Intact coral reefs span for miles. The prolific wildlife includes spinner dolphin, green turtles and humpback whales. On Fanjove, time seems to have no pull, and guests feel privileged to alight upon this pristine island. Only the 19th century lighthouse and some architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous occupation.
Six discreet private bandas nestle along the sandy shore. These are A-framed to reflect the local traditional sailing boats which may break the endless horizons as you gaze out to sea.
Each banda is open at its front to capitalise on the uninterrupted ocean views. The lodge has been designed with a small environmental footprint. Solar power is used for all the rooms and the buildings use traditional, natural materials. Simple, stylish and comfortable, and completely in keeping with the unpretentious Fanjove vibe, the accommodation provides the perfect base from which to explore the island, shores and seas.
An open-air restaurant and lounge area is the ideal place to gaze at the starlit skies and appreciate the undisturbed surroundings. Delicious food is served each night on the beach under the palm trees.
