Would highly recommend staying here. The desk staff were great, very friendly and helpful. The Mantra Esplanade is close to the Marina for boat trips and tours and close to some great restaurants, shops and the lagoon.

Reception staff were faultless. Perfect location with Restaurants, Cafes, Night Markets, The Esplanade Lagoon and main Pier all within a stones through from the Hotel. The apartments are very well equipped and a great size.
