Great hospitality!
Lovely lovely people, they go all out to make you happy and attend your needs. Zahir the manager at restaurant, Dhiman the duty manager, Tunu and Roman at the Spa, Tiwari at welcome area, the lady at the dessert station who made especially delicacies for us, all of them were amazing. Whatever we needed and named, they took care of. Pool can be much better and has no character, they shall improve it. Rooms do not have an outside view except at entrance (suites are great). These are the 2 drawbacks which i term as design flaws and shouldn't be as the location is excellent (outside shall flow in) and it is a new property.
