We had the privilege of staying in this new boutique hotel for 3 nights. After hot days of sightseeing, it was always nice to return to the chic rooms and welcoming staff. We were able to view the various room types and to stay in two different ones. The Clarke suites seem ideal for families that need multiple rooms and a kitchen. We especially liked the dual rain-style shower heads in the master bath.
When we had some issues with a sputtering air conditioning system, the staff was more than happy to move us into a beautifully appointed room with a balcony that was wonderful. While putting a jacuzzi tub into the bath seemed to have led to a slightly awkward floor plan (tight squeeze through the door), all of the provided amenities and lovely details (unique stained glass and handpicked furniture and original artwork) more than made up for such minor things. I think it's because we were so spoiled during our stay here that I even noticed.
Don't miss the gift shop, where once again the care put into the design of this hotel is evident. While we didn't have a chance to eat at the restaurant (great mamak stalls nearby) or make use of the spa, both seem luxurious and of the highest quality.
