Savusavu villa description

Korovesi Villa is situated on eight manicured acres enjoying majestic panoramic views of Savusavu bay. It is located only 10 minutes from Savusavu airport and just down the road from the famous Cousteau Resort, and is the perfect location for a luxurious South Pacific experience. The estate was designed by award winning Australian architect Madeleine Blanchfield, and no expense has been spared in ensuring guests are accommodated in style. The villa is ideal for a large family, a group of friends, or even an intimate wedding or romantic honeymoon.The villa is comprised of seven separate buildings on two levels. The kitchen, living area, spacious master bedroom and infinity pool comprise the upper level while the lower level (connected by a 30m pathway) houses four ‘bures’ (two with queen beds and two with triple bunks, enabling the villa to comfortably sleep six adults and six kids). There are two beautiful formal eating areas, one indoor and one outdoor, each with expansive views of the bay and the lush green mountains beyond. The open-concept kitchen is designed with a separate food preparation area, and there is the choice to have food cooked in a conventional oven, large wood-fired pizza oven, gas bbq, or Webber bbq. 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 set in lush surrounds. The lower level bures are organized in sets of two with each set comprising two rooms. Each set has 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 rooms all enjoy stunning views of the bay and each boasts a private deck and hammock. A separate massage 'bure' is located amidst the branches of an enormous rain tree. The boat shed is located at the water level and houses mountain bikes, kayaks, snorkeling equipment and golf clubs, all of which are all included for use during your stay. There is also the option to hire to hire our boat (a 23 ft skiff) which can be used for fishing, diving and water sports. There is a playing field with stunning views to the rear of the villa where guests can enjoy volleyball, basketball, footy etc, and there are activities to wear down the most energetic of kids (trampoline, flying fox, rope swings etc. etc).The five friendly staff will ensure you are well looked after during your stay. They are available to do cooking, housekeeping and provide general assistance to ensure you have a truly relaxing holiday experience.

                      Why the Owner Chose Savusavu:
                      We purchased the property after falling in love with the planet's friendliest locals, who reside in one of the worlds most beautiful locations. The awesome fishing in the Savusavu bay area helped clinch the deal! We then spent two years building our dream home

                      The amazing panoramic views over Savusavu bay and the worlds most exquisite sunsets
