The mantra esplanade is in a terrific location right on the esplanade and close to everything. The apartments are your typical one bedroom apartment style with a small kitchenette and laundry.
The front office service was inconsistent, some days we would have really helpful staff and the other days we had staff members That seemed rather disinterested and didn't dally want to be there answering my questions. I also felt the security was very relaxed as we were not checked for our name or photo any time we needed our card rewritten to get in the room.
The bed is very soft, which I found uncomfortable as I have a bad back, but I'm sure this would suit other people. All in all this was an okay stay, it just did not feel quite upto the regular mantra standard.

I shock myself at ...

We suited up in very fashionable dive suits. Got a briefing on what to do in the water and suited up with the air thanks on our backs and flippers kicking around on our feet. I never jumped out a plane but I image the experience might go something like this, you stand at back of the craft ...
... our way up the 200 odd stairs and stared down from the platform. I have to admit my legs were going to jelly a little at this point. The other 3 were before us. The first was stood on the edge for around 5minutes before being persuaded to jump. The other two just went for it. Then came my turn. I asked if they would lengthen the rope slightly so that I could get dunked in the pond beneath (just for added effect). I got to the ...
