The Calm plays a special role in having the best part of the beach out of all the hotels, where you have a broad beach which is very safe to have a bath and take part in other recreational activities. The Calm Resort and Spa within a very short period of time has come a long way and we have been place number three on Tripadvisor and we have achieved Travellers Choice 2017 and Service Excellence 2015, 2016 and 2017, and that is because of the service of my team. Because I believe in the skills of local staff and I have recruited most of my staff from the locality.

In 2017 we saw a growth in occupancy, and the hotel mostly gets European clientele, after European clientele we get locals, but now we are planning to bring in Chinese, because our highest tourism influx is from China. We are planning a mega event for Chinese New Year in February next year. I want to make this hotel the best hotel the area, not with facilities itself, but also with service. When we say ‘The Calm’, the name itself speaks for the quality of calmness offered by the resort, and we are excelled in our service.”

The Calm Resort and Spa also offers a wide array of recreational activities, just like its sister hotel The Paradise Resort and Spa.

However, some excursions that The Calm offers are unique to the resort itself. Some such activities are; Diving and snorkelling – if you want to go beyond the crisp blue waters and explore the deep sea world and experience aquatic creatures with the naked eye, and boating and water sports – the fun and exciting adrenaline pumping excursions that you can participate in, if you dare.

The Calm Resort and Spa is truly a place to be, a place that your life deserves to be in and look at and feel, because an experience like this is not one you’d get to see every day. The Calm is truly filled with thrills.
