          Does anybody know if when they renovate this hotel if they will open the indian restaurant which is in the other excellence resorts. I Hope they do as i love this resort but thinking of trying one of the others as they seem to have more restaurant options.

          Not sure, you may want to email the resort before they close.

          How deep is the private pool with garden view

          Pool is 5 ft deep at most. It stretches for a good length- also, had quiet places with less people; or a wet bar and volleyball area for fun.
