This is my third review of this outstanding hotel so the review will be fairly short. Suffice to say that after our 8th visit in November we continue to be impressed with the quality of service and the friendliness of all the staff. This hotel is within easy walking distance to the centre of town but is a true oasis from the hustle and bustle and traffic of this busy metropolis. In short, location is great.
Yes, there will be some street noise but this is hard to avoid anywhere in SR.
The rooms, particularly poolside rooms are lovely and the pool itself is eye-catching - oil lamps illuminate the poolside area at night giving a wonderful spectacle.
Whilst we tend to eat out in town, the restaurant is first class. So too is the Spa. This is our real indulgence and the staff are great. My wife had a recent shoulder operation and Sokhon her therapist deserves special mention - a real credit to the Spa.
With our many previous visits, we regard this great hotel as a real home from home. It is an indulgence and well worth it. Carla, the recently appointed GM is introducing subtle improvements all the while and all the staff seem highly motivated. We love this hotel and strongly recommend it above the other 5 star properties in this fast developing town.
