    1. I need a spacious quiet room with a view for a couple. What room kind should I choose? In the booking panel all rooms are on display and still available. 2. What should I take with me; insect repellent, insecticides, anti malarial, anti diarrhoea? 3. Do they have grocery or minimarket selling water, juice biscuits fruits etc? 4. Wi Fi Internet in the room and Lobby? Is Vodafone 3 or 4 G internet signal perceived in that area? 5. TV channels? 6. Does the Buffet breakfast, lunch or dinner cater for vegetarians, Halal food, or contains seafood items? 7. Do they provide water kettle, coffee and water in the rooms? Is water safe for drinking?
