Well where do I start, Just a beautiful beautiful hotel in the lovely quiet village of Kiotari. On arrival in the car park at around 10.30pm we were met by the porter to whisk away our bags, such a small thing but after a long day travelling we already felt spoilt. The lady on reception was really friendly and asked if we would like to enjoy a beverage whilst she finished off our paperwork. The sparkling wine was very welcome indeed. Within a few minutes we were being shown to our suite, when we entered we were greeted by two bottles of complimentary wine and a selection of fresh fruit. We were really hungry and too late for the restaurant so we ordered from room service, it arrived in a timely manner, was of a lovely quality and delivered with a smile.
The suite was just lovely, very minimalist, classy and spacious. The only thing I found to moan about was the really poor choice of English speaking channels on the TV, oh and the internet arrangements - in these days of iPads and the like it would be useful if two people could access the free wi-if at the same time!
The bed was comfortable and everywhere well maintained and cleaned. The bathroom had a whirlpool bath a nice touch but unused in our case. The separate shower and loo are just beyond, separated by a glass door which is one of my few gripes as it doesn't offer much privacy (noise-wise!!) we had booked a suite with its own private pool and although very cold, on a hot day it was lovely to be able to take a dip in your own pool, as and when you want to. We barely moved from our suite/terrace for the first couple of days - very relaxing. However, we had hired a car so we ventured further afield from time to time after that. After a few days we made our way to the hotels private beach, which is very stony and well worth buying some swim shoes (not attractive but very practical!). When we were there in September there was plenty of room and never a shortage of sun beds. the beach attendant was always very friendly and eager to help. We did, however, think it would have been nice if there were extra towels available, without having to go back to the hotel. Interestingly with so many of the suites/rooms having their own pools, and the closeness of the beach - the pool area very rarely had more than half a dozen people around it - I don't know if the main pool was any warmer than the private ones. What we found made this hotel super special was the child-free aspect, just lovely to have a sense of calm throughout the whole complex.
Our package included breakfast and dinner, the breakfast had a excellent selection and a lovely vista from the terrace around the pool area. The dinner package allowed you to choose room two set menus, although you could pick things from each one. The food was all of a good quality and nicely presented, however we were there 11 nights and did choose to eat out a couple of nights for a change. The service in the restaurant was a little 'formulaic', there was a set routine and the staff very rarely deviated from it, it would have been nice to see a little more personality/humour - but perhaps I'm being a little over-critical, they were all pleasant and professional.
Summing up, a beautifully designed child-free hotel with friendly attentive staff, in a lovely quiet location - would not hesitate to recommend (and already have done)
