Our four night stay at the Carnoustie Beach Resort & Ayurveda Spa was truly unforgettable. The property itself is absolutely stunning from the impressive front entrance and the open air reception area to the beatifully landscaped grounds and handsome swimming pool. The villa we stayed in was spacious and well appointed with an enormous bathroom. The restaurant was breathtaking with its open air design and bamboo construction and the spa was very impressive. The beauty of the property was only exceeded by the service we received during our stay. We cannot say enough about the concierge who made our comfort his primary concern during our visit. Perhaps the most impressive display of his commitment to service was that he personally picked us up at our villa in a golf cart at 4:45 am and sent us on the way to the airport with a package of food and drink. Equally attentive was the restaurant manager who consulted with us daily about our meals. He planned a number of interesting menus for us, consisting largely of delicious local cuisine, which were executed to perfection by the chef and his staff. The food was superb without exception. Since the property will consist of only 40 villas upon completion, the Carnoustie is clearly committed to maintaining this level of service when it is fully built out. Our only regret was that our travel plans did not allow a longer stay at this truly unique and special property.
