We stayed at the Istana to break the jetlag from a holiday in Turkey (returning to Australia)- we booked into the 'club' which was excellent value with breakfast and a cocktail hour, staff were friendly, great pool and a well appointed gym. The Istana was well priced and in a good location would recommend to anybody.
