The Resort is home to the Ruahatu Lagoon Sanctuary,[3] a research facility and home to over 100 species of marine life. Marine biologist Oliver Martin conducts ongoing research, teaches the principles of conservation to guests on daily tours and grafts coral in effort to further the development of the lagoon. Marine life within the lagoon include such species as octopus, eagle ray, lizard fish, Picasso trumpet fish, soldier fish, fire fish, unicorn fish, spotted puffer fish, parrot fish, peacock damsel fish, clown fish, butterfly fish, sea urchin, anemone and shrimp.
