We have been coming to India for 17 years + and been wanting to stay at the Oberoi for the same length of time.... yet never had the finances until now. We stayed twice in fact - at the start of July for 2 nights and then for another night about 10 days later after our trip to Kerala. In Kerela we stayed at The Taj (2 properties), The Leela (Kovalam) and Niraamaya (Kovalam). The Oberoi had by far the best service of any of the other 5 star hotels. In fact having travelled fairly extensively throughout the world, this is the best service anywhere where we have been (even better than The Samaya in Bali - which was excellent).
Some of the staff were quite amazing - we had Vineet & Sarath make some beautiful creations with the room decoration, we received some thoughtful and unexpected gifts - a special mention to Shijo, Gauri & Karthik. Tunk that took us to our room was also very professional. In addition we received an upgrade to a suite on our 2nd visit - a lovely surprise.
Most of the food was also amazing. We had the Sunday buffet - so much food and delicious. We tried the Thai restaurant and again the food was excellent - with extra dishes given from the chefs. Breakfast was great too as was the polo club (for snacks). The only food that did not live up to expectations was the Chinese restaurant. Service at all eateries was excellent.
The rooms were well appointed - great to have ipad for all the room requirements - although the size was a little tight for 2 adults and 1 child. The suite was more than ample and very luxurious - wish we had stayed 2 nights on our return.
The pool was a lovely getaway from the crazy MG road outside. Shijo was very attentive.
Overall we would say that staying at the Oberoi makes you want to come back. They are friendly, helpful, service is outstanding and they were very generous. The only thing i would like to see is free wifi (you get 30min complimentary) but I think all 5 star hotels should offer free wifi.
