Vatulele Island is a stunning 31square KM (12 square miles) in area, and similar in shape to a footprint. Apart from the resort, the only other inhabitants live in 4 native Fijians villages with a population of around 1000 located on the Northern side of the island. These people form most of the resorts staff. They are unspoiled by Western influences, and to the delight of our guests, maintain their natural gentleness and warmth
Received the 2010 award for leading Fiji resort from World Travel Awards!
“Nothing happens unless first we dream.” Carl Sandburg.
The dream of Vatulele was realized when the Resort first opened back in May 1990. Fiji’s Vatulele Island Resort has won accolades around the world since its opening day. Noted for its attention to detail and extraordinary Santé Fe design, the unique boutique island is often hailed as one of the top ten barefoot chic hideaways in the world.
Basic design was inspired by an American “coffee table” publication called Santé Fe Style, written by Christopher Maher and Sharon Woods. Sharon became a visual consultant during conceptual stages and worked with Santé Fe architect, Doug Nelson.
Since opening in 1990, Vatulele has developed an enviable reputation in every corner of the globe. Set on a magnificent lagoon, the beauty of the site is coupled with a unique architectural style.
Priding itself on offering the utmost in luxurious and opulent service, Vatulele will cater to your every whim.

The 19 Villas or bures (pronounced boo-rays) are carefully and thoughtfully placed along the South coast of the island and are encapsulated by our 2 top premium villas; The Point and Vale Viqi.The major influence in the design of the Bures is Santa Fe meets 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.
These Bures offer incredible value with direct access to the beautiful white sandy beach. Twelve doors open to an expansive terrace, and from the living room, you walk up three steps to the bedroom, with a king-sized bed and a dressing area. These Bures offer air-conditioning, mini bar, and wine cooler, DVD player with flat screen monitor, sound system, hammock and outdoor shower. The only difference between these and the Deluxe Beach Bure is that they are located at the far end of the resort and are positioned slightly closer to each other.

Vatulele Island Resort is recognized for providing guests the opportunity to experience the best food and beverage in the region. In the welcoming warm weather, dining is on the terrace of the large central pavilion overlooking the lago.
The bar provides a perfect setting to relax any time of the day or evening serves an array of cocktails and healthy drinks. By night, tables are set beneath the stars and lit with lanterns and candlelight. Fresh ingredients are sourced from the resort’s own gardens and an emphasis is on seafood from the Fijian waters.
Enjoy private dining in your own Bure, in the wine cellar or on the beach set beneath the stars and lit with lanterns and candlelight. A well-stocked wine cellar offers an outstanding selection of wines to compliment the delicious cuisine and stunning settings.
Due to the Resorts geographic location the emphasis has been put on fine wines from the two main wine producers of the Region; Australia and New Zealand. We have travelled to these countries in order to select some of the best and rarest wines from very select boutique wineries.
Nevertheless we have not forgotten the origins of wine thus we have also focused on some classical French wines and a discovery of some Spanish wines. We sincerely hope that you will find wines to your taste and will discover new favorites among our selection.
Please do not hesitate to ask for a tour of our wine cellar just a few meters away from the main Bure, as well as to book the wine cellar for a romantic dinner just for two!
