I tired the Sweedish massage @ Amirtam Spa. Alena who attended the massage was great. Loved the peaceful ambience too. Absolutely relaxing. I had a severe lower back pain and she focussed more on that when requested. I feel great at the end of the massage and still wanting more :) Definitely i would visit the spa again and highly recommend Alena. Thanks for a great service.

I stayed here just for a night while I was attending an event in neighbourhood. The hotel comes to life post sunset as lights and concrete have an interesting play of texture, look and feel. In the day time, one can say the hotel is very grey and bland but that's probably how it was made. I liked the space and the grandeur of it but there is a problem. Even though, its on pretty much 2 floors, it's not Friendly for people with limited mobilities or old people as rooms are pretty far and one needs to walk a lot plus stairs are everywhere. They don't allow golf carts dropping guests to their rooms (I think they can actually do this because they do have the space). The most I saw was the cart taking us to the beach shack. When we requested them to drop us back to reception, he refused. Overall, service is very impersonal and almost basic for an Intercontinental. Our room was big in size. Very nicely done. If base category room is this size then I can imagine what suites look like.Loved their body wash and lotion. Its high end for sure. Interesting concept of no door in bathroom but a massive curtain which also does the job. Food wise: Breakfast is good. Huge spread. Service was nice too. Asian restaurant: Food was average. Nothing to write about. Spa: I took services of Mr. Thotmaya. Definitely in my top 10 massages of all times. He was so good, professional, polite and knew what he was doing. Overall, my experience at the hotel was was average considering the price point.

We're on a business meeting with an overnight stay! Have visited IHG a couple of times before the pandemic and this is the first visit after the pandemic I could see some maintenance is really needed for the property, starting from the lobby to the conference room and also the rooms! Even though the standards are high, a little disappointed was there for me! The room in which I was staying was leaking due to rain, during the conference twice a bat came from somewhere inside which doesn't make it feel good with such high standard brand IHG. On the other hand, hospitality-wise, Mr. Chandru, who was supporting the event and Mr. Manoj, the event manager both supported well throughout the event, which had to be mentioned here. Coming to the buffet, the quality was good but somehow missed that punch in the food which was served! Overall, I could rate okayish for this time!
