Opening in June 2011, the hotel's speciality restaurant, Salt and Bread, will offer traditional Russian cuisine in a casual environment and will accommodate up to 258 diners. The restaurant will serve dishes such as Chicken Kiev, Beef Stroganoff and Shashlik. Performances by Russian musicians will be staged nightly.
The hotel houses the city's largest health club spreading across 1,286 square metres on the third floor, with a 25-metre indoor heated swimming pool with views of the lake and mountains through the windows. The health club includes steam bath, sauna, a hair salon and massage facilities, which are also open to the public at additional charges.
