This extends to touches which include model parrots nestling amongst the lampshades, an animal print carpet and woven rattan walls.

Food

The spa's health restaurant offers light but delicious lunches but unlike some more hardcore spas where detox is the order of the day, you are free to indulge in fine wines, cocktails and dessert if you choose to. There are two restaurants to dine in at night, Le Tse-Fung a restaurant offering traditional Chinese cuisine or Le Loti, which has a Mediterranean theme. The hotel also has its own vineyard, the Cos d'Estournel.
