Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.

Homemade knives set in a block of wood allows them to slice and dice the fish in seconds…..from shrimps to huge tuna it all actually ...
... but the Indian version – with houses from various areas of India and backgrounds into different ways people live and lived. It was super cool and i had some coconut water straight from a coconut while we were there (I’d been seeing them all over India but never tried).
Naren treated us to a very western meal at a posh looking place where we dined on some tasty garlicy bruschetta, mozerrella sticks, seafood cocktail, sea bass and a chicken ...

About ten minutes before landing the Andermans come into view...it's stunningly beautiful. I hadn't realised there were quite so many little islands here. We touch down and are invited to take a seat to complete the immigration formalities - very civilised. We have to complete a form which is taken away with our passports and returned with a permit allowing us to visit most areas for a maximum of one month.

India is a delight to the senses and a ********coction of noise and aromas. Surprisingly, I did not experience "Delhi belly".
So I sticked to bottled waters, and the franchise chain restaurants were a safe choice to eat at during the week.
There were countless tuk tuks, children, food stands, mango lassi stalls and stray dogs. And there's a sense of colour both in the ...
... 7 weeks in India. No-way long enough. India is such a beautiful interesting country. We've been so lucky to see SOOO much in such a short amount of time but yet so much has been missed too. The German lady we got speaking to whilst waiting for a bus in Appalley couldn't believe we had never made it to Hampi so she recommended we visit Mamallapurum before we get to Chennai, we are not sure whats there but here goes! Sea breeze annexe hotel with JUST A FAN. Why oh why did we try A/C in ...
