The cliff swimming pool is located close to the central pavilion, whilst the beachfront pool overlooks the sandy bay. Dining at the central pavilion is superb, with the beachfront restaurant offering a more relaxed option.
Amano’i pavilions are located to take advantage of the spectacular views to the sea, and surrounding hillsides and central lake.
