The room was comfortable and spacious ||The double rooms need a table either side of the bed not just in the middle. The pool - so much to say. Too many people and kids for how small it is. The gold chairs and overall gold finishes are chipping and look cheap. Not enough lounges at all. Stinks of Clorine (ritz Carlton smells amazing it has managed to avoid the suffocating chlorine smell) I know it’s child free after 7pm however an adult only zone such as a spa would elevate this hotels facilities. Gym is spacious and wide range of equipment. Curious has gone down hill. Terrible “stunt” cocktails that taste awful. Rice paper branded stickers is tacky and taste horrible! The Chardonnay here is far too sour. You need to consult a sommelier and expert barman asap to fix that mess!

We stay in Fantastic suite, city view this time. Room is impeccable, has a nice living area once you got in. A cute bar nook to enjoy your night. Then a decent size of separate to the bedroom, then you got your own little walk in wardrobe. And the amazed you a huge bathroom hidden beside the wardrobe. Definitely a unique design of the room and the architecture element there in the room was pretty cool. Just stay a night, didn’t experience much of the equipment there like swimming pool and gym. But the service of breakfast was wonderful and enjoyable.
