Their Creole Buffet was bar far the best buffet I've ever encountered, with an incredible selection of appetizers, mains, sides, breads, desserts, everything you could think of!

Very good hotel but the food was overly pricy! amazing service and facilities. The staff are the highlight of the stay - and the infinity pool and the privacy also contributed for the good experience.

Be immersed in the relaxing therapies of the exclusive Raffles Spa, which coupled with the soothing embrace of unsullied nature, rejuvenate both body and spirit.
