c/o Old Capital Inn,
Levuka, Fiji Islands
The small resort on Nukulevu is a small locally owned venture run by Suzie who also runs the Old Capital Inn in Levuka.
It supports local small businesses, farmers, and fishermen, our guests are encouraged to do the same. We buy organic and farm direct whenever possible. Most of the food served comes from within a five-kilometer radius of the island.
We use Solar Power where we can and this is supplemented by a diesel-run generator when necessary.
We avoid waste as much as possible. Anything that can be reused is recycled or put on the compost to become organic fertilizer. Please avoid plastic waste.
Our organic vegetable garden between the accommodation area and the tropical forest grows pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, coconut, banana, tomato, beans, cucumber, eggplant, pumpkin, spinach, and more.
Our future plan is an organic permaculture farm with laying hens (no rooster – makes too much noise) that provide fresh organic eggs daily.
All of our friendly staff hail from the surrounding villages on the neighboring island and ensure you have a unique experience of Fijian hospitality away from the crowds.
If this is something for you then pay us a visit for an authentic Fiji island experience!
