We returned to the UK from this amazing island and even more amazing hotel a couple of days ago.
The 13 hour flight is worth every second from the moment that you enter the drive to the Oberoi.
We were warmly greeted with cold towels and mojitos, taken to our room immediately and checked in there. No sitting around in reception. This set the standard for the rest of our stay at a hotel which Marc Denton, the General manager and every member of his staff deliver with genuine friendliness and sincerity.
We have stayed in many superior hotels, but the Oberoi tops them all.
From day one, we were treated to a level of service that we have never experienced before by every member of staff we encountered, including the gardeners of which there are many.
The grounds of this ' sanctuary' are kept immaculate.
The two pools one of which is adult only, are beautiful, and the beaches of which there are three separate areas with lots of sun beds are sandy/coral and spotlessly clean. The beach bar service was really good with complimentary ice and water given out regularly along with surprising other treats during the day. Thank you especially to Keesh and the team.
The hotel beach activity team were really helpful, and there are lots of complimentary water sports.
Whilst we were there, the hotel hosted a Presidential state visit, and when speaking to Sonah the restaurant manager if he and his staff were busier because of it, he said Yes, but the guests always came first. This was evident.
The food and service in both restaurants in the hotel was wonderful.
We were accommodated in a luxury pavillion with fabulous views of both sea and mountains, which was absolutely beautiful. We lost each other in the massive bed which was so comfortable!
You must visit the spa and where we had the best couples massage from Preety and Isabelle in beautifully calm surroundings.
Do participate in the Touching Senses programme provided at no extra cost. We watched Ravi, a sous chef create a delicious fish curry, were taken around the grounds by a world famous conservationist, who explained the many trees, plants and animals, and went star gazing with another expert. There are many others too, but we ran out of time.
We now understand why guests return repeatedly, and we look forward to joining this list.
Finally to Marc, thank you and congratulations to you and all your staff, too many to mention by name for providing us with an experience which will never be forgotten.
