True 5 star experience

Posted 19-Sep-2016
Amazing hotel, clean beach with crystal blue waters. Friendly staff and great restaurants. One area of improvement would be to provide hotel guests with a free shuttle ride to Victoria once or twice a day, since the hotel is located far away from all the main attractions of mahe island

Nice hotel in the south of an island

Posted 15-Sep-2016
We had a room with the sea view, was amazing, didn't really use the terrace, as there are sun beds on the beach which is just in the front. Hotel has great facilities, full program for different activities. Yoga on the hill is highly recommended. Very friendly stuff. Room was cleaned once a day and in the evening they used to come to set it up for the night. Soft drinks are free in the mini bar and given everyday. Breakfast has a big choice for everyone, also they are serving champagne And few cocktails :) Overall very nice stay!! Would come back again.

Pros: spacious rooms, beach, breakfast.
Cons: they could kill the bugs and lizards.
The hotel is nice and comfortable. However, there is not much to do around the hotel. The beach is nice but not suitable for swimming.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. I am glad to read you enjoyed the beach and the room as well as our breakfast buffet. Hence I regret to read you felt disturbed by lizards; however as they are protected animals we are not able to remove them. We hope for your understanding. Again thank you for staying with us and we are looking forward to welcoming you back. Best regards, Masami Egami General Manager

Great hotel with amazing staff.

Posted 29-May-2016
Pros: Staff were superb, really well looked after and very polite / personable.
Cons: food drink prices in the hotel were excessive.
Location: Great position for beach, would recommend car to see Victoria, botanical gardens, and boat trip to see other islands.
The first thing with the hotel is a great location with the beach literally right outside. The staff in the hotel are what really makes the stay special. From the first day we were known by name and were looked after for our every need. There are numerous restaurants and a great bar so you would never need to leave the hotel. We rented a car which I would recommend as it would be difficult otherwise to get around the island and much better drinks / meals deals are available in other restaurants. Having said that the meals we had in the hotel were really good albeit a little pricey. The only thing I would say is that the prices in the hotel were over the top having said that you are staying in a 5 star hotel with a great location.

Pros: The service was great! Rooms are very nice!
Cons: N/A
Location: Not much to do in this area but nice hotel over all.
This hotel was very nice. Staff are great. Pool and beach are nice. Very family oriented. Not much to do around the area but great hotel over all. Amazing first impression Room: we got a sea view room. It was large very nice the view was fantastic. daily service very good Food. Average- my tip is to get the half or full board option as the restaurants are very expensive. We had all our meals in the main buffet restaurant. It was truly 5 start quality every day. Overall we had a fantastic stay in Kempinsky

A week in a high end resort?

Posted 09-May-2016 on Hotels
Excellent kids club and kids minders, great beach service guys, beach cafe (Windsong) tasty but very expensive and no whole grilled fish, reception bar - good musical groups every night but some nights exceptionally slow service and drinks quite expensive, breakfast buffet tasty and filling, beach front amenities complete but sometimes difficult to check out, an only passable Padi dive center attached, great turtle feeding for the kids, our 9 year old daughter could roam freely without our concern for her safety, one excellent restaurant (Maria's Rock Cafe) with decent prices within walking distance, very good beach and mostly private location.
