Seclusion, Relaxation and Adventure Await
The Remote Resort in northern Fiji offers just that— remote privacy and luxury—with just four freestanding villas welcoming couples or families to this 64-acre private peninsula in Vanua Levu. With some of the best reefs in Fiji minutes away, beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, lots of privacy, and authentic Fijian food and activities, you’ll fall in love with The Remote Resort!
Opening just two years ago in July 2013, owner Dan Dimmock built the resort from the ground up using as many natural resources as possible. The private peninsula with an inlet on one side has gorgeous white sandy beaches. Dimmock says he used Vesi timber (heavy hardwood) from the land. In addition, he kept the already growing coconut grove and wild gardens of papaya and mango.
“My philosophy is this, no matter who you are, you deserve to experience beauty of all kinds, from sight, sounds, to the palette,” says Dimmock. “To invoke curiosity within yourself and not necessarily know how or why you have these emotional connections but know they are what life is for. I strive to create those moments for our guests.”
Since Dimmock is a self-proclaimed foodie and a hobby Chef, the food is incredibly important at his resort. You’ll have a fresh feast with fruit and vegetables from the resort garden and local seafood caught from Fijian fishermen. You’ll sample fish like walu, tuna, parrot fish, and other fresh reef fish. Guests can even see the fruits and veggies growing as they walk around the island, which include bush lemon, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, eggplant, herbs, avocado, cucumber, pumpkin, watermelon, local dalo, cassava, and breadfruit.
“I didn’t want to compromise on the cuisine; I wanted guests to experience incredible food pairings in unique settings everywhere on the property,” says Dimmock. “There’s something to be said about eating fresh caught lobster and pairing it with a fantastic wine on a beachfront deck facing the Pacific Ocean.”
Chefs move between the fully equipped kitchen, the twin wood-fired ovens at the bar, and the traditional Fijian Lovo (in-ground cooking). Therefore, meals are served at a variety of locations including on a remote beach or on your beachfront deck. Guests even get a cell phone to place their order!
Exploring the Soft Coral Capital of the World
The resort is minutes from the Rainbow Reef, one of Fiji’s most beautiful reefs and a reef that helps give Fiji the title of “soft coral capital of the world.” Snorkelers and divers alike all have this reef on their bucket list. With professional PADI instructors and fully equipped boats with gear, you will be ready to see the underwater marvels with the resort’s instructors as your guide.
The rustic, luxurious villas are designed with dark Vesi timber and decorated with white linens and turquoise accents. The modern villas are designed to allow you to feel authentic Fiji while enjoying luxurious accommodations.
The 750 square feet Oceanfront Pool Villas allow guests to enjoy ocean views from every angle. They each have large decks and plunge pools, oversized daybeds, outdoor bathrooms, and glass panels for maximum ocean breezes. The villas are also spread far apart from each other and have curtains for extra privacy.
The Two-Bedroom Oceanfront Pool Villa is 1,000 square feet and located at the far end of the resort overlooking the ocean. This villa features a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a private plunge pool, and large deck directly on the ocean. This accommodation is ideal for families or two couples traveling together.
Variety of Activities
The resort has such a variety of things to do including adventure activities like kayaking to hidden mangroves, snorkeling with manta rays, hiking to Buca Waterfall, kite surfing, and diving. The resort does a great job presenting the local culture with activities like Coconut 101, where you’ll learn ways the coconut tree is important to Fijians, Fijian cooking class, Fijian music and Kava ceremony, coastal walks and even handline fishing like the locals.
For low-key days and nights, take a Catamaran day sail, have unlimited massages, enjoy beautiful beaches in front of your villa, and lounge at night near fire pits on the beach.
The Remote Resort is located on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji. Once in Nadi, guests can take a flight to Taveuni or Savusavu. They are both an hour and ten-minute flight. The resort will pick you up for a car and boat ride to the property. The commute is well worth the seclusion and luxury you will be experiencing!
