The 146-room hotel is undergoing a refurbishment project to include serviced apartments, holiday homes and residential units in a choice of one-, two- or three-bedroom configurations.
The upgraded property will also comprise meeting facilities, a fully equipped gym, a spa, a wellness-focused restaurant serving healthy and organic foods, and a bakery.
