We have recently completed a 14 day holiday at the Oberoi. This was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and, given that its a special occasion, we wanted to choose a special hotel. And if you want special, somewhere to give you memories that last you a lifetime, then the Oberoi is the best choice you can make.
From the minute we arrived right until departure we were treated to impeccable service, excellent food and all of this in a stunning setting.
The rooms are great. A good size and always kept spotlessly clean. The food is outstanding. The breakfasts are varied and the food in the main restaurant is world class. We had our anniversary night dinner on the jetty. The staff laid candles out across the length of the pier and we had a fabulous evening. They also provided us with a glass of champagne, amazing flowers and a lovely anniversary cake. It is a pricey thing to do, but for a special occasion it's well worth it.
We also has a fabulous special Creole dinner in the Gunpowder room which was very special.
My wife used the spa several times and loved the treatments and pampering.
There are 2 beaches, one of which is for adults only and the service there is great. Ice cold water is provided along with occasional fruit kebabs and cocktails.
However by far the best thing about the Oberoi is the staff. We have stayed at many hotels, including other Oberoi ones and this is by far the best. The staff there know your names within minutes of your arrival. They quickly learn your food and drink preferences and cater for them. They have an uncanny knack of understanding your likes and dislikes and making sure everything is perfect. So thanks to Sonah, Prakash, Amanda, Ruby, Anesh, Ashna and Ralph and all the others too numerous to mention. You guys are the best!
This was illustrated one night when I mentioned I wanted to try a local beer that the hotel did not stock. The next day, while sitting by the pool, the young manager I had been talking to (Anesh) brought me two bottles of the beer on ice. He had clearly made a special trip to fetch the beer for me. Little touches like this made our trip an amazing one. On another night we were taken for a private tasting of the hotels home made Rum (well recommended).
We chatted to Marc, the excellent and attentive manager one day, and he mentioned that he knew that the Oberoi was not perfect but that they were striving for it. Well from our perspective, if this is not perfect then we don't know what is!
So, whilst the cost of the holiday is relatively expensive, we thought it was worth every penny. You get what you pay for! And we have already started saving up for our next visit.
