I think you should look at the pics again. Puts any other resort I saw to shame- at least by comparing pics :P

$829 for off-season.
If they'll honor the 7 for 5 it's $592/night.
Plus free transfer, so $1,000 savings there compared to other resorts.

Reviews are top-notch:

Indeed.

You think Jetsetter can pull some strings to get a discounted rate for Dec/Jan. Worth a try ?

Taxes here are also cheap compared to other places. Conrad and Halaveli charge 18% for service and tax

Get back to me with the $600/night price is honored.

As for the pic that was posted, that was like the "Presidential Villa."

For off season, I don't think it's worth booking the taj, when you can stay at the below, which is a regular OWB for almost HALF the price:

I don't think it was the presidential suite- description said that it was deluxe lagoon view room- 1100 Square Feet!
