We decided the be the first few to visit the hotel after it's opening. The locations is truly outstanding. We booked a mesa view room.The rooms are spacious perfectly designed and pretty well stocked. Some more amenities would be nice but it does not detract from the experience. All of the public areas are centered around a magnificent pool and hot tub and the lobby which encompasses a library, a sitting area with fire places and the one and only restaurant. The ambiance is warm and airy with all floor to ceiling windows to highlight the views. Some nice touches are present here, like various books, a sound system and a focal open kitchen that you can seat on and chat with the chefs.
The service in the other hand is far from standard aman level and understandably so since they are still trying to get the operation going. Most of the staff seems to be suffering from rabbit in the headlights syndrome. They seem confused as to how to best go about their duties. Simple mistakes like serving the wrong food items or placing them on the wrong customer. General knowledge of the operation is also scarce. I'm sure over the season they will be able to to fully staff the operation and the kinks in the service will be resolved. If you are interested in visiting this property do not let these minor details change you mind since the prices will go significantly higher once they are running full steam.
