Myself and 5 friends stayed at this resort for 3 nights past week as a association retreat. We stayed at the 3 bedroom Amala residence and also took two more rooms, one a Spa Studio and another the Spa Villa. Overall, the hotel is very well priced and excellent value. The rooms are generally spacious, with bathrooms outside for the spa bedroom and villa which I really enjoyed. The big residence also had a full kitchen, living/ dining room, and a lounge on the 2nd floor which was great to do some yoga or meditation. Though it cannot be compared to 5-star properties like St. Regis/ 4 Seasons or Banyan Tree, it offers a very personal service that definitely comparable to the big boys. Best of all, it was available for 1/2 or 1/3 of the price.
Some complaints - Food generally was not good. Breakfast is a-la-carte but selection small. It also took us at least 45 minutes to get all the dishes for a lunch for 7. Meantime, the toilet on the ground floor really reeked.... old pipes need some serious flushing out i suppose. The pool is quite clean and calming, yet the decking is weathered.... the sun lounge cushions were also abit worn and may need to be replaced.
Overall, I think it is an excellent choice for what they charge and would recommend to most travelers.
