    Tented Beach Suite
    A luxury tented beachfront suite set amongst lush foliage and a stone’s throw from pristine, white sand and glistening lagoons. Peaceful privacy, gentle breezes and sea views from your verandah.

    Dotted along the island’s white-sandy shoreline with the sound of the waves gently lapping, experience the romance of sleeping in one of our 19 beachfront luxury safari-style suites (70 sqm). Open the canopy to the elements or close the sides as you prefer. The suite’s tented ceiling stretches across the verandah for a shaded daytime reading spot or a fine dining lunch. Step down onto your own private beach area and enjoy a soothing massage experience or drift away on your sun lounger. End the day with a dip into sapphire waters that are so crystal clear it’s almost a cliché.

    Tented Garden Suite
    Set slightly back from the beach amidst sun-dappled jungle terrain, enjoy a luxury safari-style tented Garden suite (70 sq m). Wake up to the dawn chorus and the cheeky whistles and hoots of the black minah birds as they cavort in the Indian almond trees around you. Step out of your verandah onto the sandy forest floor and you’ll find that you’re only footsteps away from the beach. The suite’s tented ceiling canopy stretches across the veranda for a shaded daytime reading spot on the five-metre daybed. Open the canopy to the elements or close the sides as you prefer.

    Overwater Bungalow
    For a romantic getaway or dream honeymoon, upgrade to a beautiful Over-water Bungalow. Exclusively accessed by ironwood walkways, the 11 Over-water Bungalows (105 sqm) are blessed with splendid vistas over the lagoon and outer islands, with six suites catching the sunrise in the east, and five perfect for a sunset in the west.

    Sliding doors open into an air-conditioned interior adorned with aqua-hued seascapes and jungle murals. Steps lead from a private verandah and open-air sundeck straight into the tropical waters below. Perfect for enjoying your very own spectacular sunset with a cocktail from your own bar or a personalised gourmet dining experience.

    Treehouse Lodge
    The two-bedroom Treehouse Lodge is the newest addition to the Reserve and a good option for families. Peaceful and private, this treetop lodge offers gentle breezes and partial sea views – although the beach is just a few minutes walk down 50 hand-cut stone steps. There are two en-suite bedrooms, a large open plan living and dining area and a full-length front-facing outdoor balcony accessed from sliding doors in the living room. The lodge offers panoramic floor to ceiling windows that give a sense of being immersed in nature and a direct private pathway to Tree Tops Restaurant.
