Photo report from the Presidential Suite
The Presidential Suite is the same size as the hotel’s Club Lounge.
The lounge is vast, sober and chic at the same time. The purple hues awaken the decor. We can easily have people over, up to 6. A bar is even available if you want to call on a bartender for a more lively evening.
The bay windows offer a beautiful view of the sea and the facilities.
As we had said we were there to celebrate an event – 11 years of marriage (the symbolic milestone of 10 years couldn’t really be celebrated abroad) – the hotel surprised us with a beautiful decoration on the bed and in the bathroom. The room is spacious and chic, just like the lounge with wood-coloured walls and light furniture.
There is a desk with a large mirror above and a small lounge area.
The bathroom is classic, large and in shades of beige. There is a corner bathtub as well as a shower and toilet. A water closet is also available for guests, accessible through the lounge.
Finally the big advantage of this suite, is its large private terrace, allowing us to enjoy the view and relax. The water games in the water park can spoil the atmosphere a bit, but it is still a very nice terrace.
