Great if on own, business or group of friends. If you stay in this hotel, you literally are spoilt because expats and locals come to try all these restaurants and bars. Outstanding restaurant...

Well worth a visit, nice atmosphere, very chilled out, staff are nice and attentive. Food was tasty, would go again. Live music a good addition. Please though relocate the Koi carp, the pond is too small.
