Took a day off from our daily buzz and headed to the Lagoon. We took advantage of the April New Year offer of 35% off and stayed at a Bawa room. We got a corner Bawa room and so the view was a wee bit boring. The room is extremely spacious and has a large window. Had we stayed in a pool facing room, I am sure it would have been more enjoyable. The pool is absolutely lovely (it's 100 m!!) and they have a very professional spa service which is top class. The breakfast and lunch buffet spreads were ample and had a nice choice. We were bit disappointed with the dinner spread - maybe it was just on the day that we stayed so it wouldn't be right to put this down as a negative. Since we got it at a discount and it was not much of a ride away for us, it was value-for-money or else it wouldn't really be on my top-hotels-to-go list. A small "oomph" missing somewhere, can't pin it to anything particular. However, a nice place for a day outing. More than a day, and you may get bored as there didn't seem to be many things to do in and around the hotel (apart from the swimming pool) of course. We did notice that the staff were not exceptionally attentive, they were polite but they lacked genuine warmth.
