Surrounded by leafy green foliage, the 20-meter, temperature-controlled outdoor pool is perfect for all-day lounging and sunbathing or a refreshing dip after a day’s shopping.


Arranged over two floors, this is the largest and most luxurious spa in the city. With six treatment rooms offering a huge range of therapies, as well as steam and sauna facilities, there is something for everyone.
