have had the privilege to stay in the Four Seasons
this year. Not
much time to enjoy the beach, the swimming pool - the
refs have - or the SPA - the players rave about it, in
particular the 20 jets showers, or the massage in the stunning
salon. Inshallah next year...
But. I had the delight
to enjoy all the benefits of staying in a top hotel. What
impresses me is their attention to detail.
For example, you won't find cleaners carts in the corridors.
They come with big baskets, and go from door to door, only a
little sign on the door indicates their presence...
And you know if you travel a lot like we do, there is always
something missing after they leave: the milk hasn't been
replaced, or towels are missing, etc. Here, none of that.
Everything is where it should be. Every day. Twice a day.
door is at the end of a corridor, a corner room. So it's very
quiet. The bathroom is a dream, bathtub AND shower, separate
Big wardrobe, lovely tea/coffee stand with the latest nespresso
machine for coffee lovers - I asked for a kettle, within
minutes, I was having my cupper...
I asked for a wake up call for example - and I was asked if I
wanted my phone line cut, and reminded to put a sign on my
door... Bless them.
And the breakfast is an experience I strongly recommend: I still
have tears in my eyes when I think of the Renaissance in Hong
Kong. No more tears. Four Seasons beats it by a mile. Their dim
sum/noodle station is unparalleled in my experience...
lift is also well thought. Not only beautifully crafted, but the
you press on the call button, you are indicated
which lift will arrive for you.
You do not have to go from one to the next and keep an eye where
the first door will open - and sometimes miss the bleeping
thing! A little bip and light warn you where to wait. Attention
security is very high - both to get in the building or get to
the rooms - the place is airy, light, beautiful, the beds are to
sleep for, the linen and towels of the highest quality.
Only Cubs can find something wrong: apparently, he likes to
sleep with the curtains open, but the evening maid comes and
closes them for you...
