The harmonious blend of heritage and modern craftsmanship owns its glory to design firm URBNarc. Imparting a nostalgic vibe (solely unique to Naumi Liora), you may find the mini figurine sculptures by local artist/sculptor KY Huang sneaking around the corners of the hotel. We found some mini coolies in the stairs landings – obviously in their gymnastic state of work/play.
