I decided to book this for me and my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary. I booked the Romance at 51 package.
I found the entire booking process very easy and communication via email very quick and efficient.
The suite itself is lovely and the fruit platter is a nice touch. No need to pack bathroom essentials, the Molton Brown products are lovely and well stocked.
Staff are great and very helpful. My only slight annoyance was that although booking in advance and checking with the spa what times are available, when we ran a little late and informed them, we were told that they wouldn't be able to get the treatment ready because there is preparation time. I was a little confused with this as surely the prep work would be done before we got there. However, they were helpful enough and we moved the treatments to the following day.
It is worth pointing out that the spa is a short walk across the courtyard. Lockers are available and robes and towels are provided. I found my treatment was very good and I definitely felt better after.
The canapes were lovely and once again the staff were very welcoming and friendly. I did feel at ease and you can tell there is a focus on delivering a great experience. This was demonstrated when I ordered breakfast to the suite very last minute and the staff were more than happy to prepare and bring it up for us. I was very impressed.
You also have access to the DVD library. Soft drinks and popcorn are also complimentary. This gets two thumbs up.
This was well worth the spend and I have always been impressed with the Taj. I can't wait to stay again.
