The hotel’s 21 Finch Bay Rooms are arrayed in a ring around the property, connected by an attractive wooden walkway through the hotel’s landscaped gardens. All of the rooms have balconies with hammocks, perfect for a read or a snooze after a day discovering the islands. Measuring a comfortable 20 m2 (217 ft2), rooms are available as single or double options.

The hotel’s Finch Bay Suites are the newest additions to its architecture, split into two sets: four to the west of the property and two to the east. All of them are slightly elevated giving them unparalleled views across the bay and the ocean. Artfully mimetic, with their walls lined with dark volcanic stones and discreet wooden handrails, the suites blend in subtly with the environment. Their balconies are the ideal place to relax after a day of exploring, while the bedrooms and bathrooms are ample, at 32 m2 (344 ft2). Four of the suites are interconnected, making them great choices for families or friends travelling together.
