Built in 1864, this grand old dame by the sea has had a facelift in 2005. With new rooms in a new wing. It's still nice to see the old elevators, the octogenarian doorman the quirky English sense of humour here and there - Upstairs, in the corridor of the old wing, a sign reads "Please don't smoke in bed because the ashes we find may be yours"

My husband proposed to me here and it couldn't have been more beautiful. We stayed in the Royal Thai Suite and it was amazing. The food is delicious and the entertainment was lovely. However, when we first checked in, we were given a regular standard room and it wasn't nice at all. The upgrade to the suite made up for it.

While I had no money to stay here, I did enjoy having a drink at the very colonial bar and having a swim in their poll that runs right along side the Indian Ocean.
This was a refuge from the heat and dust of the city.
