sea view which meant we could watch the sunrise over the Indian Ocean every morning from our bed. By far though, the thing that made our holiday one to never forget was the staff! Wow, we have never been made so welcome anywhere in our lives. Vinay, Bhavish, Bhishav, Michael and Valen on the bar could not have done a better job. They were always smiling and lsughing and nothing was to much to ask. Sanjay, Priyanka, Vidusha, Rewa from the restaurant offered the best table service imaginable. Med the bar and restaurant Manager was incredible at his job and complimented by the perfect team under him. These guys really are the crème de la crème. The hotel itself it’s located on a corner of the lagoon, the sea is crystal clear and the beach is beautifully manicured every morning. If you fancy activities the guys at the beach hut can sort you out. Windsurfing, kayaking, volley ball and beach soccer are always on the agenda. The food takes this hotel to another level. Chef Nitish and his team are the best, every meal that leaves the kitchen is perfection itself, beautifully presented and tasting divine. My words truly can’t describe what an amazing place this is, you will have to go and see for yourselves! Finally, the manager Arvind went out his way to make this holiday one to remember. Arvind you really have created the perfect team. Thank you all for making our holiday one to never forget! We love and miss you all already. Loads of love Mr and Mrs Benny 😉 Read less
