The Iniala Beach House’s uniquely shaped rooms are capped with floor-to-ceiling glass walls that face the idyllic beach. The glass walls allow guests to sleep in the comfort of the indoors with the feeling of being outside. The two rooms flank either side of a semi-private pool that also overlooks the beach. Deep timber provide shade and privacy, and a rich wood sundeck outfitted with loungers is the perfect place to relax. Further down a timber staircase leads guests directly to the beach.

The rooms have contrasting lines – one focuses on vertical patterns with a headboard that stretches up to the ceiling to serve as a room divider. The other is focused on horizontal lines with walls that extend and wrap around the room like a shell. Both rooms feature bright white polycarbonate panels that were installed to enhance reflected natural light, and to emulate the ocean’s waves. A connecting enclosed courtyard features completely glassed in sides, creating a fishbowl effect.

The breathtaking resort celebrates the natural beauty of the beach while offering visitors a chance to immerse themselves in their surroundings with a world-class scuba school.
