  • Crazy Rich Asian film place
  • What a seemless check-in experience. Staff was friendly and efficient. Right from the entrance, the staff came to get the bags. Check in staff was all smiles and made the process quick and easy. Next day's breakfast was also made to make it convenient. Rooms are spacious, clean and our room had access to the pool too from the room. Family friendly. Shower room was clean and well equipped with all your needs.
