An upmarket luxury-orientated establishment with varying categories of accommodation ranging from standard rooms and suites to luxurious villas with a private pool. The stylish and elaborate decor and comfortable furnishings add a sense of wellbeing throughout the communal areas and the pool and spa facilities are particularly impressive.

Exterior

There are three main sections of the vast property all sharing the same grounds and communal areas. The hotel is rather bland in appearance with recessed balconies and many rooms overlooking the street and neighbouring properties. Discerning travellers tend to stay in the upmarket looking palace section and those wanting privacy and the extremes of luxury stay in the secluded villas. Entry is along a short drive to an impressive wide canopied entrance. A casino is situated to one side.
