This Swissotel Resort really does have a dining option to suit any appetite at any time of day.

Anyone wishing to explore the island is well taken care of by hotel staff who can recommend organised tours to suit every taste. Many guests have everything they need on the door step given the excellent proximity to Bangla Road.
