We planned to go there one day before Eid, however were terribly disappointed to know that the hotel was fully booked. The only room available was a Presidential Suite which of course is out of our Budget. Still enjoyed the day out over there by making use of Olympic size pool, horse ride and boats.

The staff was wonderful and the Indian food superb and can be served outdoors next to a landscaped "stream" and garden. Given that it is such a large resort, it is important to... More
