To say The Orient is just a hotel is an understatement. It is an experience.
We flew into the Lanseria airport and at the recommendation of the hotel were picked up by a private car service for our 30 minute ride to The Orient.
From the moment we were driven through the conservatory to the magnificent gated entrance we knew this was a very special place. There are trails to explore around the property with animals and birds along all the routes.The grounds are stunning with natural grasses, plants and vegetation growing wild in their natural environment, an Asian influenced garden with a Buddhist temple and meditation garden. Every corner was a place of beauty including the outside patio and intimate pool area.
We were welcomed by Surprise and she did such a wonderful job taking care of us for our entire stay. No request went unanswered. And the attention to detail that she supplied was what really made our stay incredible. Beautifully presented food at breakfast on our private balcony, drinks brought to our room to enjoy the sunset, a teddy bear with sprig of lavender placed inside a book of poetry and left on our bed during turn down service. So many things that mean so much.
We stayed in the Marrakesh Suite which is one of the nicest suites in the hotel. The suite which included a separate day-room was immediately beside the balcony and had a sitting area, a separate room with day bed and its own ensuite. Our main suite had a king size bed, writing desk, minibar and antique armoire. Being a corner suite it also had 4 large windows overlooking the mountains on one side and the valley on the other. Our large ensuite had two sinks, a free standing roman tub, padded bench, bidet, large shower with rainfall shower head and a separate room with a toilet.
The owner Mari, made sure to check in with us to ensure we were enjoying our stay. While we were only there for one night, it was a glorious stay. This is certainly a place to treasure and would be a wonderful treat for any special occasion.
