The smallest of all bungalows. A kind of fairy house built out of river stones, with a Polynesian green roof. Ideal for a couple.
Wide open onto the surrounding nature, this ?fare? overlooks the whole site with views of both the ocean and the park. Besides the main room, its three levels offer two bedrooms, one of which forms an alcove. The curved walls, the river stone façades, and the bathroom?s stunning coral ceiling create a mineral atmosphere, softened by the wooden doors and crowned by the turtle shell shaped roof. Ideal for a family.
This bungalow immediately carries you into a universe halfway between the tree house of our childhood dreams and the exoticism of a tropical house. The layout of its spacious interior is perfect for a family of 4 people as the mezzanine and the living area can each comfortably accommodate 2 adults.
Set right on the edge of the forest and resting on stilts, this ?fare? seems to have been built up in the trees. Inside, wood also prevails. The floor is made of Kohu wood, the sink is in the shape of an ?umete?, the doors and shelves are made of rough-hewn planks, and the furniture is made of branches that were simply barked and knotted, with a dash of color here and there provided by blue soji and bright ?tifaifai?.
A stunning view over the ocean. Single-storied and without a mezzanine, this bungalow is particularly attractive for families with young children and senior citizens. The touch of exoticism is provided by the ochre coating of the walls, obtained by mixing red soil and white sand, the rustic doors made of rough-hewn local wood, and the semi-external bathroom, built out of volcanic stones and integrated into the mountainside and the vegetation. Barbecue in the garden.
The former "Fare yoga" turns into a very spacious 80m² bungalow open on the guesthouse garden. This bungalow features a semi exterior bathroom built only with natural materials as in other units. Enjoy the comfort of this loft located only a few steps from the swimming pool.
Ideal for honeymooners. So cozy that you will only want to leave the Jacuzzi for the hammock or, at a pinch, for the coolness of the air-conditioned bedroom.
Ideal for honeymooners, this unit features the same comfort as fare Vai Ora. Ideal for 2 people, this bungalow includes a private jacuzzi with view on the lagoon and a small private garden. Only the bedroom is air-conditioned.
Deliberately original, this ?fare? is accessible via a footbridge. The roof is green, with flowers growing on top of it! The bathroom is sheltered from view by a bamboo grove. This bungalow was built with great attention to detail: it has a mosaic of river stones, a laced-up guardrail, and an array of soji partitions. Its private garden, with barbecue, overlooks the ocean. With its 3 beds upstairs, it is ideal for families or friends.
Fare Vaihere is a a subtle blend. A Polynesian roof, a deck made of Kohu wood, and tropical-style furniture for a touch of exoticism. The bungalow includes a Jacuzzi for that special feeling of luxury. Not to mention a wide-ranging view over the lagoon and the mountain in order to feel so close to nature.
Only the bedrooms are air-conditioned.
