In August, which happened to be Ramadan, me and my wife decided to have buffet Iftar (breakfast at sunset) after a long, hot day of fasting. We arrived at the hotel half an hour early, valet parking was quick, and the staff at the reception invited us for a hotel tour. We explored every bit of the hotel, rooms, restaurants, spa, activities, etc and we even discussed the future plans of the hotel. The hotel is beautiful and modern and horse racing fans would certainly enjoy the stay.
When time came for buffet, we experienced service that I doubt any hotel around the world could offer. It is important to note that I was going through the early stages of a flu. I made this clear to the chef and kitchen staff in order to avoid cold drinks.
The chef recommended food to me that could boost my immune system which was already in the buffet. Then, the chef dissappeared for a few moment and came back with a special warm drink (milk, dates, spices, etc) and offered it to us for free.
The buffet is best described as something for everyone with a variety of local and international dishes and desserts. We felt at home dining on perfectly prepared and presented food.
Once we finished dining, we were approached by a doctor from the Hotel who did what you could expect from a clinic or hospital (measuring blood pressure, temperature, etc). He provided medical advice and gave me medicine to take with me (for free!!!!).
Would I go back? Of course!
