Spacious bures leading out to a fantastic beach, three restaurants, and friendly staff make this among the Mamanucas' best. With 45 bures fanned out across a path from the beach (Ocean Views are studios; Deluxes have separate bedrooms), you can have your own space along the sand or stroll to the central beach bar or the two pretty pools for people-watching. Activities such as crab races, village trips, and dolphin safaris are announced daily on a newsletter delivered to
the rooms. Keep active with banana boat rides, waterskiing, knee-boarding, and island-hopping, or unwind in the small, serene spa in the rain forest. One restaurant combines à la carte nights with theme buffets, including a made-to-order pasta bar, while the fancier Tree Tops features Mediterranean-influenced cuisine on a rotating seven-day menu. Dietary needs are especially well-catered.
