The cocktail bar is intimate and inviting with subtle lighting and tasteful decor.
The well-arranged grounds are spacious and relaxing with a pier like walkway leading above the waterside promenade. The pool is of a generous size for the number of units and there is a giant chess set at the point where the property connects with the Eden Mar. Mature shrubs, flowering plants and tall palms add to the sub tropical ambiance.
