We have just returned from a lovely short break at Ti Kaye, we have stayed before a couple of years ago and had a lovely time then, however, it was great to notice some nice little touches and changes since our last visit.
In particular there has been an upgrade to the dining area which has a very nice contemporary, natural feel with solid wood tables and chairs and crisp white linen for the evening meal. This infrastructure enhancement is also complimented by an upping in the food quality as well. I had a most fantastic pepperpot for a starter which I could easily have eaten the next night as a main course had it been available (it was a special but my suggestion is to make it a regular fixture!). My wife had a perfect Mahi Mahi for lunch in the beach restaurant, which was honestly speaking one of the best pieces of fish, perfectly prepared, which we have had on the island. Kudos to the chef down at the beach restaurant for that! All our meals were satisfying, tasty and well presented.
There is also a new wine cellar in which you can enjoy a private romantic meal or get educated on the broad selection of wines available at Ti Kaye. It must be one of the most extensive cellars on the island, with a literally mindboggling selection of fine wines from around the globe. I was a little overwhelmed by the range to be frank, however, I need not have worried as the sommelier was right there on hand to help me and made the perfect choice for our meal with a wonderful quality Beaujolais which I would never have picked myself, which was not only top quality but very well priced. DO NOT BE SHY ABOUT SEEKING HELP WITH THE WINELIST ITS WELL WORTH INDULGING WITH THE HELP OF THE KNOWLEDGEABLE SOMMERLIER!
Another touch we noticed that was new since our last visit was new pool and beach furniture, some very solid and comfortable pergolas are a great addition, complimented by the new sun-brellas! Quality touches.
In the rooms there are other pleasant surprises including fresh ground coffee, a french press and fresh milk in the fridge (rather than those small single serve sachets you usually get in hotel rooms!).
One thing has not changed since our last visit and that is the genuine warmth, friendliness and consistently helpful staff. From the room cleaners, to the restaurant staff, front desk, groundkeepers and beach attendants, every single staff member we interacted with was friendly and accommodating, and importantly for us, they expressed a natural confidence in their interactions with us which was engaging, fun and professional. It really is the staff that make Ti Kaye special (as well as its stunning location), and new General Managers - Chris and Sarah are also hugely attentive and professional, a definite positive addition to the Ti Kaye family.
