My specific questions are as under:

2 year limited is normal, what is the job?

The job is for a business development director for a hotel company

It's an acceptable offer. Everything mentioned in your quote is as per norms of the labor law of this country. About your perks like school fee and all, it depends on the policies of the company. I suggest you to accept this offer.
