눉Most high end hotels would include some free water each day for guests. Our room was not regularly cleaned although we spent hours poolside and ate leisurely breakfasts. We booked a family room (in Jan for a Mar stay) which wasn't available when we checked in but we moved on the second day. Due to a very noisy wedding on our second day, we were given free transport and day access to the sister hotel on the beach which turned out to be an Ayurveda hospital full of naked sunbathers with only an extremely expensive set menu available for lunch (7500 rupees for 3 and we were all still hungry) and no massage or anything available to us. Not exactly fun for my 11 yr old who was hoping for a fun day relaxing in the pool. Our last night, there was a large reception with music until 11:30pm as well but our feelings were again considered by staff.
눇The lakeside location is stunning and usually quiet. There is even a view from the pool. The food is excellent and plentiful (we had half-board). Sunil especially (but also Rohana) made us feel valued and welcome even though there were a few unfortunate problems. Tours can be easily arranged and the location is ideal for relaxation. The beds are very comfortable and our shower was incredibly high tech! Even with the hiccups, I would still highly recommend this place but management should consider focusing on one idea rather than trying to cater to all needs. As a venue with a large hall, it is stunning so perhaps only cater to guests of the parties or consider developing alternate access points so other guests are comfortable using the facilities at these times.
