Through recent fundraising events, we've partnered with the Orangutan Foundation to adopt Mona & Okto, two orphaned orangutans in Indonesia. The money we've raised supports the care and rehabilitation of Mona & Okto for two years.
To celebrate this, our very important little guests receive cuddly orangutan toys on arrival as part of a Very Important Baby (VIB) program and in the restaurant, why not ask for the orangutan colouring books for the little ones!
Our living green wall in the lobby was awarded the Interior Landscaping of the Year. The long, vital green wall in the hotel lobby provides a pleasant, luxurious multifunctional space for hotel guests, conference participants and local residents. And is a favourite instagram hotspot for our visitors!
