Booking with Shantaa

My husband and I are looking to book a honeymoon package at Shantaa however it seems they only accept payment by bank transfer. I've read a lot of reviews and from what I see it's reputable but when we went to the bank they seemed sure this is a scam. We just wanted to get some feedback from those who have been to the Shantaa resort and have used this method for payment. Is it typical for Shantaa to use a personal bank account rather than a business account?

We would greatly appreciate any feedback, thank you!

Don't worry about it. Its just the way they do their bookings. See this thread from 3 years ago https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g11527…

^^ Sandra - the issue isn't with bank transfers. They're common in all countries. It's transferring into a personal account rather than an account in the business / hotel name. Which is a bit unusual and it's sensible to check first that the account is actually legit.
