As a part of Marriott Hotel’s transformation, the brand’s signature Greatroom and the resorts River Bar are an open and flexible space with sofa chairs and tables of different sizes, height and design arranged imaginatively for guests to either revel, enjoying drinks and food surrounded by the refreshing green rainforest or simply for quick group discussion be it for business or personal.
