But if you stay at the Ramee Rose you can afford lashing more bullfrogs! The blue tongue is soooo sexy!

I live very close to there and would say Fairmont (as MataHari suggested) or Marina Residences as I can see Tiara in the view.

If its the fairmont, the pool and beach is superb, if its one of the Marina Residences, the pools are pretty nice but no beach access. About 10-15 mins to your dinner in a cab.

Yes, seems a good option for the price :-)

You snooze you lose.

I'd offer to put you up in my spare room but I'm camping in Oman this weekend and I don't know if I'd trust you alone with my sacred booze collection.
