The whole area has been astroturfed, with rows of tents alongside walkways dotted with benches and potted plants. Each of the larger Luxe Plus tents has its own patio, set with chairs and a small table.
At the far end, next to a small art gallery is a row of mobile bathrooms, each containing a shower, sink, toilet, and stocked with Swisse body wash, hand cream, and Toni & Guy shampoo. In one corner of the property is the General Store, a hut-like structure which serves as a café-bar. The view is impressive, taking in the extravagant landscape as well as towering modern buildings all around.
Along with a Samsung tablet and free wifi, there are complimentary snacks, beer from the local Temple Brewing Company and boutique soft drinks.
