History: The building was constructed for royal honeymooners in 1865. Later the house was turned into the Custom House in 1928 but due to poor maintenance, it deteriorated and finally had to be evacuated. The former Palace was restored to its former glory, opening its doors in September 2014, serving as a home away from home for many travelers.
