For convenient access, Crystal Mahler’s public spaces and dining venues are housed on one single level. The glass-domed Palm Court and dance floor takes pride of place, whilst other features include a luxurious spa area, complimentary sporting equipment including electric bicycles, kayaks and jet skis, plus access to a sleek fitness centre.
