The 69-acre Iririki Island Resort is surrounded by the glassy-blue waters of the Pacific and boasts of incredible swimming and snorkelling. The gear is complimentary and guests can spend many a happy hour swimming with shoals of tropical fishes at Snorkeler’s Cove off the island. Inside, the resort features over 8 different room categories from Island Farés to the Tri-level Penthouse Suites to comfortably accommodate couples to large groups. Each room category has stunning views to match. Those wishing to marvel at the island’s tropical greenery can choose those set amidst the landscaped flower gardens, while visitors looking for a seascape can choose from the many beachfront options.

The bathrooms are modern yet spacious, featuring glassed shower stalls and premium toiletries.
Dining at the Iririki Island Resort is special every time. The main restaurant Azure impresses one and all with its waterfront location, the menu features fusion cuisine with world-famous Santo beef and locally-grown organic produce.
