Excellent pick up from airport and transfer to resort. Accommodation not as expected and needs updating (floating cottages). Was upgraded but still could not describe as luxury.
Overall service of staff was excellent. Food was varied and very good.
The location of the resort is very good if you want a laid back, quiet holiday (which we did) but might suit families with small children. The isolation of the resort gives you a different aspect to India and is not like the India of the cities and other hotels. If you did not leave the resort you wouldn't know that you had been in India. Excellent service provided by the catering staff, the housekeeping staff and particularly the customer service manager (Vivek Nair) and the general manager.
