SWIMMING POOL – FROM OCEAN TO INFINITY
Between the outer decks of the Malamathi Restaurant, completing the circle of Water Bungalows, sits our infinity pool overlooking the turquoise waters of the reef below. Jump in and stay there until the sun begins to set. Then move over to the edge of the pool and gaze on the sun’s orange-gold journey home. Maybe you’re on the island with the whole family – why not bring them all by for a day by the poolside? Eat, drink and let the kids make merry in the shallow waters of the children’s pool by your side.
