These rooms have similar amenities to the bungalows including king size bed but have a smaller living area and bathroom. Rooms also have balconies overlooking the lagoon, but again smaller in size.

The Waterfront Bungalows have spacious interiors with king size beds and large en-suite bathrooms, some offering small kitchenettes with gas stoves and cooking utensils. The bungalow front sits almost directly over the lagoon and has large sliding doors offering full views from inside the bungalows

The farthest bungalow from reception is the Honeymoon Bungalow, and perched on a point, its veranda faces away from other bungalows ensuring absolute privacy as well as a large spa bath which opens up onto the deck making this a great option for romantic couples. Otherwise, interiors are the same as the Waterfront Bungalow
