Vatulele Island, off the South Coast of Viti Levu, Fiji

"Somewhere between 5 stars and heaven... Vatulele Island Resort is located on one of the most stunning island in the world. Once you arrive you know you have reached paradise, the sounds, smells and sites of Vatulele will remain with you forever.

The crystal clear waters of Vatulele invite every kind of water-based activity including sailing, paddling, snorkelling, fishing and diving. Even a swimming experience takes on a new dimension here. For those who are even more active, there is a tennis court.

The 19 villas (or bures as they are known in Fiji) are carefully and throughfully placed along the south coast of the island and are encapsulated by our top 2 premium villas; The Point and Vale Viqi.

The major influence in the design of the Bures is Santa Fe meets the South Pacific. The idea was to ensure that each Bure embodied a barefoot luxury essence, in a simple space in which to free the mind and refresh the soul. Enjoy easy access to the water, each Bure with its own stretch of white sand.

Vatulele Island Resort is recognised for providing guests the opportunity to experience the best food and beverage in the region. In welcoming warm weather, dining is on the terrace of the large central pavilion overlooking the lagoon."

Our thoughts on Vatulele Island Resort
If you are looking for a mad, frantic rush, this may not be the place for you. In our experience, a holiday at up-market Vatulele is all about relaxation, renewal, excellent food, great company and gentle activity in a truly idyllic setting. The bures are so well set up, private, welcoming and comfortable that you don't feel like spending too much time away from your own bure environment. If you wish, you can have dinner delivered to your bure and even have a relaxing massage right in your own bure too.

Dining at Vatulele is a very good experience. The food is stunning and the regular movement of the dinner venue is enjoyable. Dining is at a big communal table, but there are plenty of opportunities for romantic couples retreats too, either in your own bure, under a private, thatched lamp-lit beach hut or even at a single table for two in the Resort's wine cellar. Romantic breakfasts or lunches can be organised on nearby Nookie Nookie Island, Vatulele's own private off-shore island which you have all to yourself for the occasion.

Everyone relaxes and unwinds in this very special place.

Your Bure Options
If you are paddling around out on the lagoon in front of the Resort and look back towards the beach, the only part of the bures you see is the high thatched roofs hidden away in the natural tropical surrounding. However, when you are at home in your bure, even though you are secluded, you still enjoy the close-up views of the beach and the lagoon. All bures, with  the exception of the 2 Beach Bures  are at least 20 metres apart and the tropical bush between provides almost complete privacy one from the other. The 2 Beach Bures are a little closer together. The 19 bures of Vatulele are spread along the beautiful beach, with the "Honeymoon Bure", the Vale Viqi, or the "Pink House" at one end of and "The Point" at the other. Of the remaining 17 bures the 2 Beach Bures are the furthest away from the central pavilion.
