Bathe under blue skies or bright stars in the open roof bath area with standalone bathtub, rainforest shower and Bliss® Spa bath amenities.

  • Ocean Oasis -

    Spy on the island’s marine life in this over-water one-bedroom retreat perched above a transparent lagoon – do it all from the privacy of your plunge pool, your sundeck, or through the glass bottom floor.

    Outside, dip into the private plunge pool or hang out on the deck, where guests can soak up the sun on the circular daybed or draw the curtains for a nap in the shade. Fire up the grill for barbecue bites or cool down with a fine vintage from the wine fridge.

    Get in and stay connected with the 42” plasma TV, BOSE® sound system and complimentary High Speed Internet Access, even though you’re miles from everywhere. A glass floor in the air-conditioned bathroom creates the effect of being part of the ocean when you shower – Bliss® Spa bath amenities sweeten the fun.

Another great after-dark scene: the king-sized signature W bed, where sweet dreams happen.

  • Ocean Oasis Lagoon View -

    Lounge, gaze, and sigh in contentment – do this all day in this over-water one-bedroom retreat overlooking the breathtaking turquoise lagoon, where guests can also take the plunge with direct access from the deck. Swim, snorkel or drift along.

    On the privacy of the sundeck, kick back in the plunge pool or recline on the circular daybed – bask in sunshine or draw the curtains to snooze in the shade. Live the island life with snacks on the barbecue and delight in a favorite vintage perfectly chilled in the wine fridge.

    Stay close to the marine life when glass panels in the floor indoors reveal beautiful ever-changing aqua scenes. A whole new world reveals itself after dark when guests flip a switch to illuminate the underwater nightlife. Mix it up with the 42” plasma TV, BOSE® sound system and complimentary High Speed Internet Access. A glass floor in the air-conditioned bathroom makes showering a surreal experience as Bliss® Spa bath amenities complete the fun. Re-energize in the king-sized signature W bed and do it all again the next day.

  • Seascape Escape -

    Unwind to the ultimate degree in this two-bedroom junior suite that stretches over water, a private playground of serenity and never-ending ocean views.

    Spend all day swimming or snorkeling in the gorgeous lagoon with direct access just down the steps from the deck. Relax with a siesta on the daybed, also a perfect spot for stargazing all night long. Grill up a feast on the barbecue, and indulge on the freshest catch of the day with a fine vintage from the wine fridge while kicking back at the indoor/outdoor living space with comfy couches and a dining area. A refreshment center, powder room and glass floor complete the vibrant setting.

    Drift away to dreamland in the master suite’s king-sized signature W bed with spectacular views of the horizon and a 50” plasma TV in the sitting area. In the junior suite with its own bathroom and entertainment area with 43” LCD TV, snuggle up in twin signature W beds.

  • Ocean Heaven -

    Live the tropical dream in this two bedroom villa extending over the beautiful lagoon, where the gently lapping Indian Ocean sets a relaxing rhythm for lounging and hanging out.

    Kick back under the cool collection of vibrant, innovative and eclectic custom furnishing and amenities under the rustic thatched roof, amplified by original and bright design elements. In the sprawling master suite, panoramic views of the ocean create a breathtaking backdrop for chilling out in the sitting area or slumber in the king-sized signature W bed under the cathedral ceiling. An oversized circular bathtub means unlimited fun with Bliss® Spa bath amenities. The seascape setting continues to unfurl in the junior suite with twin signature W beds and a private bathroom. Each suite has a 42” plasma TV.

    Cozy up in the lounging couch and enjoy the 50” plasma TV and BOSE® Hi-Fi set, as a kitchenette has your favorite snacks and drinks within reach and a powder room makes freshening up convenient. The glass floor keeps stunning underwater views just a peek away.

    Step out through sliding floor-to-ceiling window for golden sunshine and soothing sea breezes – the indoor/outdoor lounge turns entertaining up a notch with lounging chairs and a bar. Slip into the oversized infinity edge plunge pool with bubbling Jacuzzi seats, or find a spot for basking on the wraparound sundeck – the daybed is perfect for stealing forty winks.
