Villa M houses a range of businesses all specifically chosen along the theme of saving lives and improving health. Villa M also includes a hotel, restaurant, bar, conference area and many activity hubs such as a boxing and fitness club and yoga studio.
Villa M is made from durable materials with an organic colour palette. Mirrors and eco-friendly products have been installed to create a peaceful environment for business-goers and residents.
