This hotel isn't much to look at from the outside but as soon as you step in it's different. Grand with chandeliers, marble floors, musicians playing in the evening and dining room views of the sea. The room are extremely cosy with thick carpet and furniture. It has the most comfortable beds I've slept in with subtle details such as noritake crokery and bulgari soaps, it's a designer hotel. The gym facilities are slightly poor with this hotel and it's was the only thing I was disappointed as there was a lack of variety in equipment. However the jacuzzi made up for this by being in a quiet location with mood lighting. I spent a lot of time in the hotels pool as it over looks the ocean, its an amazing view but it slightly ruined by there being a road running between the two. I had a buffet breakfast every day I was here and it must not be missed, the spread is extremly large with fruit, cereal, freshly made waffles & crepes with additional english, south indian and sri lankan sections. The hotel also has a rooftop bar with views of the whole strip.
