The architectural design is simple but lovely. Interior space and ambience is lovely. Shops and restaurants are fantastic. Was not able to visit the gymnasium. Cinema is fantastic. Handii Indian restaurant is a nice place to have a meal especially on the terrace.

Strategically located, this mall offers a good variety of shops, restaurants. The cinema is also up to date with the new releases. Can get extremely busy during Sunday afternoons and sometimes parking can become an issue.

Not really worth going there, seems big but there's nothing inside, not any interesting shops, just overpriced crap from China...the café looks goods but I was not in. On contrary, there's a very nice souvenir shop next to the shopping mall - the Banana Boat.

One of the best places where you can go, take a place and taste some ici cream or cake or coffee is Acacia Mall. It’s clean and with air conditioning.

I am not sure but wheel chair access within the cinema is quite difficult because or the stairs. You would be limited to the front row.
