Outstanding for value and luxury. This property, right on the Indian Ocean, is ideal in every manner possible. The location is perfect, the apartments are well appointed and comfortable with a beautiful view, and the food and service --- impeccable. The staff is kind, helpful, and full of personality and goodness. It has just about anything and everything you could ask for - including a near decadent restaurant, a well equipped gym and a spa that offers the weary traveler an opportunity for pampering.
One evening I had a deliciously fresh red snapper, simply grilled with a side of garlic butter and fresh, fresh veggies. For lunch, I found the Chicken Tikka sandwich to be the best sandwich I have had in YEARS! All in all, I would highly recommend Lantana Galu and hope that one day I will return.
