Exhilarating, Exciting and Thoroughly Enjoyable
We really had an Amazing time. Thanks a lot for everyone for making our stay very memorable. One of the best part of our stay was, we were upgraded to higher category of accommodation. We really can't Thank You enough for this awesome gesture. Unfortunately, I don't remember the names of all staff we interacted with. I wish I had put in more efforts to ask for their names and remember them. Anyway, here are few names I do remember. Our interaction with sous chef Mr. Tapan Sahoo were very heart-warming. Steward/ Waiter/ Attendant Mr. Gopi served us very efficiently during all our visits to the Sea Gull restaurant. House keeper Mr. George made sure that we were very comfortable in our room. All other staff - front desk officials (Bikram, Sweety, Jyothsna?), room service attendants, life guards at beach and pool, buggy chauffeurs, security guards, other stewards, spa/ saloon employees (Waseem), laundry manager and so on contributed to our comfortable stay in your beautiful property. Thanks a lot to each one of them. Following are not complaints but just for your reference: TV volume in room 105 was very low. Since we stayed there just for one day, we didn't report it for getting it corrected. Hot water was not coming in the shower of C 04. However, it was coming in Wash basin and bath tub. So we didn't face much problems. One suggestion - We are strict vegetarians and also we love Indian cuisine more than any other cuisine. Since choice for both of these was very very limited in Bay View and Upper Deck, we couldn't visit those restaurants though we very much wanted to. If you have received such suggestions from others also, maybe you can take a look at doing something about it OR start another restaurant for vegetarian/ Indian cuisine in a similar setup. Later we came to know that our honorable prime minister Mr. Modi and President of China had stayed in your property during their summit. We felt very happy regarding the same. Once again, Thanks a lot to everyone for making our stay in Taj, TAJ (Terrific, Amazing and Joyful) :D
