We have just returned from 8 idyllic days at the So Sofitel and have just loved every minute of it.The hotel is set in vast beautiful gardens and along a pristine beach.It doesn't matter where you decide to step into the warm clear sea the most fantastic and easily accessible snorkeling is on your doorstep.There is a wide range of complimentary water sports.Steve from the Water Sports team needs a special mention here for taking us out on several fishing trips around the lagoon. It is so peaceful it is easy to feel you have the whole hotel to yourself.
The restaurants are excellent.The food is delicious,the setting is beautiful and the staff just want to please.A very special mention must go to Ashlen from the restaurant.He knew what we wanted even before we did!!! And his happy personality brought an extra dimension to an excellent meal.
One negative here is the wine is far too expensive.
The Spa is heavenly and although it seemed a bit pricey there were special offers every day.
The rooms are fab - very stylish.The bed is so so comfy.The bathroom comes in 3 parts, a full stunning inside bathroom ,an outdoor shower garden at the back and a bath tub for 2 in the front garden.A very relaxing way to end a relaxing day!! The technology in the bedroom is mind boggling -a TV with internet capability, a Bose IPod interface and CD player and a lighting system that was so intricate that after 8 nights I still didn't understand it.
A special mention here needs to go to our butlers Dinesh and Vijay who not only took care of the day to day running of our room but also provided lots of special extras - from running flower filled bubble baths for us, filling the room with flowers, candles and a star making machine, bringing daily handmade chocolates , leaving beautiful fruit platters etc etc
The entire staff of nearly 200 went out of their way to make our holiday special and they succeeded.
Well done Piotr (The manager) you lead a wonderful team in a heavenly venue.
