When you reach this remote part of the world, it's as if you've stepped into Paradise. The whole scene exudes peace and serenity. Some of the guest bungalows, which are all built in the typical Polynesian style, are set over the lagoon itself, others are located on the beach and others are near to the large freshwater pool. The bungalow roofs are thatched with pandanus leaf, the floors are of polished yucca wood, and other local woods are used for the natural furnishings.
It's an absolute delight to enjoy a romantic dinner under the stars, sampling some of the local specialities - with the focus on fish - while witnessing a display of exotic dance and music, including the traditional fast-paced tamure dance with its frenzied drumming accompaniment. Alternatively, guests can enjoy an intimate romantic dinner served in their bunglow. The Rotopa Bar, alongside the pool, is a perfect place to cool off and relax, and the Hiro Lounge offers awe-inspiring views of the lagoon and the exotic vegetation that surrounds it.
A variety of activities is available, from a cruise in a catamaran, to diving in the crystaline waters, but nothing can quite compare to the sensory adventure offered by the Maru Spa. Wood, bamboo and stone decorate the cabins of this treetop retreat where you can hear the gentle whisper of the breeze in the giant Banyan trees while you enjoy therapies based on Maohi traditions and cultures. Why not try a luxurious bath with coconut milk and local flowers? Or, if you're there with your partner, indulge yourselves with one of the special treatments for couples and experience a time of true romantic relaxation.
