Now to the stories

.................................................

I was invited to tour the resort in 2013 when it opened newly. Then, I was a consultant and also part of the department's retreat planning committee. Indeed, the facility was a perfect place for a corporate retreat. At the time, the spa and swimming pool were under construction.

Fast forward to 2016, I was invited for a friend's wedding which happened to be taking place at the resort. Surely, it was an opportunity to visit again and find out what was new. It was a pleasant surprise to know that the resort can also be utilised for an intimate garden wedding.

My second visit in 2016
