Most liked experience by me till now as a family hotel compared to several hotels I visited till now. The most amazing part was the personalised services across all the outlets whether it's guest relations, concierge, restaurants or the most amazing Spa. We look forward to be back in March most probably.

And not only is the food supreme, but the service...

A beautiful hotel located off Marina Beach. Aesthetically created for luxury and services to match. It was a really relaxing weekend for us and we would love to repeat this sometime! The restaurants were buzzing and had great F&B concepts, design and appeal. Food was very creative and tasty. The service all around was professional and pleasing.
