Visited the place on 25th December with my family. The grounds and the pool are well maintained But the customer service from waiters and waitresses is pathetic. The food was terrible the only thing that saved the day was the good dessert. Overall wouldn't recommend someone to visit them during festive season.

Last year I held my graduation party at the resort and I must say it was simply the best. From the amazing food!! Still salivating to the decor and very professional staff. I'd highly recommend Elysian for any of your parties/functions. I also appreciated the customer service.

The overall experience was amazing, I hosted my wedding there,the grounds are lush green and the scenery is awesome. The food was great and my guests really enjoyed. Special thanks to Dennis for the good co-ordination of the team. This location is also perfect,away from the hustle of the city.

The grounds are well maintained, was particularly happy about the little rose garden in the middle of the wedding grounds. Dennis was very very helpful. Highly recommended for intimate garden weddings.

Planned and coordinated a wedding held at Elysian Resort on 20th November 2020. Dennis, the Digital Marketing Manager, was a gem on the day. He was helpful and quick to resolve any emerging issues during the event. His amiable personality and his extra mile kind of service undoubtedly made the day a great success. Rose, the Food & Beverage Manager, took over when Dennis’s shift ended, and she was just as amazing as him. Chef Rashid did a fantastic job with the menu. The wedding dinner was tasty, hot, and served on time. The serving portions were decent as well. Edmond, the assigned waiter, resolved various ad hoc requests throughout the day and did it all with a genuine smile on his face. Together with Michael, they made a great pair. These five staff truly made the experience at Elysian Resort pleasantly memorable. Hats off to them!

I went there with my 1yr old and they didn’t have any high chairs. In 2020, what kind of resort or restaurant doesn’t have high chairs for children? So basically this place isn’t great for families. The steak that my mom ordered was tough. Must’ve been from an old cow. Which tells you that the chef there doesn’t source for his meat. Just buys whatever is offered. The ground were well manicured, but there’s a huge water feature in the middle, again, making it unsafe for young children.

The resort is one of the Catholic faith based with prayer rooms. There swimming pool is just the best to relax and the rooms are well furnished. The gardens are well manicured and serene. It's situated in a very quiet place and also offers conference faclities. Nice place

Everything is close to perfect, except for the getting lost even with the aid of Google Maps..The environs look unsafe, especially if you are driving around in the dark..The rough road from the junction is too hidden and confusing! Otherwise the food and service are worth what we paid for and experienced
