Our favourite rooms
We love Villa 15, which has a games room on the ground floor that’s just as sleek and stylish as the rest of the house. Kids will thrill over the ping-pong table, cinematic TV and super-size sofa, as well as the ocean-view garden and easy access to the lagoon pool. Villa 19, which sleeps up to six, has a large outdoor entertaining area that’s perfect for family barbecues. Beach bunnies should opt for Villa 22, where guests have access to their own private beach; there’s also enough space to sleep eight guests and the fourth bedroom’s king-size bed splits into twin beds.
The unheated 25m lagoon pool is a crescent-moon-shaped sliver of turquoise, that’s petite but perfect for play; swimming aids are on hand for less-confident swimmers. If this pool is packed, hop in the golf buggy and trundle along to the shallow Bougainvillea Pool or the heated Pool Terrace pool (at the Reef View Hotel), which has a sloped entrance.
Bedecked with dragonfly motifs and blessed with tranquil tropical views, Spa Wurmurdaylin’s treatments are inspired by the natural surrounds. Indulge in heavenly-scented body scrubs, facials, a range of massages, body wraps, couple’s treatments and alternative therapies such as naturopathy and reiki. The spa has six treatment rooms and is open from 9am to 7pm. Children are welcome and some tot-tailored treatments – mini manicures and gentle massages – are offered on request. Island Hair and Beauty salon offers facials, body polishes, manicures and pedicures (including the ‘Little Princess Polish’ for under-10s), waxing, tinting and spray tanning, alongside lotions and potions to keep your locks beachy and beautiful.
A mid-stay clean is offered for bookings of five nights or longer, or make an advance request for more regular cleaning for AU$636 a day.
A month before arrival, your personal concierge will email to arrange VIP airport transfers, restaurant bookings, excursions, spa treatments and babysitting; it’s recommended to book in advance.
