Korovesi Villa in Cakaudrove, Fiji
This magnificent villa is located near the town of Savusavu, in the Cakaudrove province of Fiji. Having been penned down by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects from Australia the so-called Korovesi Villa rises from the island, above the sea, in pride and splendor.
A holiday home by definition, the Korovesi Villa is able to accommodate up to 10 guests and can be booked all year around, for somewhere between $5,600 and $11,200 per week, related to the number of guests and the season.
Currently owned by Gavin Vanderplank, Korovesi Villa tops a superbly trimmed 8-acre property with breathtaking panoramas of the Savusavu Bay. Found 10 minutes away from Savusavu Airport, down the road from the fabled Cousteau Resort, it’s absolutely ideal for a tranquil vacation on the shores of the South Pacific. It can easily accommodate a large family or a decent numbered group of friends willing to party up in full exoticness. The villas unfolds between seven separate buildings on two levels, comprising a lavish master bedroom, infinity pool, kitchen and living area on the upper level, while the lower level includes 4 “bures”.
There are gorgeous dining areas both inside and outside, sharing expansive panoramas of the bay and the lush greenness below. There’s also an open-plan kitchen with separate food preparation area and the choice to have food cooked in either a large wood-burning pizza oven, gas barbecue, Webber barbecue or conventional oven.
The owner describes the amenities Korovesi Villa comprises in a very beautiful manner, stating “it is very well equipped with two dishwashers, two fridges, as well as expansive cupboard and counter space. There is a traditional lovu pit (Fijian earthen oven) at the rear of the house which also has a spit bbq and a separate outdoor dining area in lush surrounds. The lower level bures are organized in sets of two with each set comprising two rooms. Each set has a queen bed in one room, and is connected to a second room with three king single bunk beds via a shared bathroom. The air-conditioned bedrooms enjoy stunning views of the bay and each boasts a private deck and hammock.”
Among the enormous branches of a rain tree, a separate massage bure can be found. If the tree-top bure is not being used for spa purposes, it can work as a one off dining spot. There’s also a boat shed at the water level, housing state of the art snorkeling equipment, golf clubs, kayaks and mountain bikes, all included during your stay.
Furthermore, if you’re looking forward to converting your holiday into a luxury fishing charter experience, the two local fishing boats alongside full fishing equipment and a guide are available on demand, for a higher price. As for the staff, they live in a separate house on the property and are able to fully tend to your needs at any time and for any purpose. There’s also the possibility to have a masseuse or a babysitter on request, for a very low price.
