This was a really nice place to stay.
Check in was strict - not one of those places if you turn up early and your room is ready they let you in. No, it is all very controlled here.
The room was very nice looking out over the ocean. Very comfortable, good bed, good shower.
No privacy though. When you go out on to the deck for the view you can look right into your neighbours bedroom as they can yours.
We had booked the Kaiseke dinner. It was an average meal given the price. The atmosphere in the restaurant was prissy and uncomfortable. Not a sound above a whisper.
Before we had finished the staff had bought the bill and were clearing up the restaurant around us. We dined at six which was the first available sitting so it was not a lateness issue. I have never anywhere experienced this sort of rudeness in a restaurant.
This is a very slick operation that you pay big dollars for. I would stay there again but certainly give the evening meal a miss.
