    This picturesque hotel offers luxury accommodation to corporates and tourists alike. They also have conferencing facilities and are able to host small functions with the best view ever. Gorgeous finishes, artwork and luxury living across the board. Definitely worth the stay.

    Only made use of the conferencing facilities. Nice Sound system and multimedia projector. Suitable for a group of 10/15. Quiet and comfortable. Enough safe parking for conference participants. Nice pool area.
