Mid last year I reviewed this hotel and was disappointed with the Red Salt Restaurant. We stayed one night in late February 2014. There is a new buzz about this place. There are extensions going on and they have completely revamped the lower bar area, removed a seldom open Asian restaurant and created a very good casual dining area. As a result we did not eat at the Red Salt but I will review that restaurant again, later in the year.
I guess that says it all, we still love this place and its getting better and has new new vibe. No idea if this is down to new management, but I recommend this hotel.
We will be returning in July and staying in one of the villas for a week.
