I am shocked at the two times I have called this hotel to inquire about pricing. First they quoted $350 for a la carte ie, the room with classes, and $465 for meals also. The next time I called, they said it was $575 for the meals. Why would I pay $225 for meals each day. Are they really that... More

We dined at Travaasa Friday night with life long friends from Minnesota. We were there early enough to enjoy the 5-6 "meet and greet" where we enjoyed wine, cheese, and vegetables with dips. The staff was exceptionally welcoming. Dinner was beyond all expectations - each of us had a separate starter and a separate entree. Edward paired every plate with... More

Fantastic Dinner and Wine with the finest chef and sommelier we have had the pleasure of meeting. Each dish was paired perfectly with wine and served beautifully. We watched the dinners being prepared as the kitchen was in plain sight of all the dinner guests. It was a truly marvelous experience. Thank you Travaasa.

We just got home from Travaasa. Wow! What an experience. The food was delicious and flavorful, the service was impeccable and friendly and the spa was unbelievably wonderful.

I'd never been to a place like Travaasa, which is basically a day camp for adults, and it was amazing. The service was great - no tips accepted by bellhops, they quickly brought us a refrigerator when we called down, bucket of beer waiting for us when we arrived. Dinner was phenomenal - we'd heard mixed reviews from friend who... More
