Aroha Taveuni Beachfront Bures construction began in 2008, built from scratch on vacant land with personal project management by the owners Denis and Ngaire Irwin.
Business commenced in 2010 with 2 guest bures, garage and workshed and temporary owners accommodation.
Additional phases of development added the current owners accommodation, restaurant and bar and other outbuildings and facilities.
Modern and solid building techniques are coupled with traditional Fijian style and personal touches from New Zealand to realise a resort that sits favourably in its natural surroundings.
All construction exceeds current Fiji building regulations and can be locked down (stormproofed) in the event of threatening weather. The property has experienced 2 Category 5 cyclones with minimal or no damage when much of the island suffered great destruction.
The owners bure is a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom accommodation, including tropical style outdoor shower area, indoor shower areas, plus office and laundry/utility rooms, all fully furnished with a combination of quality hardwood floors and stone tile.
The main living area is an open plan design with fitted kitchen, breakfast bar and lounge leading out via folding doors to ocean view decking, 10 metre infinity swimming pool, manicured lawn area with tropical plants and trees. A few more short steps takes you directly to the beach looking out to the Somosomo Strait.
With accommodation like this you may feel you’re on holiday every day.
The owners bure is conveniently set between the “Kai Time” bar and restaurant and the guest bures.
Family Guest Bure
The family guest bure consists of a master bedroom with King Size bed, bathroom and outdoor shower, with an adjoining bedroom with 3 single beds, bathroom with indoor shower. 2 single beds can be converted to a King Size double bed when required.
Both rooms are tastefully decorated with artwork and local artifacts, furnished with desk and storage areas and bedside units. Both rooms also have air conditioning plus fans for cooling and louvered windows for tropical breezes to flow and listen to the lapping of waves upon the shore.
The exterior covered deck houses a kitchenette with fridge-freezer, microwave, and kitchenware to prepare snacks or light meals, plus glass-topped tables and chairs.
A few steps further out are shade umbrellas and comfortable loungers to take in the view of the gardens, ocean, sunsets, local fishermen and other boats passing by along the Somosomo Strait.
Standard Guest Bure
The 3 Standard guest bures are identical in size and layout and furnished in the same style as the family bure, and with the same amenities, eg air conditioning, kitchenette and tropical style outdoor showers to complement the interior bathroom areas.
Each accommodation has it’s own unobstructed view to the front of the grounds, beach and ocean with plenty of space for lounging and sunbathing.
Bar Restaurant and Social Areas
Resort guests and members of the public are fed and watered in the “Kai Time” bar and restaurant area. The interior area comprises commercial kitchen, bathrooms, dining area, service bar, a wood-fired pizza oven, and seats up to 30 guests for formal dining.
Outside is additional seating for formal dining plus bar stool and bar table style social area for those that prefer a less formal al-fresco atmosphere with lawn grass, coconut trees, tropicals plants and flowers, ocean views and spectacular sunsets throughout the year.
The bar and restaurant is very popular with a diverse range of locals, many of whom will become your friends.
All timber furniture was constructed onsite from quality Fijian hardwoods by Denis Irwin – you won’t find anything better locally !
Garage, Workshop and Laundry
The resort work areas lie at the far (southern) end of the property, constructed with the same quality and style as the public, guest and owners buildings.
The large garage/workshop offers plenty of space for carpentry projects, repairs, tools and equipment storage, spare parts plus washing machines for resort laundry.
More than 100 feet of covered laundry lines allow for natural air-drying and reduced power consumption.
A private bure in traditional Fijian style for massage and spa treatments lies between the owners accommodation and the Kai Time bar and restaurant.
Chill Room and Timber Storage Shed
The Chill room is a converted sea container located behind the bar and restaurant for easy access to food and beverage supplies, with chest freezers and shelving for dry goods, tins, jars etc.
Adjacent to the chill room is a storage area for timber to fuel the wood-fired pizza oven located just inside the restaurant area.
Parking and Road Frontage
The resort guest and staff car park is located at the southern end of the property with sufficient space for 6-8 vehicles.
The “Kai Time” restaurant car park lies at the northern end and can accommodate 8-10 vehicles.
Both are laid with natural coral.
Aroha Taveuni Beachfront Bures lies on a stretch of the Southern Coastal Road between Wairiki and Waiyevo.
