This is the heart-stopping experience that awaits you in the underwater room. The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood, and each an experience in itself. The landing deck, at sea level, has a lounge area and bathroom facility. Sleep under the stars to the soft murmuring of the sea. Then downstairs - the magical feeling of lying on a soft double bed surrounded by panes of glass affording almost 360 degrees viewing - watching the shoals of reef fish and exquisite, often rarely seen individuals visiting your windows.
