Along the whole length of the back wall of the lounge is a dramatic wall mural of local wildlife, while the front is floor-to-ceiling glass which acts as a high-definition screen onto reality. Every small detail in the design and layout is well thought-out, giving you the opportunity to relax in luxurious comfort. Creative use has been made of local fabrics and art, and the decor is both modern and warm, with a central indoor fireplace connecting the various seating areas and bar.
