The 19 Villas or bures (pronounced boo-rays) are carefully and thoughtfully placed along the South coast of the island and are encapsulated by our 2 top premium villas; The Point and Vale Viqi.The major influence in the design of the Bures is Santa Fe meets South Pacific. The idea was to ensure that each Bure embodied a barefoot luxury essence, in a simple space in which to free the mind and refresh the soul. Enjoy easy access to the water, each Bure with its own stretch of white sand.
