My husband was very keen on staying here and I am glad we did. We were treated beyond well and it has left us wanting more. From the time we checked in to the time we were dropped off to the airport, everything was perfect. We were immediately checked in at the gate. There is no "lobby" or a check in counter. We were showered with rose petals, given refreshing towels, a garland and fresh welcome drinks upon arrival. We were actually upgraded to a suite, which was amazing! The rooms are spectacular and have wonderful views. The architecture is amazing too. Rooms were clean, neat, spacious and aromatic.
We had lunch at the Pillars and a staff member overheard that it was my birthday. The rest is history. After a days tour of sight-seeing, we arrived back at our room and to our surprise, there was a birthday cake, champagne and flowers from the Palace! It was sweet indeed. We dined at the Sunset Pavillion, and again, amazing views with a very palatable dinner. I still can't believe the food was so good. To end the dinner, we were given a birthday dessert and the staff sang to me. Again, the attention showered was unbelievable.
Our room had a turndown service, they replaced all vanity offerings. There was even a hot water bottle in our bed. I know that is not a big deal, but to just have the little things thought of already...it was a nice touch.
Breakfast, again, it was great. Fresh juices. We even had the peacocks as neighbors. Walking the garden, the pool area, just beautiful.
We swam in the indoor pool, we were the only ones. Staff is very attentive. Even the ones I did not come across during my stay, asked if my birthday went well.
I know our stay was fantastic and would plan on coming back again. To us, we really were treated like royalty, the attention bestowed upon us was remarkable and unforgettable!!!
