Please accept our sincerest apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience caused by our recent temporary closure. Being located 72km's from the mainland provides a stunning environment for our guests but can also provide operational challenges at times. Located in such a pristine, remote environment, our water is supplied by our onsite desalination. Unfortunately, we experienced a sudden unexpected problem, which meant we were unable to produce water. For the comfort and safety of our guests we had to temporarily suspend operations. Our team is committed to continuous improvement and we appreciate your feedback regarding how we can improve our communication.
