Excellent facilities, exceptional hospitality and truly amazing experience. The location is convenient as it is close to happening places Westgate, Sarit Centre, Diamond Plaza. Unfortunately, I couldn't use Spa facility as it was fully booked in advance.

I had drinks at Sarabi last Friday with my friends and the bar attendants were efficient, responsive and they seem to know my favorite coketails. I highly recommend Sarabi Bar where they also have heated pool.

Highs The staff are amazing. House keeping staff really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Rooms are large and comfortable - bathrooms are heavenly. Breakfast is the best!! Variety and selection is awesome. The pool /bar on the top floor is a great area to relax. Lows Really expensive to do laundry :)
