The pool is a bit small and shallow for a proper swim but v.nice anyway. Very good spa pool outside which the staff turn on for you once you are inside it.
I asked many of the staff at BK but no one really knows about the Cigar Club. Anyone know where it is?
The rents above are a bit low and good view units are getting much better rent especially if furnished. Lots of activity for people who want to rent here.

Hi all.

Hi Jonny.

Some info I have states the cigar club is on level 1. That's all I have unfortunately. If you find it let us know where it is.

Do you know if 'The Club' (pool/health annex) is open ?

Thanks.


Ray.

Some times back the frequency of the Fountain shows has been reduced to one every 30 minutes, from just 20 as it used to be.

Are you sure about that?

Hi all.

Many pics in my collection show the water level is indeed above the openings in the pools on both level 43 and 76.

Hmm. My apologies then peeps. Was going from memory from a visit. Certainly looks from those pics that the water is indeed above the level of the gap

Sorry to ask all of you, this isnt really related, but, I was wanting to build the Burj in Minecraft and I needed to know the heights of each tier to make it as close to the original as possible. Do any of you have a diagram with heights on it? A top view one would be best but any help would be greatly appreciated!

The server has a height mod and i was originally going to do a 1/3rd scale, but i may go even bigger

Everything you need to know can almost certainly be found in Fury's amazing thread here
