          Hi, How far are the Tower rooms from the heritage rooms? I am asking this since we are a large group and some have booked in tower while others have booked rooms in heritage, If we need to be able to walk over to our rooms easily, is it a short distance or not? And how is the view different from either - tower or heritage?

          Hello, We are looking forward to our trip here the end of March/early April. My question is about the water---do you provide bottled water/is tap water safe to drink? We were advised by medical staff in GA, USA to only consume bottled water. Any clarification you can provide re: this matter would be greatly appreciated. Please advise at your earliest convenience.
