Took a long awaited break over christmas and the new year. Booked with Thomson which provide a direct flight. I would recommend upgrading to Premium Club on this long haul flight. Despite being their new Dreamliner, the seats are not too comfortable for the 11 hour flight. The Goldi Sands hotel is ideally located for a short transfer from the...

Daily breakfast buffet is exquisite, staff friendly and attentful. I had an 8hrs show of my art there upon invitation of the General Manager Mr. Lal who saw me often eating there. The dining rooms are sumptuous with nice sea and beach view, with splendid sunsets when it does not rain, of course.

We travelled here with Thomson's on an AI basis. The hotel is small & fairly basic, but clean and with excellent friendly staff. The food was very good,particularly the local style ( if you like curry) though a little repetitive after two weeks. The Christmas and NYE Gala dinners were spectacular and a credit to all the staff.
