For this trip I was staying in a Studio Room about 42 sqm big….. The room came with a generous king-sized bed and since I was tagging my younger “brother” along as well as my daughter, we had an extra spare bed thrown in and it did not even cramp the room..

Our room has a minimalist but contemporary interior, dressed in a combination of neutral warm colors as well as wooden furnishing, which definitely gave us a tranquil feel…
