One of the most amazing places…from the booking process, arrival checkin, room detail and meals were just stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The attention to detail is remarkable. This is one of those places that is just unforgettable.

Incredible experience upon arriving at hotel- we were treated with grace. We were provided with place to relax and enjoyed lovely lunch before checking in. Beautiful rooms, very spacious and we love the feel of coming home. We have had the most magical visit – everyone was incredibly kind and responsive- they recognised us and called us by name.

Thank you! from the bottom of our hearts, you have made our honeymoon incredible! You have been the most hospitable crew I`ve ever encountered. I have travelled for work. I`ve been to 35 countries and you have made my stay truly amazing. I will speak highly of everyone here and I guarantee you that I will return, and stay for a much longer time. Thank you all.

Starting with the welcome as we stepped out of the taxi, we felt like the special guests of the evening. Food was great and prices were more than fair. But the best, besides the overall atmosphere, was the hospitality of the waitresses who made us feel being at home, well, at a luxurious version of it. We definitely will come back again!

What a wonderful experience. Such a beautiful tranquil environment to have lunch. The venue is stunningly decorated, the attention to detail perfect, lovely soft music. Each and every staff member smiling and friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent, well prepared and presented and so tasty. I will definitely be recommending La Residence to everybody.

La Residence is where you come to put your soul into repose after the energy of a place like The Silo.
