The Alcatraz Lobby building was named as such since this is where most administrative offices and indoor function areas are located. We joke the we pity those who have to stay indoors, like inmates of the infamous Alcatraz penitentiary, instead of enjoying the sunshine. Apart from offices and function rooms, the Alcatraz building features guest check-in and check-out, transportation desk, Lobby Bar, Tabaqueria tobacco shop, and a cage that is home to our resident cranky parrot. From the lobby area, guests can also see the Live Aquarium featuring the tropical fish that can be seen in the Plantation Bay house reef, as well as gazebos leading to our very own prawn farm.
