I read the reviews here before I booked but I was not prepared for just how different the experience was to be. Yes its great architecture, cool rooms, great use of the outdoors, great breakfast, etc. But it also somehow all works with zero human interaction. Zero.
I pulled up and there was another woman getting out of a taxi looking for an elevator and the front desk. Sorry, wrong spot. No front desk, no concierge, no bartender, no waiter, no phone operator, not even a phone! But who needs a phone in their hotel room these days? I hadn't even thought about how asinine hotel phones are in today's world until I realized my room had none.
All hotels should be this way. Another reviewer compared it to an ATM. If you still like going inside the bank and dealing with a teller, this is probably not the place for you.
Congratulations to the owners. They have created an incredible experience for their guests. I cannot imagine how much planning had to go into their efforts.
