I have been staying at this hotel since 2002 and i really enjoy the Hospitality and the personal service. i stay here bout 5to 10 times a year. It seems that many of the staff working at Amara you will find have been working there for many years- It is nice to arrive and be greeted personally by my name- i guess i am a regular. The staff seem to go out of there way to give you what you want. I like staying in the club lounge on the 17th floor. They have a great pool and Gym. Also handy that there is a supermarket next door and across the road- many eating places next door as well as the Amara Restaurants in the hotel. The MRT is just around the corner so handy to get to hotel. It is close to down town and does not have the overcrowded feel of Down Town. It is in the business district which i like and is convenient for me.
