Find peace and calm in their seafront villa, the garden-hug room, or their Underwater Room. The floating three-storey accommodation is an otherworldly beaut that offers guests a golden chance to actually dive deep into the ocean world throughout the stay without ever having to leave the room. If this is not unique, then we don’t know what is.
