Hotel Amenities

The villas are located right on the beach edge tucked amongst coconut palms. The beach here is quite deep meaning even at high tide, there's plenty of beach to enjoy. Swimming is OK at high tide but at low tide the lagoon is very shallow - in fact, you can walk right out to the lagoon edge here in ankle deep water. There are deep spots for snorkelling at high tide. The villas are adjacent to the Manuia Beach Hotel.
