Vunabaka, the first Fijian resort to provide a private residential or luxury boutique hotel experience within a single beachside development, has opened.
Located on Malolo Island, a 35-minute boat ride away from the international airport, the self-described “water-lover’s paradise” comprises two private marinas, 73 private luxury villa residences and the Island Grace boutique hotel.
Two types of bures (traditional Fijian seaside villas) are available for rental: studio bures, with their own private garden and access to the beach, or garden bures with their own private plunge pool.
The destination also specializes in water sports, offering ocean-based activities including surfing, fishing, boating, sailing, diving and swimming. A number of land-based activities, such as tennis, running trails and yoga, are also available.
In addition, the ecologically aware property runs on networked solar power, uses an organic wastewater system and even has a reforestation program to restore native rainforest and hardwood trees.
