All rooms have direct access to outdoor courtyards and meandering pathways that have an abundance of sunlight with gardens, birdlife and places to relax and enjoy the fresh air. Floor to ceiling windows throughout provide an abundance of natural light and lounge areas have kitchenette facilities where you can attend activities or enjoy time relaxing with family and friends.
