Although it may seem intimidating from the outside due to its large structure, Papa Bolo has a welcoming ambiance as you go inside with its floor-to-ceiling glass windows and panels that give out natural lighting during the day. You can even see an amazing view of Sky Ranch’s ferris wheel, especially during the night when its lights are bright.

Also, previous guests noted that the staff is accommodating and friendly, so rest assured that you’re in good hands once you visit.
