Wananavu!

The F$3 million dollar view

The F$3 million dollar view

So I got to visit this beautiful place in my island country Fiji.  Its  called Rakiraki, about three hours drive from Suva, the capital. Its simply amazing. Met the lovely couple John Gray and his wife who started Wananavu (wahh-nah-nah-voo) Resort there. By the way Wananavu means AWESOME, something that takes your breath away literally. And that’s what this place is all about.

The couple are selling their home, after more than 12 years staying there. Their house is going for $3.5m. With its beautiful location, perched up on the hillside overlooking the Viti Levu Bay (pronounced Vee-Tee-lay-voo; Fiji’s biggest island) i couldn’t help but marvel at the majestic view and awesomeness of the place

John is a New Zealander. He’s been in Fiji for over 21 years. They developed the very secluded Rakiraki hillside in the early 90s. People thought he was mad for doing so, what with the lack of electricity and water in the place. The place was run mainly by generators for the most part of its early years. But it took a visionary like John to take on something like this. But anyway the land lots up there are  now on sale apart from the couple’s home. The place would be great for vacation homes or  villas.

So if you’re interested in buying beautiful land up there, go for it. Its a great bargain right now. 🙂 Here’s a few shots i took from my phone.
