The room I stayed in was elegant and very plush… It was warm and relaxing.. The beds came with a huge throw cushion, 2 down pillows and a smaller cushion which made it so so comfortable…  I felt oh so cocooned…

The room comes with separated shower and bath area… Ok.. The bath was a bit too sexy with a wooden window just separating the bathroom and the bedroom…

So yes, as mentioned, the Magellan Sutera Resort is now available for stays while the Al Fresco restaurant and Ferdinand’s are open for dining…
