From start to finish, we have been totally spoilt.
At our arrival, we were given cocktails looking over the beach. We checked in at our luxury pavilion and we were given a free bottle of wine (we were on honeymoon)
The room was a lovely size, with a sunken bath looking out on a little garden. The shower was perfect. There was also a room for the cases and clothes so they could be out of sight. We used the in house laundry service for pressing our clothes.
The dining options were various, whether at the main restaurant (fine dining) beautifully presented and plenty of choice ;the menus are rotated twice a week. There is a mix of vegetarian dishes, meat and fish. The staff are polite, friendly and attentive. We have been to numerous Michelin starred restaurants and this was a match for any.
The views from here are to the beach and there are candles and flames at night. In the distance, live piano music could be heard from the bar, where extensive cocktails can be supped watching the sun set at sea.
Breakfast is at the main restaurant and there are hot options, including full English, continental style and local options (Creole sausages were lovely with a coconut chutney).
There is in house dining, breakfast in bed or dinner in the room /veranda. These choices are different from the main restaurant.
As well as menus on the beach and the bar, there is "On The Rocks". This needs to be booked and was no extra cost to us on half board. This restaurant is on the beach front and has the best tempura prawns anywhere. Watching the moon set out to sea, smelling the barbecue where the chef can be seen creating masterpieces, whether seafood, including Rosenburg prawns from the Madagascar sea (size of languistines) or prime marinated meats, was stunning! The staff here again were friendly and totally considerate and relaxed.
Even on the beach, free water, cocktails, fruit, sorbets and cool towels were handed out at leisure. As I have mentioned, we have been totally spoilt and on the final night of our honeymoon, we were surprised to have an extra prawn, champagne cocktail and when we returned to our pavilion, a presentation box of local luxury rum, a card and a freshly run bubble bath filled with rose petals lit with candles. We enjoyed this together.
I loved the pool, the extensive water sports, the massage, the proximity to everything, the staff and the feeling of being welcomed, remembered and thought of. We would like to thank all the staff at the Oberoi (the cleaners were thorough, friendly and made us an elephant from towels). We will be back xx
