Radisson hides more than it reveals. What you see in the open is the luxurious feel one gets to expect in a 5-star ambience, but what lies hidden is equally, if not more, worthwhile. The hotel is so structured to make you feel that space is the most ostentatious luxury. For the discerning tourist, Radisson offers ample opportunities to escape the tourists and head for solitude. Here, one can easily and instantly flip into vacation mode and become one with the super secluded spaces. Radisson offers multiple choices of local treats that are not easily forgotten. Rating: 4/5.
For the modern tourist, the proof of the palate is not in the taste, but in taste and health. Radisson’s specialty is its uncanny ability to create a multi-cuisine that meets the best of both worlds, i.e. it’s tasty AND healthy. You can’t think of beginning the day without a sumptuous breakfast served in the bright sunflower-themed coffee shop. An exotic mix of fine cuisine and beverages are available at Radisson’s restaurants, an elegant bar, casual tea/coffee lounge and poolside barbecue.Rating: 4/5.
Price: A little on the high side, but affordable if you are looking for a holiday you want to remember for a lifetime. Rating: 4/5.
