We were provided a bday cake in our room and Our room was upgraded to premium temptation pool villa as a gift from taj that made our stay even more memorable....

As most reviews have said its a lovely property, with good food, supported by some really good service. The antique feel of the rooms takes you a different era. Really liked the welcome chilled coconut water and the chocolates they placed in the room. Little touches that make the stay memorable. Overall a good holiday with family.
