“A Little Bit of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2005

Simply put, this is one of my favorite hotels in the world.

The staff is exceptional and consistently pleasant. The hotel assigns butlers to every floor of the hotel, so there is always someone to assist you -- whether it be room service or laundry needs. The hotel uses top quality toiletries, including some by Bvlgari, and the all marble bathroom is elegantly appointed, including enormous fog-free mirrors. There is a small sundries shop in the lobby and there's a travel agency on the premises. Internet service can be spotty, but that is more a function of the state of the country's telecom services than the hotel's technology. The gardens are beautifully maintained. The hotel has a fleet of air conditioned Volvo taxis that you can hire by the hour or just to drop you at your destination.

The restaurants (especially Shaheen and Stagioni) are fantastic. If you'd like to have a bite to eat poolside, Breezes is a fantastic place to spend your time in the "13 months of sunshine." If you're concerned about sun exposure, the staff will adjust the umbrellas there for you. Based on my experience, the raw vegetables in all of the Sheraton's restaurants are safe to eat.

I recommend requesting a room with a fountain view. These are on the back side of the hotel and provide stunning views of the mountains just beyond the city.

The only downside was that during my trip the hotel did not have a salon or spa on the premises, though massages and sauna are available near the pool area. Also, this hotel did not have a fitness facility during my last stay.

Have a macchiato at Fountain Court and then stroll out to the gardens to enjoy the fountain show synchronized to local and western music.

Although the rates are higher than all other hotels in the country, it's worth every penny. This is THE place to wake up after a 20 hour flight.
