Nanuku Resort & Spa, Fiji10/08/2015
Fiji’s newest luxury escape
Heralding a new era for Fiji tourism and taking the destination’s luxury resort offering to levels previously unseen, Nanuku Resort & Spa officially opened its doors on 01 March 2014 and the international travel scene has been quick to take notice.
Located on the Pacific Coast of Viti Levu, Nanuku Resort & Spa is the first all-villa boutique resort to be built on the main island and the concept has proved an immediate winner.
Set in lush tropical gardens fronting pristine Beqa Lagoon on one of Viti Levu’s best sand beaches, the new resort’s design delivers what General Manager, Karen Taylor, says “melds contemporary luxury with traditional Fijian design.”
GM Taylor knows her stuff – her very impressive track record includes a stint at another of Fiji’s best known luxury hotspots – Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort on Savusavu – but all of her experience to date has been combined and condensed to deliver what many in
international tourism circles have described as the catalyst and vision for the future of Fijian tourism…and that place is Nanuku Resort & Spa.
A big call? Perhaps, but certainly Nanuku Resort & Spa has in its first few months of operation delivered and continues to deliver. The resort offers its guests a two-tiered choice of accommodation – the Vunikau Residence perched on a volcanic outcrop overlooking the lagoon and five striking Beachfront Residences. All residences have been designed with huge air-conditioned living and entertaining areas, luxurious en suites complete with spa baths, private yoga bures, plunge pools, media rooms, expansive decks and outdoor living rooms, private landscaped gardens and daybeds.
The resort has also placed heavy emphasis on its service delivery with personal butlers, chefs and private nannies on call to cater to every client need.
And, building on Fiji’s ever-growing reputation as the culinary capital of the South Pacific, the resort’s all-inclusive fine dining offering will focus on locally grown organic garden produce, the freshest of local seafood and the finest imported meats, all creating what GM Taylor describes as a “fabulous fusion of international and Fijian dishes”.
Personalised dining experiences can also be arranged in Kanavata Bar & Restaurant at the resort’s Club House, in-villa or in a variety of locations including the resort’s own private island.
The resort’s dedicated spa, ‘Lomana Spa & Wellness’ provides guests with access to a full range of spa treatments while yoga teachers and a personal trainer are also on hand.
Nanuku Resort & Spa is also ideally positioned as a perfect alternative for couples seeking to marry in Fiji, is an ideal romantic venue for honeymooners. But families too are well catered for with the resort’s ‘Lailai’ Children’s Club combining good old-fashioned fun with a special environmental and cultural learning program.
Safari adventures above and below the sea ensure older children and teenagers can also enjoy an age-appropriate fun and very active holiday.
And what to do on the outside? Step out of the front door and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the Pacific Coast, aka ‘Fiji’s Adventure Capital’ presenting you with access to myriad activities ranging from golf, zip lining, surfing and diving.
