The manager at this hotel surely knows how to lead his staff and my wife and I along with our 6 year old daughter had a thoroughly relaxing and fantastic stay at this hotel as a net result.
We, after having spent one very disappointing night at the Lux Belle Mare moved to the Oberoi into a Villa with Pool which was very private - nice sized pool, dining terrace and very comfortable bed, sunken bath and large shower with seperate dressing room. Just what the doctor ordered !!
This hotel, the gardens, the facilities, the service, private dining, the restaurants etc are fully deserving of their 5 star rating. A really nice touch which as a parent I thought was excellent was a family pool with a seperate adults only pool, both beautifully designed and avoided that parental stress of trying to keep your daughter quiet around 'grown ups'. That said as this hotel has only I believe 70 rooms in 20 acres you'd be hard pressed even at 100% capacity to ever feel overrun or overcrowded. Yes it is a little more expensive but you would not regret this for a moment.
Kids cub here if you have children is perfectly balanced - not a drop your child off for the day affair, moreover well selected excursions such as going to an aquarium, clay modelling, art work, waterskiing, craft work etc for a few hours a day - just enough time for Mum and Dad to have a chill out but equally spend time with our wonderful daughter whom whilst working don't see enough of already ! And for catering for your child they make such a fuss of them and make them feel so special, it's just wonderful.
I didn't sample the Spa but my wife was in a very good mood every time she came back so it must be good !! :-) and the gym was well equipped.
So, if your idea is luxury surroundings, beautiful sunsets, attentive discreet service, very good food and a perfect blend of relaxation and fun, don't bother looking anywhere else, take the plunge and book this hotel. If you want to play golf, go horse riding, venture around the island etc etc all can be organised but then you can get away from it all and enjoy the serenity of your luxury surroundings.
My only gripe, that I had wasted 1 night of my 10 night break at the Lux Belle Mare.
If you go for a Royal Villa 112 - ideal spot overlooking the beach and sunsets. Though to be perfect...
