It is encircled by the Great Astrolabe Reef, the fourth largest on the planet, and spread across 140 acres with two white-sand beaches. There are 21 beachfront villas, ranging from one to three bedrooms, and five “luxury residences”.

Built last year, the site is a PADI 5* dive resort. There are said to be more than 40 dive-sites within reach, ranging from 8-30m deep and between 15 and 60 minutes’ boat-ride away.

Best time for diving is between May and October, with cooler (24°) water and vis of up to 60m but diving is year-round, with mantas, sharks, turtles and dolphins all possible sightings.

The all-inclusive daily rate includes full board, seaplane transfers,10 dives per person and an array of activities, all for a slightly eye-watering US $24,600 per two sharing.
