We stayed at this property around end August 2012. To start with the Hotel impressed us to the core. Truly living to up to its name on the face. Having booked a suite, the troubles started right from the time the luggagage was moved in. The 1st suite had toilets who's doors had no handles. We were moved promptly into another one, which however wasnt much better. We decided to chose this anyways. The surprise element didnt elude us here. The water in the bath, hardly drained, leading to flooding. The cupboard door didnt open much (leaing it useless) as the overhead false ceiling prevented it from going its full course. And guess what ,one of the toilets had no locks.
I must appreciate however, that the staff was cooperative enough. Infact they had hardly much to offer than feel sympathetic towards our plight. Adding to the list of things I must appreciate, is the lovely green sit outs, the beautiful meditation place, the breathtaking design of the lobbies and great decorative lightings to add to the beauty.
Come next day and the checkout, and this was the worst that one could imagine. While our bags were picked up and loaded into the car, to our surprise one piece short. On trying to figure out where the bag was misplaced / left, we got to know that our luggage was put in someone elses car and that the gentleman had already reached Ghoti by then. So the expedition - recovery started, and we had to waste a good 2-3 hrs to get our bags back.
Thus came an end to our forgettable experience with St. Laurn, which we felt should have been the best so far.
Dont think we will ever be adventurous enough to stay here again.
Hope the Hotel guys figure out the problems and fix it, Else it is such a collossal waste of an excellent effort put in by the management.
