Amazing stay

Hong Kong, China

We had an awesome experience overall. Below are the highlights - 1. Star gazing - we saw the Milky Way with naked eyes and the lady was showed and gave us talk about the stars were truly a wonderful experience. 2. Many lovely animals like deers we saw as we walked around, we visited the organic farm onsite. We also did a hike around the property. Its so peaceful and chilled. 3. Infinity plunge pool - it was cold outside but hot inside the pool, amazing to just chill. 4. Dinner - wish they have a lar carte but ambience was nice, Hope there’s more to choose from in the menu. 5. Service - service was very good which was in line with our expectations. 6. Yoga class - a good stretching and relaxing class.

Greenwich, Connecticut

Yes, breathtaking! Customer service is high on our checklist and the staff does not disappoint. Truly spectacular service. I wish we could bring you every where we stay. Gracious and attentive without suffocating us. PRI is perched overlooking the pacific ocean. Yoga in the mornings. Massages in the room. Growing up in California, gazing out onto Big Sur is always a spiritual experience. We stayed in an exquisite upper level Pacific room. The fireplace, the soaking tub on the balcony were impressive. Tip: If you favor expensive wines, suggest you BYOB to the restaurant and pay for corkage. It can get pretty pricey.
