We had booked ourselves an ocean view villa but on arrival we were upgraded to a hill-top ocean view villa for no extra cost at all! Needless to say, we were thrilled and hoped that the service and amenities would match with the welcome... More

A well balanced experience to relax and take it easy: the setting, the hospitality services and the friendliness of everyone. If the rates were lower I would go more often. The beach is narrow but still pleasant.

Vegetarian food is not easily available in countries where people are mostly non-vegetarian.The friendly,courteous food manager Konstantin Nemolochniy was helpful in providing us with vegetarian food options. Availability of good food is crucial to any holiday to make enjoyable.

A massive apologies for the late review of Raffles. We stayed at Raffles for 7 nights after being married at Ephelia, this worked perfectly for us and our travel agent (seyexclusive) kindly got us an upgrade to a Panoramic Room.
