One of the highlights of the Club Lounge is the panoramic view of the whole Nuvali complex. We spent most of our afternoon here, enjoying the free-flowing coffee, tea and non-alcoholic beverages.
We were able to write a couple of blog posts using the iMac station. The wide open spaces and the view really helped me a lot to be more creative with ideas just kept pouring in. I find the Club Lounge also ideal for small meetings, brainstorming and just an afternoon chitchat with friends.
Surrounding the hotel are wide open spaces that connects to the landscape of the gardens and the lake. There's a spot facing the lake where guests can lounge to enjoy the morning sun. The area is also ideal for morning yoga.
