Aside from Cafe Amarra, the resort's coffee shop, it also has a huge 460 sq. m. infinity swimming pool with deck, poolside bar, 7 floating huts (a good place to eat, relax and surf the internet not available in our rooms) on a koi-filled pond, 24-hr. game room, spa (Solana), function/meeting rooms, business center, children's playground, a gazebo, souvenir shop and convenience store.
