The spot we loved most at the hotel was the large swimming pool which looks out onto the city. A well-equipped fitness centre offers state-of-the-art equipment, including stair climbing machines and the usual elliptical, cardio and free-weights. The space for the centre is very big, with some small rooms at the back for yoga and stretching.
