This hotel is really about the service! I felt like the owner really wanted me to have the best experience I could have on the island, and this came from a genuine kindness from him. He recommended great restaurants and things to do based on my interests. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious, but it's really about the service here. The breakfast fruit bowl with yogurt and muesli was amazing as well!
I booked this place initially because of the location (walking distance from cafes/restaurants and yoga classes) and based on previous reviews. I can honestly say that any expectations I had were exceeded. Host and his wife go out of their way on a daily basis to make you feel welcome and that all of your needs are met: I was given an island map with some very useful tips on places to visit, you can conveniently rent a scooter at the property, enjoy continental breakfast in the morning (even later in the day if your morning is busy or you oversleep), the room was spacious and bright, thoroughly cleaned each day, mini bar available, WiFi connection was great for online work and streaming. On the first day of my arrival I straight away extended my stay based on all of the above. There is a cafe on the opposite side of the road for those working days on your computer and more coffee, yoga and retreat centre located 500m away, a convenience store too. It is one of the few places I would happily come back to. Thank you for such a great stay!…
Love that the hotel is close enough to town area, nearby the main roads, close enough to the ocean to see some sea views, but quiet enough for a good holiday retreat. Lovely couple running the hotel and they are absolutely wonderful hosts. The breakfast is wonderful, and for anybody who cares about coffee in the morning - they do offer good freshly grounded coffee! Very clean rooms and cute resident cats on-site too. Definitely coming back if I'm visiting the Island again.
From the moment we arrived to the very end, we experienced the best service we've had. We're world travelers and have been to over thirty countries. The hospitality you get here is top notch and makes you feel so welcome. The owner and his wife are lovely people and always great you kindly. He cooks and AMAZING breakfast too!! The room was spotless and beautiful. The grounds make it feel like a slice of jungle heaven. The host even checks your scooter tires to make sure you're safe! I can go on and on about how amazing this place is, and it happens to be in the best little neighborhood with restaurants and beautiful beaches. It's hard to leave this place. Also, the wifi is super fast!!
Delicious breakfasts are a must and can be found here. Whatever you’re fond of - an omelette with cheese, scrambled eggs, pancakes with sweet milk or muesli with fresh fruits (my favorite, by the way) are amazing here at Shanti. All of them include pretty good coffee or tea. What can I say about the hotel? We did not stay here but got aquatinted with the owners Konstantin and Eugenia. They’re also responsible for the comfy, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. It’s the place you’d be willing to come back again and again. Om Shanti! :)
