My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week with my parents following a two week tour of Southern India. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome, we were greeted by Viva who had us checked in in no time and from that moment on we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The staff were so friendly and helpful and ensured that we came away with many wonderful memories. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We stayed on a half board basis so ate in the Seagull restaurant. The food was excellent, a mixture of buffet and "a la carte", all freshly prepared and offering a huge variety. Rajneesh, our waiter was a gem, he took the time to explain all the dishes, instruct the kitchen as to our varying tastes for spices and produced many dishes that were not on the menu. Without his guidance we would have missed out on many culinary delights. My mum and dad celebrated their Golden wedding whilst here, a day made particularly memorable by the hotel and staff who provided wine, fruit and nibbles in their room, a special anniversary meal, 50 red roses, a bottle of Prosecco and a decorated cake, a special thanks to Dale for helping to organise this. We spent most days relaxing by the pool, due to a tropical storm off the bay of Bengal the weather was a little changeable but every day our sunbeds were set up ready for us, Prabu ensured that we had everything we could possibly need including a brolly to fend off the rain showers. He amused us with his local knowledge and kept my husband entertained. We have never stayed in a hotel where we have been made to feel so welcome, where nothing was too much trouble and the staff so friendly. On our last day the restaurant staff organised a Bon Voyage cake. We left with so many good memories and some very good friends that we will keep in touch with and hope to see again some time. The staff here are a credit to the Taj group.
