The hotel site enjoys the benefits of an intimate landscape, views, and southern exposure to the sun.
The hotel features a gross square footage of 41,350 square meters and includes a mix of 275 hotel rooms and 25 suites. The guest rooms are complimented by 1,800 square meters of conference space, three restaurants, two bars, a full service spa, and swimming pool.
