Each room also comes with a pair of deep-cushioned armchairs, a 32-inch LCD television with satellite Freeview and Apple(R) TV, a writing desk with an ergonomic chair, and the most luxurious modern bathroom, with heated floor, warm towels, and a superb walk-in monsoon shower. Both Deluxe Rooms also have the added indulgence of a deep, free-standing bath.
