The SpaceIsland Breeze can cater for up to 6
people and is designed to accommodate one or two families. A huge kitchen/living area which opens on to a covered deck and pool area, has been designed to allow the cool breezes to flow through the entire house. Natural ventilation and fans provide comfort when the hot weather prevails.
From an elevated, waterfront position, you may relax on the deck which surrounds a beautiful fully tiled, wet edge pool and soak up the amazing vista watching the ever changing colours of the reef as the tides ebb and flow, with the deep blue ocean beyond.
However, if you want some action, see Lai, our local caretaker to arrange a visit to a local village to experience the Fijian culture, a drive to a waterfall including a fun bush walk, a visit to the pearl farm, a stroll through Savusavu town, spending time paddling the sea kayaks, or fishing along the reef. These are among the treats you may experience. After all the excitement, you may order a massage by our local Fijian girl to put you back into a relaxed mood.

The NeighborhoodIf you have ever dreamed of a sweetly scented South Pacific port nestled on the foreshore of a beautiful, sweeping bay, backed by rugged, tropical green hills and filled with hibiscus flowers, chances are your image looks a lot like Savusavu (population 4970). It’s a timeless little town where everyone smiles and says ‘bula’, and there are several good restaurants, bars and well-stocked stores. The stunning looks and ease of living continue to seduce folks to stay longer than planned and many foreigners have snapped up land in the hills and surrounding coast. As such, there’s an uncommonly large but very laidback ex-pat community.
East of Savusavu the Hibiscus Hwy stretches for 70 miles up the coast. It’s a lazy drive through avenues of palm trees, past blue bays and old plantations.
Savusavu is also the sole port of entry on Vanua Levu for yachts, and one of the most popular places in Fiji for visiting yachties to put down anchor. Others come by cruise ship just for a day to explore the town and shop for souvenirs at the small stalls set up especially for the visitors. There is an excellent marina here and Savusavu Bay fills up with vessels during the high season.
Savusavu's picturesque reputation as a hidden paradise belies its true beauty of humanity and tranquility. Like a world away from the rest of the country, the iconic Vanua Levu town still maintains its charm and welcoming nature of yesteryear. But with cultural tourism on the rise, Savusavu's untouched paradise is in a perfect position to take advantage of the tourism dollar. This is Savusavu. And welcome to a Taste of Paradise...
If you've never visited this iconic town, it's hard to describe why it feels so different. Whether it is because of the early European influence or whether Vanua Levu is a distance away from the hustle and bustle of urban life on Viti Levu, Savusavu is an untouched paradise like no other.
Whether you arrive by boat or plane, there is a sense of amazement at the stunning beauty of Savusavu. The lush tropical greenery of the surrounding hills and the shimmering turquiose blue bay, combine with the extraordinary friendliness of the Savusavu locals that sets this island apart. As many locals tell me, this is Savusavu, not Fiji!
Savusavu’s own wonder of nature, the hot springs, is a remnant of millions of years of volcanic activity on the island. Deep down into the Earth's crust, the rock is still superheated. As the rainwater travels down from the top of the mountains, the water seeps into the fissures and eventually hits the hot core.
Through holes in the surface, the steaming hot water bubbles to the top at temperatures of between 120 and 170 degree Celsius, making it the perfect natural steaming kitchen. It's little wonder the locals take their root crops, chickens and pigs down to the hot springs; it's quick, clean and self-cleaning!
Savusavu's economy relies on copra, pine timber and taro as its mainstays of the local business, but tourism is on the increase, and Savusavu has the potential to become the next biggest hotspot for international visitors looking to experience the way the world should be. It is also an opportunity for locals to showcase their culture and everyday life; because tourists will pay for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a Fijian for the day.
Leaving Savusavu town, we head out on a catch and cook adventure thirty minutes down the Hibiscus highway to Nagigi Village. We catch up with a local who has turned his everyday life into an attractive cultural tourism business that gives visitors a taste of living in a coastal village with spear and net fishing, an island lovo, snorkeling and the chance to sit on the beach to do nothing.
It may sound normal and boring to locals, but the chance to live the simple life is priceless for everyone else. That is the beauty of Savusavu.
Getting AroundJust a one hour flight from Nadi (Fiji International Airport) over the rugged mountains and the beautiful aqua pools among the many coastal reefs lies Savusavu, on the northern island of Vanua Levu. Island Breeze is just 5 kms from Savusavu town and 2.5 kms from Savusavu Airport. We will provide free shuttle service from Savusavu Airport on your arrival and return you to the Airport on departure.
