In case you were worried the American Love Island (Monday to Friday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) villa wouldn’t give you the same FOMO as the British one, the pics of the all-new locale are here and they’re just as glorious as you might expect. In this extra special sneak peek of the Fijian villa the islanders (and we) will be calling home for the next five weeks, there are all the classic features of a Love Island paradise—shared bedroom, outdoor shower, string lights—with a distinctly different style.
When Love Island premieres in a special 90-minute episode Tuesday, July 9th, host Arielle Vandenberg will welcome 11 islanders (who we met last week) to this very villa where they’ll hopefully find everlasting love and one lucky couple will win a sweet cash prize. We’ll be able to check in every weeknight and then cap off the week with the special gossip-filled Love Island Aftersun (premiering July 13 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) hosted by etalk‘s Danielle Graham, Lainey Lui and featuring special correspondent Jess Allen from The Social.
As we count down the house to the premiere, have a look at the villa and just let the FOMO and anticipation take you away.

The LoungeWhat’s a tropical resort without outdoor seating that’s nicer than your interior seating? COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The BedroomThere’s no expectation of privacy when you’re on Love Island. All the islanders will share one bedroom and sleep in a bed with the person they’re coupled up with. Oh, did we mention there are also night vision cameras? Nowhere is safe! COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The HideawayThe infamous Love Island Hideaway will be open periodically during the season for one lucky couple to have a night alone. Looks like they’re totally ignoring the “hide” in hideaway and opting to advertise its location with a neon sign. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
Inside the HideawayThe Hideaway bedroom was specially designed by Jonathan Adler. Is he available to do ours next? COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The Outdoor GymHmm, maybe we would be more inclined to workout if our gym looked like this one. The islanders keep fit right here on the patio and have a convenient outdoor shower right next to the equipment. We foresee some Bachelor-worthy slow-mo shower shots in our future.

Outdoor LoungingThere are sooo many places to sit and “have a chat” around the villa (because that’s 90 per cent of the show) and the décor tends to lean toward the comfy side—there are even some actual outdoor beds around. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The Patio BarThe islanders will spend many a night mixing cocktails here and many a morning hydrating after all those cocktails. There are eight Betty Larkin murals around the villa and that’s one of them on the back wall. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The Fire PitThe fire pit may seem innocent enough but it’s set to be the location of much heartbreak and drama: it's where the islanders will meet for eliminations and re-couplings. We’ll get to a point where being told to go to the fire pit will fill every islander with dread. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The PoolOh look an outdoor bed overlooking an infinity pool! The villa gardens are home to more than 3,000 local Fijian plants and all those decks were built using 20,000 feet of timber. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
The Villa at NightThis will be the setting for all the fun cocktail parties and devastating eliminations we’ll see this season. And it will definitely be bright enough to see all the drama with more than one mile of neon lighting around the patio. COLIN YOUNG-WOLFF/CBS ENTERTAINMENT
