Concierge.com's insider take:
This exclusive luxury hotel is on prime real estate right on Marine Drive, commanding a view of the Arabian Sea. The hotel is small, with a glass-fronted exterior and a modern marble lobby. Two capsule elevators flank a shell-shaped interior waterfall. From the lounge, you can gawk at guests swimming in the glass-bottomed pool on the fifth floor. The 68 rooms are small but comfortable; 40 of them are suites.The Oriental Blossom restaurant serves excellent Chinese food. The hotel service is efficient and courteous. The only drawback is that on weekends, the lobby lounge can be crowded with sightseers from Marine Drive.
