Tuck yourself away in a magic environment with self sufficiency in mind but the capacity to let others enjoy and pay for the experience.
Wow – eco tourism has been a developing sector for the last decade or two but add the agricultural element to the equation and you have a very exciting concept and resort.
You could be living in paradise with an exciting easily managed business to ensure your wealth grows. Wealth is not measured in dollars in this part of the world - its about having the satisfaction of living the eco dream, having a farm and animals with local help to care for them, growing herbs and veges in the gardens, reaping the benefits of coconut products, fishing, diving and other advernture or passive endeavours. Not just for the guests but for you.
So grow your wealth the Palmlea way.
Picture eating fresh seafood daily and platters of tropical fruits.
So what will you own – FREEHOLD LAND – Yes FREEHOLD in Fiji.
Not only that but there is approximately 20 acres of lush land.
This property has a number of profit centres from food, beverage, accommodation, mooring, tours and the agriculture. But profit is not the key ingrediant here - this is a heavenly place to live and get some income. Of course if you want to work the business side then you can change the emphasis, if you wish.
On the accommodation side there are 4 deluxe villas including the new Honeymoon hilltop and 3 new traditional thatched bures with shared bath accommodating up to 20 at one time - supported by a 25 metre lap pool fruit trees, organic tropical gardens, jungle trails, private boat jetty.
The food and beverage side is largely centred around the island themed restaurant and bar. The fully licensed restaurant offers fine gourmet meals for all tastes: European, Fijian, Indian and vegetarian. The menu includes Mediterranean, Mexican and Asian. Organic produce grown on the property ensures fresh herbs and vegetables are available. The resort grows its own pineapples, melons, cassava, dalo and papaya. Seafood is fresh and comes from local fishermen.â€¨ Locals and visitors alike regard the cuisine as the best in Fiji: healthy, unique, and original. This is a very popular restaurant!
Our Fijian style villas, made of native hardwoods and pine covered in woven bamboo, feature large covered verandahs to catch the cooling trade winds. All villas overlook the spectacular palms and beautiful blue ocean. Deluxe one and two bedroom villas are furnished with queen or king-size beds and private bath. All villas are fly-screened and equipped with fans. There is room for up to 12 guests at any one point in time.
The owners accommodation is very generous and means that you and your family will be more than comfortable in paradise.
The resort owners have worked diligently to create a farm that embraces both traditional farming and permaculture methods as well as modern rooting and propagation techniques. The organic farm is the only one of its kind on Vanua Levu. They grow herbs, spices, fruits, and vegetables. The chickens lay eggs daily and the resort also operate a fully functioning Boer Goat Breeding Farm on the property. The breeding aspect is paying dividends with a number of the goats having been sold to a famous film star in recent times. The farm also features beehives that produce our delicious organic honey.
Its not just the sumptuous authentic villas, its not just the delicious healthy food, its not just because its eco friendly. It’s because it’s the whole package with trimmings.
Guests relax and cool down in the convenient pool or swim in pristine crystal clears waters beyond the white sand beaches.
They can walk around the farm discovering the amazing animals, vegetables, fruit and flora – and get to see how it all works.
The resort offers a plethora of activities that will suit both the hard core adventurer and the leisurely traveler on holiday. They organize sightseeing trips to Savusavu, Labasa Town, and surrounding areas.
Guests can visit a local village and participate in a welcome kava ceremony.
Palmlea provides cooking lessons, massages, diving, snorkeling, fishing, and surfing excursions. Most guests take the boat to the white sand island to find themselves surrounded by secluded Fijian paradise.
Or if guests just want to get a way and read a book then hammocks are awaiting.
A good source of business is from touring yachts who can safely anchor off the resort and come and enjoy its facilities. Some will spend a night or two on dry land but the revenue is an added bonus. They can run their tenders up onto the beach or dock larger vessels on the private 55 metre jetty.
The resort records that 17 cruising yachts moored in front of their jetty in 2011 – wow!
Palmlea Farms Resort is 18 minutes from the Labasa Airport. There are many local daily flights from Suva and Nadi to Labasa via Pacific Sun Airlines.
By Private Yacht
Yachts can anchor in 4m sand in front of the resort. GPS coordinates 16.24-728S and 179.14-120E off the jetty. The resort monitors on VHF 16.
Palmlea Farms is a 1 hr 15 minute drive from Savusavu, and a 20 minute drive from Labasa.
There is an extensive bus service available on the main islands, this is the most popular form of public transport for the visitors and locals alike.
Also available are taxis and deluxe coaches run by some of the resorts.

I spent a night here with my Dad and Aunty and we were so pleased to discover Palmlea. It's off the beaten track and requires a 4WD to navigate the roads, but the location is absolutely worth the effort. While the recent cyclone has altered the gardens, we enjoyed both the stunning sea views from the dining room and our delectable meals- the homemade pesto pasta was a highlight! Julie was a kind and attentive host. We were impressed to learn that the resort construction was a community affair involving local labour from a neighbouring village! For anyone content with rustic conditions, this is a hidden piece of paradise. We'll be back next time we come through Labasa.\
Date of stay: January 2021

This wonderful gem is off the beaten track and will greet you with stunning views,warm and friendly vibes. Julie and the staff go out of their way to make you feel like part of the family attending to your every need. The accommodation is well thought out, the pool is extremely inviting, we spent time on the paddle boards and kayaks down at the jetty in the sunshine, we spotted a sting ray and any number of cool fish from the jetty. The food is wonderful, a delicious breakfast and plenty of options throughout the rest of the day all cooked with homegrown veggies from the amazing garden. We visited Vanua Levu for the first time this trip and extended our stay as we didn't want to leave Palmlea Farms. Thank you all for such an amazing stay, we will be back as soon as possible. P.S. missing your hot sauce already.
