The Nanuku Auberge Villas are one and two bedroom beachfront or garden facing villas as part of the Nanuku beachfront boutique property, which sits on a 550 hectare estate and a 2 acre private island located on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu. Staying in any of these villas means having a luxurious outer island experience on the mainland, with uninterrupted ocean views. There’s a 2 km sandy beach where you can swim, with gorgeous colorful reefs around you and the lush mountains and rainforests as the backdrop. With world class shark diving, food safaris, white water rafting, and eco parks, there’s something for everyone here!

Wellness: Nanuku has a fitness center, with wellness coaching and fitness instruction. You can even schedule private yoga classes for yourself. Two air-conditioned indoor treatment rooms and two outdoor spa treatment rooms, as well as a private hot tub, makes it the perfect island relaxation retreat.

Green Hotel facts: Along with the many exciting activities that Nanuku provides, they also have the ‘Planet Auberge’ participation program lead by an on-site marine scientist. This program involves guests participating in coral planting (which expands the reef, making it a good snorkelling spot, and also provides natural habitats for marine life), mangrove reforestation (helping sustain fish populations in the area, which in turn benefits the livelihood of the community) and turtle conservation efforts. This year, they also plan to start edible seaweed, giant clam and pearl oyster farming at the resort.

On a daily basis, they have implemented various methods to reduce their energy consumption and be sustainable. These include:

  • Installing LED energy saver bulbs throughout the resort.
  • Distributing solar lights around the beach villas and surrounding gardens.
  • Recycling of all plastic bottles in the resort nursery for mangrove seedlings.
  • Replacing styrofoam containers and plastic straws with eco-friendly, biodegradable paper straws and bamboo pulp containers.
  • Having Fijian-made refillable pump bottles to replace all single use bottles in the resort.
  • Conducting educational workshops for local communities and schools in order to make them aware of the negative effects of poaching, as well as the benefits of recycling etc.
  • Working in partnership with the University of the South Pacific to study turtle populations in the Beqa Lagoon Area for the Turtle Moratorium Research.
  • Pledging to not serve Kawakawa and Donu (groupers) during their spawning season.
  • Removing and composting of all green waste and paper waste.
