Beach Fales sit right on the beach with beautiful ocean views from private wooden verandas, with three fales set slightly back from the beach in light vegetation but with greater privacy and more spacious interiors. Fales are hand crafted bungalows with open timber frames, thatch roofs and woven coconut leaf walls. With high ceilings giving the open plan room plenty of air and Louvre windows maximising the sea breezes, each fale has a Queen size bed with mosquito net, a stand fan, a small en-suite bathroom with hot water shower and flush toilet. Some fales have tiled floors, whilst others have a natural stone finish.
Eueiki Island is a small coral island taking just ten minutes to walk around, surrounded in sand and backed by coconut trees. This is the archetypal South Seas island escape. The island is surrounded by coral reefs which are good for snorkelling and forms a deep water passage for visiting humpback whales which can often be seen just 100 metres off the beach from July to October.
Accommodation is in rustic hand crafted bungalows (fales) with open timber frames, thatch roofs and woven coconut leaf walls. With high ceilings giving the open plan room plenty of air and Louvre windows maximising the sea breezes, each fale has a Queen size bed with mosquito net, a stand fan, a small en-suite bathroom with hot water shower and flush toilet. Some fales have tiled floors, whilst others have a natural stone finish. Garden Fales are set back in light vegetation slightly larger in size and have a day bed which can sleep an extra guest; Beach Fales sit right on the beach with beautiful ocean views from private wooden verandas. Guests should be aware that this is a small outer island eco resort and you will probably share your fale accommodation with local insects including harmless house spiders and geckos which thrive amongst natural thatch building materials. All fales have 24-hr lights but no power sockets - these are available for guest use from the communal lounge.
Meals, with an emphasis on fresh fish and local fruit and vegetables, are cooked by the husband and wife couple (Mark & Veronica) from North America who ensure the resort runs smoothly and guests are well attended to including the serving of fresh coffee to each fale before breakfast. Snorkelling gear, kayaks and paddle boards are complimentary, whilst Mark, master boat builder, conducts island cruises in his hand built sea-faring outrigger canoe.
