Hotel Amenities


Room classification is straightforward with Lagoon View Rooms located around the pool and overwater bungalows set out over the lagoon. All rooms are air-conditioned and feature bright South Pacific colours with large bathroom featuring bath tub.

Overwater bungalows offer stunning views across to Moorea but no direct access into the Lagoon as currents here are dangerous for swimming.
