The interior and overall architecture and design is a sophisticated approach to a traditional Middle Eastern palace in the bygone era.

They also have a bar that serves excellent tipples for anyone looking to enjoy the sun with a cold drink in hand. There is also a magnificent fountain in the middle of the pool that makes lounging there feel just a little more extravagant.
