Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is clean and nicely decorated but many areas were under construction outdoors. It was monsoon season and so only 2 restaurants were open which was disappointing to us.

This is an excellent hotel. The kids suite is very comfortable if you are travelling with kids and the kids loved sleeping in bunk beds. The complimentary breakfast buffet spread was excellent and although we did not have the buffet meals the candlelight dinner we had at their Fish Grill restaurant at the beach under the stars was excellent. The staff were very courteous and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. It would have been nice however if they had provided us with complimentary drop-off and pick-up from the airport.

Though the overall property is good and lives up to expectation of a 5-star, the rooms are quite basic and do not seem to give a feeling of spending a holiday in a 5-star. However, the overall stay was value for money. In case one is considering a quite and peaceful holiday, then this may not be the right choice as Holiday Inn Resort seems to be always crowded as it offers competitive rates.

It was a great stay at this resort. I stayed with my family for 3 nights and 4 days. The room service was prompt and excellent, great food, beautiful property, clean private beach. Business centre facility was also available at reasonable rates. The resort has a health centre, swimming pool, restaurant and discotheque. Overall excellent.

The driveway is beautiful with colonial lights fitted all along the way. A big garden adorns the porch and a flight of stairs leads you to the reception and the lobby. The lobby is enclosed on one end by the reception, while the other end is the domicile for the many souvenir shops selling antique jewellery, pashmina shawls and other crafts. A local musician playing the saxophone or some other form of live melodious music is always present to welcome guests to the resort. The lobby is balconied, so if you look down, the Cafe Mardi Grass, a multi cuisine restaurant, with provision for indoor and outdoor seating beckons you for a pleasurable dining experience. Beyond the balcony lies the swimming pool, an indulgence in itself and a beauty to behold. The swimming pool is jeweled with the pool bar, serving exotic drinks. A stone cobbled pathway alongside the pool (on both sides) leads to The Fish Grill, a seafood specialty restaurant serving local and international flavours.
