I was just checked out from Raffles Hainan, thanks to all the team to made my stay so delighted, my parents indeed enjoy the stay.
It was a family reunion trip to celebrate my father's 60th birthday, so I booked raffles from its website comes with limousine transfer to ease the hassle as I read other's review that the hotel was quite away from airport. Orignial car was a Buick however was upgraded to Audi, so a easy journey from airport to hotel for them. When we reached our room, as consider our special occasion, welcome amenities was ready and room comes with a stunning ocean view of South China Sea.
We stayed total 5 nights, thus every morning we went for breakfast at desa restaurant, just amzing from 2nd day onwards, the staff already remember and greeted me by name, asked if I would like the same outdoor seat facing hotel's greenery and the sea. Breakfast spread was excellent, healthy yet delicious, and I personal favorate is the Gugelhupf bread and the chinese counter for the boiled vegetable goes with chicken broth. Dinner then we went for Baiwei Chinese restautant, thanks to the chef go for the extra mile to cook the dish which off the menu for us.
As travelled to China, at first, I'm not really expect to much from the Sapori Italian restaurant, had only one dinner, however proved my thought was wrong, Chef Zotto made superb authentic intalian and Mediterranean cuisine.
For hotel physically facility wise, nothing to fault at all, as a new property in clearwater bay, from its out architectual beauty to room interior design to the tropical greenery. Even small detail such as slippers or Shanghai Tang's Toiletry, all reflect the tip top quality.
To make hotel named Raffles, it's the people made the difference, great appreciation for the constantly personal touch through out my stay. I have to mention the team member Mr Kent Si, Ms Zara Geng, Chef Zotto, Mr Andrew Hu, Ms Marilyn, Ms Ella and many more, I can't remember every one.
A well said that a Raffles hotel is something beyond its location, its decor & its amenities, it's emotionally luxury.
