Sixty-four new junior suite and presidential suite rooms will be equipped with the latest technology and luxurious amenities.
The new rooms will be located in four two storey buildings and offer breath-taking views overlooking the golf course.
Meanwhile, a new state of the art destination spa and wellness centre will enjoy tranquil views over the central lake.
Covering 18,300 square feet the new building will include world-class facilities such as a hydrotherapy area, cabins for specialised treatments, relaxation areas, café and bridal suite.
The new facilities will be open in time for the start of the winter 2022 season.

A new conference centre opened in 2019, while a new family pool area, beach club, restaurants and golf learning centre were opened in 2018.
Some of the existing hotel rooms were also upgraded at that time.
