Had great expectations from this place. Does have spectacular views but it ends there. Food is by far the worse I have had at any similar hotel. The variety in the buffet is limited and not at par with the pricing. The food is bland and most of it cold. The service is in consistent too. There were two ladies... More

For the price I would expect good quality food and a good spread. Very few dishes, U can see lot of salads to make it look like lot of dishes are there, but very few actual dishes. Live couter had just Paw Bhaji and Kheema bhaji. U can get a much better deal within trivandrum at a much lesser price,... More

The restaurant by the pool and a great view of the Arabian Sea is just relaxing. The restaurant servers South Indian, North Indian and Continental food. The spread is good and the live kitchen offers great S.Indian specialities like the Dosa, Aappam, etc. The only disturbance is sometimes a crow or some bird entering the area - even though there...

I enjoyed the ambiance of the place,the property is excellent except the "just learning"staff.One example is they take a lot of time to serve the food ordered.If you complain you can notice that at the same time three people will bring it one by one for you the same food you have ordered a clear example of lack of communication...

Spectacular view from the sky bar is something u got to see. And if your timing is perfect then u can enjoy the sunset sipping your drinks. Don't miss the happy hours from 4 pm to 7 pm. But the beer menu is limited only 2 were available except those everything including the service was excellent.
