What do I look forward to on leisure trips?
A nice and clean resort, good location, delicious food and a great service.And to me, great service is what sets the hotel/resort apart from others.
I liked most of the things about the resort but the staff make it an outstanding resort.
Will I visit again, oh yes.
We spent 3 nights in Oberoi and were pampered by their lovely staff day in day out. I must admit that getting to the resort is a pain (2 hour drive from the airport) but once you are at the resort, you are in for a great time. We stayed in OceanView luxury pavilion and the rooms were spacious with huge balcony (great for private candle light dinner if you wish).
There is no buffet breakfast so we were a bit apprehensive initially but the breakfast was more than enough and cakes and muffins were excellent. So was the fresh fruit platter and juice :-)
Nothing to complain really. The staff took really good care of our kid while we enjoyed our food and I can't appreciate that enough. The lunch and dinner were excellent as well. We opted to dine in on 2 nights and the staff did a great job in setting up table for perfect candle night dinner in our balcony.
We took a half day tour to Gilli islands and were quite happy with the arrangements made by water sports desk.Snorkelling near Gilli island is a must, try feeding the fish while you snorkel..its fun.
You can also snorkel or kayak near the jetty, spend your evenings playing football on lush green outdoors or just take a bicycle tour.
Overall, Great place, good food and excellent service.
