A porter helps you with your bags, escorting you from the private dock to the lobby. You enter into the comforts of your gorgeous suite to find a private plunge pool, which serves as a connection to the greater lagoon. A large deck provides a sensational view of the dramatic peak of Mount Otemanu.
Natural light pours into the bungalow through the glass panels. The sunlight bounces off the radiant hues of the indigo water and through the panel on the floor, offering a unique perspective of the schools of fish swimming below. You easily settle into the charms of your accommodation, accentuated by the view of the landscape, the sounds of water lapping against the wooden posts, and the aroma of fresh coconut.
