Lunch on the Breakaway as a result of an invitation to UK Gold and above Latitudes members. Had a chance to have a good look around and take a few photos which I am posting here as I thought they may be of interest!

This is the Carlos cake shop outlet - a great new addition.

Attachment 269775

Le Bistro outside seating area - very Parisienne!

Attachment 269776

Wine station vending wine by the glass in the Garden Cafe - swipe your room card to vend.

Hope these are of interest - more to follow.

Loads of seating and lighter/ brighter than the Epic. The free beverages are also a welcome initiative.

I'll have the UBP, I wonder if I can swipe my card if I wanted a glass of wine or if I need to get the drinks from actual bar tenders. I guess time will tell but that is a question I need to ask.
Thanks.

If I remember correctly the wine vending is priced for taste, half or full although not sure what this means in terms os quantity! If I remember correctly taste is $2.95, half is $4.95 and full is $7.95 (I might be wrong on these prices). You swipe your room card and it is self serve.
