Oriana – What to do
Before you can relax, you will of course want to be sure that your children are well looked after. You need not worry, as Oriana has this well covered; there are special areas available for three age groups. Peter Pan’s is designed for younger children, with soft play areas and a well run activity programme ensuring they are kept occupied. Decibels is an entertainment area for children in the 9-12 age bracket, laying on music, video games and computers for them to use during the day. Teenagers can make new friends in the Outer Space nightclub.
For the grown-ups, relax in the Oasis Spa, improve your fitness in the gymnasium or relax with Oriana’s golf driving nets. Alternatively, join a card school at Crichton’s or treat yourself to something nice from Knightsbridge shopping centre.
Oriana boasts many enjoyable settings for a relaxing drink, with Tiffany’s Bar a favourite with its speciality coffees, liqueurs and hand-made chocolates. The best view can be found from the spectacular Crow’s Nest, live sport is always on at Lord’s Tavern, while Anderson’s is modelled on the old style London gentlemen’s clubs. For those who like some live entertainment to go with their beverage, the Pacific Lounge puts on a wide variety of shows from comedy to cabaret, while Harlequins is Oriana’s lively nightclub.
