In the palace, you will find eight suites having royal architecture and elaborate features, right from wooden interiors, king-size beds, pleasant showers and vanities, and of course, perennially soothing day beds. What’s even more convenient, especially for people more accustomed to sophisticated lifestyles, is that the suites are heated during the winter season and has proper arrangements for air conditioning in summers.
