Two week’s isolation is not an easy task unless you are compensated with all the requirements within the room and the one and only entertainment hotel can offer is the FOOD that’s served to your room doorstep. I must mention that the nerve of this hotel is it’s tasty and the variation of FOOD that’s offered. With a minimum staff yet a very good customer service provided by the few available staff . Although Chef Chandana is in the back of the house operations, he is readily available with a positive response to any requests related to food. Our quarantine stay was made comfortable and felt that there’s nothing more one can do to make the stay better . Value for money. Read less
