Enjoy your meal at your leisure whether in your villa, in another island, by the pool, on the deck near the Treetop, at the Boat House, wherever accessible for you.
If you have enough salt water there's a freshwater pool next to Grouper Bar, you can chill there while sipping the cocktails, enjoy the tropical vibes at Boat House while waiting for a sunset and sometimes when the low tide there will a sandbank appears in the middle of Boat House beach and Muerba Island. Do some water activity such as stand up paddle board or kayak to explore the water of Bawah Reserve.
Do morning yoga or wellness treatment in their Spa & Wellness center, Aura or afternoon chilling at Jules Verne Bar. They also have boutique if you need something, called Terumbu Karang please shop because some of the profit will go to Bawah Foundation. They're also still developing a tennis court.
