Taveuni Island, Fiji
Raiwasa Private Retreat
Raiwsa Private Retreat
This 2,200 square foot property is not only one of the most luxurious properties in all of Fiji, but also one of the world’s most exclusive and private hideaways. This three-bedroom home is a dream home in a dream location.
Be pampered like royalty by a staff of twelve (12) in an awe-inspiring tropical setting few people ever get to appreciate. You’ll marvel at the unique sights, sounds, and tastes of a pristine environment that blends five-star comfort and lifestyle experiences you will never forget.
It’s perched high above the South Pacific, with an awesome 180-degree view overlooking the Somosomo Straight and surrounded by a lush tropical carpet of green rainforest and swaying palm trees. The dramatic sunsets are equaled only by the brilliance of the stars at night.
Sitting on three acres of land and superbly-manicured gardens, Raiwasa offers the privacy and understated luxury of a world-class retreat. The three-sided infinity pool is ideally situated to give stunning views of the deep blue and green ocean waters. A series of steps take you down to the private beach.
Two exquisitely-decorated suites are connected by a central living and offset kitchen area, designed to maximize the stunning ocean and garden views. The master bedroom has large bi-fold doors that open onto the wraparound deck. Both bathrooms provide twin honeymoon showers and outdoor bathtubs. Just imagine soaking in the fresh open air with an unfettered view of the stars with the soothing sound of the ocean waves in the background.
The exploration - Taveuni island has lush and beautiful rainforests with pristine waterfalls, blow holes, hiking adventures, bird watching, coastal fishing, horseback riding and so much more. Scuba diving and snorkeling is a short 15 min boat ride to the world-renowned Rainbow reef also called the soft coral capital of the world. You will never be bored.
The Culture - Raiwasa provides amazing yet safe cultural experience right in the privacy of the property. You can experience the traditional Lovo (underground cooking experience), the traditional Meke (Fijian dance), and an extremely authentic Kava ceremony (usually reserved for the chiefs and honored guests of Fiji).
An environment acclaimed so much by seasoned world travelers that they begin to run out of superlatives. Spectacular, superb, amazing, perfect, and speechless are just some of the words that have been used. When well-versed guests tell you, the food is the best they’ve ever tasted and the service is second-to-none you know you’ve found your own little piece of paradise. Kick back and relax like you’ve never relaxed before, or experience emotionally connected activities. The choice is always yours.

Best trip ever
Raiwasa is without question, the best vacation we have ever experienced. From the time we arrived until our plane took off, every need was accommodated and the level of service was impeccable. Richie and the whole team were incredible and we left feeling like we were a part of the Raiwasa family. We took full advantage of the activities offered and learned so much about the special island of Taveuni and Fijian culture. While we did a lot of exploring and activities, there was still plenty of time for a daily massage and relaxing by the pool. To say the food at Rawaisa is incredible would be an understatement. The garden on the property provides so many fresh, local fruits that are served daily. Everything we ate was thoughtfully and beautifully prepared. Meals were a stand-alone experience every time we sat down to eat. The best part of our trip to Raiwasa was the people who are there. Richie and team are thoughtful, kind and anticipate every need. It is a true team effort, and we loved getting to know each special person who is part of the team. Everyone contributed something unique to the overall experience during our week there. The level of service is incredible. Raiwasa exceeded every expectation we had. My husband and I went for a week-long vacation just the two of us, but we can’t wait to return with our children. If you are considering a trip to Raiwasa, don't hesitate another second, book now!”
