Romancing the South Pacific

by posted in RESIDENCE

Over the past few years, a residential and resort community has quietly risen around the turquoise bay of Malolo. Now you can own a jewel on the shores of Fiji’s iconic Mamanucas islands.

Six Senses Residences Fiji is set in a private paradise known as Vunabaka, a name stemming from the beautiful banyan trees (‘baka’ in vernacular Fijian) and rainforest that permeate the property. Three- to five-bedroom residences are woven into the landscape of rocky headlands, pristine beaches and lush rainforests to create an intimate community of tropical opulence.

Acclaimed New Zealand architect Richard Priest was inspired by the location’s abundant natural beauty and the splendor of traditional Fijian designs. The result is a collection of residences with low environmental impacts and organically elegant interiors that offer spacious living areas while emphasizing the beauty outside.

Properties for sale have ocean, beachfront or marina views. All come with private pools, spacious decks, fully equipped kitchens and barbecues. They also feature beautiful contemporary interior design, with hardwood floors, refined furnishings and traditional Fijian touches.

On the water

There are two marinas for easy access to your boat and the sea. The main marina has been built to world-class standards. It is tucked directly behind the sandy white beach of the Vunabaka shoreline, offering convenient water frontage and private jetties.

There is also unlimited access to every conceivable water activity offered to residents, including world-class surf, kite-surfing, sailing, diving, fishing and sea kayaking.

On the land

All 62 luxury residences are constructed on lots of between a third of an acre and two acres. Recognizing the property’s natural surroundings as a precious resource, the commitment of developers to protecting and persevering wildlife is reflected in extensive landscaping with indigenous plant species, maintenance of a large-scale greenhouse and gardens, and the undertaking of a reforestation program.


Fiji’s plethora of islands and precincts attract many overseas investors, but rarely has there been a project to match the scale, design and vision shown at Vunabaka. The development team at Six Senses Fiji will provide development support and assistance with permits, overseeing construction to ensure an outstanding final product.

When not occupied for personal use, owners of the residences have the choice to place their residence into our flexible rental program, which is managed by Six Senses Fiji.
