1 of 24Breathtaking view over Erakor Island and the ocean
5 nights minimum
Great Location: Pool & View: The best thing is the location on top of the hill overlooking the beautiful aqua waters of Erakor Lagoon and Island. It always has nice breezes and is 2-3 degrees cooler than the centre of town. (though we are only 7 mins to town) The pool also overlooks le lagon resort which is an easy walk with its day spa, golf course, tennis, restaurants and their magnificent pool with swim up bar and water sports and kids activities you can use. You can walk to the boat that takes you across to Erakor Island with its nice day spa and restaurant. Nice French restaurant at the bottom of the street.
Close to transport/town. No real need for a car except if you want to hire one for a day to do the round Island tour . Discounts on car hire available. Phone numbers provided f...Great Location: Pool & View: The best thing is the location on top of the hill overlooking the beautiful aqua waters of Erakor Lagoon and Island.
