This was the starting point of our holiday. After a long flight from London, we were greeted warmly, got an early check-in and taken straight to our room. We were in a club room- beautifully kitted out and had access to the club lounge. Everyone was very helpful and went out of their way for us- organising taxis, booking restaurants etc... Breakfast the next day was spectacular- the best I've seen anywhere. The spa and gym were also right at the very top of hotel facilities. We didn't use the rooftop pool as it was too cold but it looked like it would be great in the summer.
Our one gripe was that the a la carte Indian restaurant claimed to be "full" when we went for dinner because we didn't have a reservation, despite the fact that we specifically asked whether we needed to book when we arrived and were told we didn't during the week. After a lot of fuss and a 20 minute wait, we were eventually given a table. It was all very odd, particularly because 70% of the tables were vacant the whole evening.
Other than that, a great place to start our trip and would highly recommend- just make sure you book for dinner!
