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.
