The villas are decorated in a contemporary style and their sheer size (1,100 sq ft) and amenities are what make them so luxurious. There are 83 lodgings in all: 3 villas on Motu Tape and 80 villas on stilts spread around 4 wooden footbridges. The 'diamond' villas, at the end of the pontoons, look out to Bora Bora's main island, on the side of Mount Otemanu. They have an unrestricted view of the lagoon and a splendid view of Bora Bora and its crenellated verdant peaks. As for the 'emerald' villas, which are also on stilts, they are directed towards the Motu - the reef islet on which the hotel is located. The hotel itself is a low building, of traditional architecture, with gardens all around it and a very attractive panoramic view. The most accessible category of stilt villas is the 'sapphire': they do not have as much privacy, as neighbours on the other pontoons are visible (although not too close). The three villas on the Motu are the most exclusive category, and they can be reserved for special occasions. All of the villas, however, have similar lay-outs and equipment of the latest kind. A very spacious lounge, a bedroom with a bed in the centre of the room, facing the lagoon, a large bathroom equipped with a bathtub, a separate shower, a double washbasin, dressing-gowns, a hair-dryer and a host of hospitality products. A bay window runs from the floor to the ceiling in the bedroom and the lounge and there is also a window in the bathroom near to the bathtub. All rooms have a vast wooden terrace, with teak deckchairs and armchairs offering direct access to the lagoon via a ladder. The seabed essentially consists of sand, corals can be found further away, by the reef slope. As for equipment, these villas have everything and more: eco-friendly air-conditioning (the cooling water system does not stop at night time unfortunately, unless we couldn't find the switch), a ceiling fan, a flat screen television (one in the bedroom and one in the lounge), a minibar, an espresso machine and kettle (coffee pods and tea bags are offered by the hotel), a safe and a telephone.
