It offers an incredible sense of freedom with spectacular indoor-outdoor flow through four wide openings onto the verandah. The Honeymoon Pool Bungalow features a unique design with a broad wrap-around verandah and a high, thatched roof providing a fabulous sense of space and island romance, and the broad encircling deck means that sun-lovers can follow the sun all day in complete privacy. This wonderfully secluded, one-of-a-kind bungalow provides easy access to the lagoon via a private gateway tracing a sandy path to Aroa Beach and the blue lagoon.
