Yadua Island, FijiBy Private Islands Magazine • May 21st, 2009 • Category: Islands for Sale
What comes to mind when you think of Fiji? An exaltation of colourful exotic birds, and twisting vines dripping with large, fragrant flowers. Romantic, candlelit dinners against a backdrop of mountain peaks and brilliant ocean sunsets. Smiling, friendly locals greeting you every way you turn with a melodious “Bula”. And of course, some of the world’s most beautiful tropical islands, many home to luxurious resorts favoured by royalty – Hollywood and otherwise. Make an offer, and one of them could one of them be yours.
Serious offers are now being accepted under a Deadline Private Treaty until July 10th on the 27-acre Yadua Island, a perfect green jewel set against deep blue Koro Sea. Part of Fiji’s renowned Mamanuca Group, Yadua is centrally located and ideal for resort development, and this exciting proposal means that the island could sell for significantly less than estimated value. Also undoubtedly the South Pacific’s strongest tourism economy, real estate investment in Fiji has historically been some of the most profitable in the region, and continues to thrive even in the global economic downturn.
Uninhabited, untouched, and with just the hint of neighbouring isles on the horizon - it’s hard to imagine that this remote-seeming island is just a 10 minute flight from the capital of Fiji, the charming city of Nadi. There you’ll find an international airport and all amenities, making your tropical isle just a little more hospitable than Robinson Crusoe’s. But with its majestic hillside covered in rich green forests, and a sparkling white beach gazing out on to clear lagoon waters, there is no question you’ll feel a world apart from the pressures of civilization.
Within just a 20-minute boat ride, you’ll find a wide variety of restaurants and attractions on the surrounding isles, like the popular Castaway, Plantation and Mana Islands. Some of the world’s premier diving and surfing sites can also be found within minutes, which is just one of the reasons why Yadua is so ideal for tourism development. Plans for a luxurious resort with a complex of holiday villas, created by an expert architect, are available to purchasers who want to take advantage of Fiji’s booming tourism industry.
If pursued, the incredible proposal for Yadua’s development will be a stand-out among Fijian island resorts, with an eco-friendly sensibility that makes full use of the island’s stunning topography. An airy, Balinese-style central core would lead into winding pathways connecting to 10 chic ‘bures’, or casual island-style residences. Each bure would have a private, secluded feel, while providing gorgeous sea views. The project would also include a marina, areas for watersports, pathways throughout the island’s forests, and most strikingly, a man-made lagoon in the hollow of the island’s ancient volcanic crater.
Of course, Yadua is also a perfect size for personal use, and if you choose, the island could be yours alone, home to just a luxury residence hidden on its sweeping cliff sides. Opportunities for investment in Yadua are available both as an entire purchase, or a 50% share of the New Zealand company that owns the island. The future of Fijian tourism shines brightly, and whether your ambition is the creation of Fiji’s newest celebrity resort or just an island paradise to call your own, Yadua is a rare opportunity for a limited time only.
