This is an exceptional place: really ambitious and stylish statement about where modern India is headed. The Indian design, taste and service is not drowned out but well supported by the relentless USian process and standards.
I find formulaic USian mechanised service irritating, but this facility is just a different world from where we spent the previous night. Food is exhilarating, room design, materials, layout, location, swimming pool all full of delightful surprises and really well executed. Service is beyond courteous. Special mention to Suresh for a fun archery class.
It feels as if this is the early investment stage of a huge long term project. Everyone's enthusiasm is still palpable. Not a trace of complacency or boredom. Who knows how long this spirit can be maintained but at this moment this place offers an exceptional experience.
[PS: I have to say, if you find yourself moaning about staying here take a long look in the mirror, and try sharing a day or two of life with 1bn Indians living outside the gates...]
