What should you expect from a stay at the brand-new Island Tower, which is projected to open in December 2024? Well, I’m sure we’ll get more details and concept art as time progresses, but right now all we know about the rooms is that they are “a variety of room types that will sleep from two to nine guests, such as duo studios, spacious one- and two-bedroom villas and brand-new two-bedroom penthouse villas.” The tower is 10 stories, so many of the rooms will feature “spectacular views”.

Inside the tower, guests will be immersed in a storytelling journey, with unique artworks and decor that reflect the spirit of Polynesia and focus on the natural world. Unlike the dark woods of the main resort, the concept art shows the use of earth tones and lighter woods. A prominent art panel installation on the ceiling showcases wildlife native to several different Polynesian islands. Each of the depicted animals is important to both the islands and to the Islanders.

Elsewhere throughout the resort, artworks and decor include preserved moss walls, sculptures made from recycled fishing nets, and other features that highlight the spirit of conservation and speak to the culture of Polynesia.
