Within the hotel, a combination of Standard Doubles, Deluxe Family Rooms (two double beds), Club Double/Twin and Superior Suites are available. Guests staying in the Club rooms have access to the Crowne Plaza’s Club Lounge where a complimentary breakfast is served, along with unlimited beverages and evening canapés. In addition, Club Rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and chocolates. Some rooms have views of the hotel’s private garden and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers over bathtubs with complimentary toiletries.
Restaurants and Bars
Open to residents and non-residents alike, Umami is the Crowne’s South Asian themed restaurant serving up a fusion of dishes from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. With a Feng Shui design and jazz and swing music in the background, the restaurant is an informal and relaxing space where guests can enjoy either lunch or dinner.
Alternatively, bar food can be sought in the hotel’s Lounge Bar that also serves a range of drinks. Children accompanying a paying adult can eat for free within the Lounge Bar.
