We had an amazing weekend at the hotel!! We were looking for relaxation, and fully relaxed we were at the end of our 3 days' journey! From the welcome we received on day 1 from Nishaad for his professionalism and his team, the relaxing massage at the spa to the delicious food (not to forget the one and only burger truck), everything was impressive!

With great enthusiam, my boyfriend and I are willing to share the wonderful experience we had during our stay in Tamassa (07.08.2020 - 09.08.2020). Starting with the reception, the way Ayeshna welcomed us marked our soul. Without forgetting I would love to thank Leena, the guest relation manager and Pooja, the guest relation officer who was always there to ask about whether we are having a great time or not and always there to provide us with their best service. The fairy in disguise, Jaya from the bar who has always been welcoming us wearing her great smile on her face has been so helpful for us to live the moments at its best. When we talk about holidays obviously it is about food. Dinner at Playa restaurant was excellent, and taking the time to thank Chef Sandiren for his part of work in providing us with the delicious food. Executive Sous Chef Mahesh, We thank you for taking great care of us during our stay. We believe that F&B is an art, and the people there are the artists. Amresh thank you so much for guiding us to choose the best foods and beverages in Playa. You were always the Star and will always be. Vinesh, the F&B manager, thanking you for always being there to provide your additional services. All the services provided were best. Kajal from the housekeeping, we really appreciated your help in keeping our room-2107 clean and tip top. Melinna, from the spa - girl, you have magic on your fingers. A new version of me will be going to work on Monday, really needed that relaxation massage. Thank you Tamassa team for the excellent experience we had. It is already my second stay and will be here in December again for sure. Appreciated your service from our heart and soul. Read less
