There is a shared toilet and shower facility located nearby for the glamper's convenience.

Outside, guests can find a large private porch to soak up the unique views that only a handful of visitors have seen from the island. Relax and enjoy the sounds of diverse bird species on one of the oldest nature reserves in the world—and it can all be experienced right outside your tent.

Guests can also take advantage of the divine dishes prepared at the island by the chef of the property.
