Vonu is Fijian for "Turtle", and like a turtle in his shell, the Vonu Hut sets nestled in the lush gardens with some ocean view and easy direct beach access. Sleeps up to 2 adults/1 child. Very cozy cottage with all the comforts of home. Same fantastic amenities as our other cottages although the ocean view is not quite as wide and no microwave. Save money and still enjoy the Fijian lifestyle on this expansive beachfront property.

May 2023(Australia)

the location was amazing. right on the beach. it was unbelievably quiet and beautiful gardens. staff so friendly. but a little bit dark inside

Response by Gene (May 2023)

Hi Melanie!
Thanks for the tip. We've put larger light bulbs in and fixed one of the ten fixtures that was in need of repair. It took a while to get the part imported to repair the fan/light.
It was nice having you for a visit.
Take care,

Lovely cottage near Savusavu

April 2023(Australia)

Very nice location, there is a double reef and they provide kayaks and snorkelling gear. The housekeeper is very friendly and available to help you. We had airport pick-up and drop-off. Bablu took us to the Vuadomo village and rainfall for a fair price. The cottage has everything you need.

Disliked that the hot water was broken and it couldn’t be repaired since we stayed during Easter. It wasn’t their fault but we still took cold showers for 3 days.

Response by Gene (April 2023)

Bula Laura!
I'm so sorry about the water heater! Fortunately, it's not actually cold here. ;-)  But I know a hot shower is nice sometimes and you deserve it! We tried calling several service men to no avail. Being a 4 day weekend, most, if not all ;-)  were away. Maintaining 4 star accommodations can be challenging is such a remote location. Only 15 min drive to town. But sometimes days away from civilization ;-) Thank you for your understanding. We got the heater repaired. But I'm shopping for a new one next week to be sure no more guests are disappointed for a long time to come. Best wishes in all your future travels.

Dreamy, well equipped cottage, gorgeous beach, very cozy, comfortable and private

February 2022(USA)

The cottage had everything we could need. Very well thought out, excellent view, cozy bed, AC functioned properly and had temperature control. Subash (property manager) was very helpful and always so friendly. There were also many screened windows to allow for good air flow if AC was not desired. The porch was large and we had a dog/cat join us for relaxing most days.

The beach is a stones throw away that you can view from your couch inside or the porch outside. The kitchen is well equipped with a 4 burner gas cook top, plenty of pots, pans, and cutlery. The inside and outside showers were nice and the toilet was in its own room separate from the sink area and shower. Kayaks were available to use free of charge.

There were many sea creatures to be found by hiking along the shoreline or down the beach to the left when facing the ocean. At low tide you can walk around the point and check out some interesting rock formations. We saw plenty of star fish, sea stars, sea cucumbers, a few eels, and many beautiful sea shells some with resident hermit crabs.

Hello Saubs,
Thanks for such detailed review of your experience! The septic situation during your visit was a freak incident. It's never happened before or since. really!

Our dog Tuktuk is normally tied at night so she can't disturb our guests. Very sorry about that. I have reminded our property manager to tie her at night. She's on a runner cable and has a house. So she's comfortable in any case. We have installed another light in the living room that is also a bluetooth speaker. The under-cabinet light above the stove has also been installed. Thanks for that tip!

Fruit-Shakes overloaded!

July 2018(Germany)

I was living in the Vonu Hut for two weeks, had an amazing time! Wonderful garden, pure white and empty beach, tons of fresh fruits to make Banana-Papaya-Coco-Mango-Pinapple-... shakes all day (had blender in the kitchen). Highly recommend this place, it feels like a homestay, and the owner is fun :) Welcome to paradise!

What you see is what you get!

May 2013(Wellington, New Zealand)

My partner and i recently spent four nights at Sigasiga sands and absolutely loved it.

Being Divers we prefer to spend our money on having more holidays nand more activities rather than having more luxury. We stayed in the Vonu Bure and it absolutely lived up to our expectations. The website is a very accurate reflection of what the property is about. The accommodation was very simple but exactly what we were after, clean, tidy, well presented and quiet. The kitchenette was great, it had all the tools we needed to cook for ourselves which we did every morning and evening. (There's a great butchers, supermarket and market in Savusavu so getting quality supplies is dead easy!)

Gene is a wonderful host, he met us at the airport anbd plied us with fresh coocnut juice and pawpaw (and even made sure we had a couple of cold beers after i forgot to get supplies in town (DOH!!)). Nothing was a problem for him or his superfiendly staff and we very much felt part of the 'family'.

We spent most of our spare time (when we weren't diving with the fantastic team at Koro Sun Dive) snorkelling on the reef. It's a bit of trek across the flats to the reef but certainly well worth the effort. Gene's got a fairly extensive DVD library which we made use of each night before comfortably drifting off to the land of nod.

As a travel and tourism professional I'm always quick to pick up on a products faults. I can honestly say the product is very well presented and abosolutley lived up to all of our expectations. I certainly have no hesitiation recommending Sigasiag sands to others and will defintately go back next time we're in Savusavu.

Thanks Gene, Saneeta, Subesh and Geeta!

PS: get a massage from Geeta - Great massage and awesome value for money!
