Dining: The Thai Lao Yeh Restaurant features ever-popular Thai cuisine and the less well-known Chiang-mai, E-San, and Laotian fares. Original recipes combining the best of local cuisines are presented in gourmet style. To give patrons the atmosphere of ancient Siam and a touch of nostalgia and visual aesthetics, the wall panels of the Restaurant are crafted from 100-year old timber salvaged from a Thai village and painstakingly and expertly turned. The result is awe-inspiring and breathtaking.
The Joy Luck Club: The Club premises is well presented with two turn-of-the century Viennese or Parisian style salons, the main Lounge, 2 private Salons, Bar and the Library, and is located on the Ground Floor West-wing.
It is decorated with antique furniture, fixtures and fittings including French Museum cabinets and LV trunks. On its ceilings classic model airplanes playfully take flight over sailboat models displayed amidst antiques and other classic objects d art. There is a deliberate play of colours here as well: the multi-hued sofas, imported from Shanghai and equally colourful trunks have pride to place and, they contrast sharply with the quietly sober and rich palette of black and white themed walls and flooring, used throughout the Club. The Club offers a special cozy ambience, tasty aperitifs and canapés complemented by wines or even beer. And, when your appetite is sufficiently stirred, repair across the lobby to Thai Lao Yeh Restaurant.

Recreating the Shanghai chic of the 1920s, famous for its modernity and aesthetics after the Parisian and Viennese styles, the building is comprised of twin four-story art deco blocks of luxury apartments crowned by a swimming pool at the rooftop and connected by a central core structure. The wide marble staircase and its spacious landings or lobbies with their balustrade balconies are housed within the central core, which connects the twin blocks into one single large mansion. The central core balconies give the building that added dimension of symmetry and visual appeal. The marble staircase with its handcrafted teakwood railings leads all the way up to the Rooftop Swimming Pool, providing access and egress to the luxury Apartments-in the-Sky and also the Hotel, which occupies the Ground and Second Floors.
