The venue is really stunning and spectacular as well. With the decoration is bringing all the Festive Vibes we need.

Unfortunately, the staff lack professionalism and rely on the venue's look. They were not helpful at all after the event to collect decoration which was left behind. Collection was not clear and there is a lot of confusion ad they cleared out decorationbut also asked us to next time take it down to reception. Not up to standards at all.
