The property features 152 bedrooms and suites spread across the Cardinal Building and the Queen's Pavilion, as well as four private villas located within the estate's gardens. Guests can enjoy a range of amenities including a swimming pool, a mosaic, a fitness center, a sauna, steam room, and eight clay tennis courts.
