Rooms with a view
With 24 luxury overwater bungalows available, you'll find that each offers a great view of the ocean and island.

You'll also find that there's an added, maybe unexpected view inside the room. This time, instead of looking out, you'll be looking down through a piece of glass flooring that allows you to view the underwater world below you without having to jump in the water.
Rooms also come with a kingsize bed and a sofabed, Wi-Fi, an entertainment system with a plasma TV, a separate bathtub and shower, a mini bar and the added bonus of an outdoor shower.
Great snorkeling and more
Every resort on Bora Bora offers great snorkeling as the waters around the island are positively amazing. Here you'll find healthy reefs teeming with fish and coral, clear water and gentle currents that make even the most novice snorkeler feel at ease. But here at this resort, you'll find some of the best snorkeling on the island, right under your water villa. Instead of having to venture out to a reef offshore, you'll be able to eat breakfast and then jump in the water straight from the beach.
But there are also other great activities to partake in during your stay. If you feel like diving a little deeper, you'll have the chance with the resorts dive center. You'll also be able to take part in a canoe tour, parasailing and an island tour. The most popular however, is the shark and manta ray feeding excursion where you'll be able to get up close and personal with them while in the water.
