Interiors are no less impressive, with the largest Lobby Lounge in the city, packed with dazzling décor. The superlatives continue apace outside, with an Olympic-size swimming pool, outdoor Jacuzzi and a clean sweep of private sandy beaches offering plenty of options for some serious rest and relaxation.

Adding to the luxe offering are a nine first-class eateries that tempt with an array of global flavours, the flagship being the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill – his first foray into this part of the world.
