I believe that both resorts have them in the common viewing area off the lobby, but don't know from experience.

....don't know where it's located at Kidani, but the night-vision googles viewing area is past the far side of the pool to the left, past the hot tub....

I'll have to answer you on the other thread, since we can only post AKL related stuff here.

Hi everyone! My wife and I are planning on staying at AKL May 22-27. Whee! We had an amazing dinner at Jiko during our honeymoon in 2010 and she loved the resort so much that I convinced her to stay there on this trip.

I apologize if this is in the thread somewhere and I haven't gotten to it yet...I'm trying to figure out how many King beds there are in the standard and pool view categories. Does anyone know? I'm really hoping to get a king bed and don't want to do a pool view if it'll decrease our chances. Also, I'm on the lookout for pictures of the view from standard and pool view rooms. Earlier in this thread (or #7, maybe?) someone mentioned looking at pictures of worst views. Is there a link somewhere?

Thanks!
