These backdrops offer you a quieter and calmer hub while having a rural feel of the open sky and the lush of trees. Here at Aroma Bistro, you will be served with Italian cuisine of flavorful classics like Taggiasche olives with Provola and shaken Carbonara rigatoni. Dessert indulgencies include the Tiramisu Aroma that features Gumaja 70% chocolate.
The American-Style Lounge Bar
