Finished to a high standard with tasteful furnishings and a modern feel, the resort has been designed to blend in with the local environment and minimize the impact on this little-known pearl of the Pacific. The crystal clear waters provide brilliant snorkelling spots in Vava'u. The Japanese Gardens are just off the beach.
Kayaks and snorkelling gear are available for guests' use. The famous Swallows Cave can be accessed from the resort by kayak, whereas Port Maurelle, a tranquil bay and safe anchorage is only a short walk away. In addition, each fale has a music system for connection to an iPod or MP3 player and has Wi-Fi Internet access.
Whales may be seen from the resort in season. Scuba diving, sport fishing, whale watching (July-October) surfing, sailing, and even ‘Kart Safaris' can be arranged with reputable local operators.
The restaurant is right on the beach and has panoramic views of the turquoise sea and neighbouring forested islands. The menu changes daily and offers the best in local and international cuisine. The bar stocks a range of imported beers and spirits while the wine list boasts fine wines from around the world.
The desirable island location is far enough away from Neiafu, Vava'u's main town, to feel like an island hideaway, yet is conveniently close to town and the airport for shopping and transfers. The nearest airport is, Vava'u (VAV), which is about 10 miles away and the transfer time is 30-40 minutes by car and boat.
