This is an absolutely wonderful place, from the moment you walk in the door you are treated beautifully. About 6 Km from the old town, in a perfect setting. Rooms are beautiful, sitting on the balcony having a drink and watching the sunset 100 metres from the sea is brilliant. Nicest staff you could ever meet. Great bed, great view...what more could you want?
But wait, theres more...we just arrived and they delivered afternoon tea, fresh fruit plate and just baked banana cake. We were on a package including dinner, something we usually prefer not to do as we don't like locking ourselves into eating where we are staying...but we are so glad we did. The food was stupendous. A table on the sand with the waves making gentle noises, a six course menu all included ( with things like between course sorbets, delicious fresh fish) and what could only be called a beautiful romantic setting . The manager introduced himself to us, had a long chat about how good the food was , and how the Chef had 35 years experience (it showed) and the next morning the chef came out to us during a glorious breakfast and introduced himself to us and discussed his food philosophy. This place gives the most personalised, caring service I have experienced in years. Truly wonderful, the staff all seem to like working there, everyone seems happy and they are all laughing and joking as they work. The lady on the front desk was so friendly, you just don't get service like this even in very expensive paces...and this was not at all expensive.
A special mention to the man who does the Ayurvedic massages. He is truly brilliant. They set up a massage table in your room and you lie there with the breeze flowing through the door, hearing the sound of the ocean while he gives you the best massage you will ever have. His name is Vidura, he is truly brilliant, we both told the manager he is one of the best masseurs we have ever had. Just perfect for getting all the sore muscles soothed after nearly a month travelling through this wonderful country.
Summing Up: Great position, nice pool, stunning view, fabulous staff team, amazing masseur, genuinely lovely people everywhere, caring management and the best food I have eaten in ages....We have just arrived home to Australia,and just want to go back, absolutely loved this place.
