Old Kent is a lovely, serene and relaxing place! Since there are only eight chalets, you get a lot of privacy. We and our two kids had a fun and relaxing time there. The chalets are spacious and comfortable. The club house's movie room has a good collection of movies.
The best part though, is the people! They want to go out of their way to help you with a smile!
Tara, the housekeeping supervisor was very sweet and struck a chord with my kids and wife. She went out of her way to help us, while always smiling :-)
Manoj was always accessible on his phone - that was really helpful during the odd occasion when the intercom was not working.
Deepak was great too - he customized the food for us (it helps a lot, when you have kids)! And I don't want to miss out the housekeeping ladies who helped my little son learn to give a flying kiss :-) and the boys who were serving food and helping us with everything else.
When we had minor issues, they were quick to sort those out. Also, when my six year old son wanted ice cream at 10 pm, Deepak & Manoj tried to get it. When they were not able to get it, Deepak and a couple of the boys came to our Chalet with chocolates that put a smile on my son's face.
Overall, a lovely experience!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

As a tribute to the Wright Family, each room is fondly named after one of the family members who once inhabited within. The property has been designed keeping in mind its rich history and tradition, ensuring the conservation and preservation of the natural surroundings, within an exclusive boutique setting.
