Abundant amenities

The hotel will offer a range of amenities including a spa and a modern fitness centre, as well as a convertible indoor swimming pool with a terrace and sunbeds.

The infrastructure will feature two restaurants, a Swiss café, a rooftop cocktail bar and a lounge with a cigar club on the top floor. Several spacious conference rooms and a ballroom will be provided for corporate and social events. Guests can also access two-storey underground parking.
