Why long lee chose Vanua Levu

We loved the nature and the friendliness of the people especially in this area.This stunningly beautiful valley sweeps down to the waterway which feeds Fiji's Salt Lake from the Koro Sea. We enjoy all tide access to the Lake and the Koro Sea from our own waterfront.The land is very fertile and grows a huge array of tropical plants, palms,coconuts flowers and fruits. Acey is an avid fisherman and he can fish when ever the mood takes him.We wanted to escape cold winters and enjoy tropical living in a safe and healthy environment.

What makes this house unique

Beautifully remote yet only 20 minutes from Town we are perched on the edge of the waterway leading from the Koro Sea to Salt Lake surrounded by coconut plantations,reef, lake, river and rainforest.

This is the real Fiji.

Un lieu paradisiaque

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré cet endroit magnifique pour différentes raisons : l'espace organisé en maison ouverte est superbe, spacieux, charmant et arrangé avec beaucoup de goût, il s'y dégage une grande quiétude. La nature alentour est sublime, luxuriante, nos hôtes étaient à nos petits soins, toujours aimables et disponibles et très pros. Ils nous ont fait découvrir cette partie de l'île par ce qu'elle a de plus authentique, rencontrer un village Fidjien, goûter des saveurs inconnues. nous avons prolongé notre séjour initial de 3 jours car nous étions au paradis et avions le sentiment que le temps s'était arrêté, une certaine idée du "Fiji Time" ... Le principe 100% écologique du lieu, en harmonie avec la nature et les habitants est un aspect supplémentaire de notre emballement.

Un seul regret : habiter si loin de ce lieu paradisiaque ! Un grand merci à Andrew, Sonja, mais aussi Lily, Levacy, ...

Romantic Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was nicely nestled in a dense and largely untouched tropical mangrove forest right on the clear salt lake river. While it was only a short five minute walk from the main road, the lodge was wonderfully private. We were able to blast some tunes on their speaker system in the shared beach house area without concern of disturbing any neighbors.

We stayed in the Riversong Bure, which was a clean and beautiful little room situated a little ways away from the main area. When we were there, we were lucky to have the entire place to ourselves, but for those sharing the main beach house with other guests, our little bure would be the perfect private retreat. The kitchen was clean and modern and fully stocked. The owners, Andrew and Sonja, were great hosts giving us lots of local fruits and vegetables and accommodating our various needs. Using the free hand lines at the dock, we were able to catch large fish for almost every meal during our stay - so if you're a big fish eater you might get lucky with lots of delicious free meals.

All in all, the Salt Lake Lodge was a wonderful retreat and more than we could hope for. My husband and I were on our mini honeymoon and couldn't afford too much and the lodge far exceeded our expectations! Definitely stay here if you are looking for a really private escape and don't mind catering for yourself.

Unique, Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a month at Salt Lake Lodge and had one of the most memorable holidays of our lives. The property is beautiful, secluded, interesting, comfortable and the perfect place to relax and explore Fiji. Sonja and Andrew were very kind, knowledgable and accommodating throughout our stay, attending to details, providing an expert perspective into life in Fiji and making sure we were comfortable and happy. They were fantastic hosts. Don't miss the opportunity to go deep-sea fishing with Andrew! He went out of his way to make sure our kids got the chance to catch a fish and took us to beautiful spots around the coast. He and Sonja taught us about local wildlife, showed us how to harvest and prepare local fruit, "wowed" our kids with nature facts and projects and made sure we never ran out of fresh fruit and freshly-caught fish. We loved swimming in the lake, visiting the local village, kayaking, hiking, learning about local flora and fauna, eating fresh yellow fin tuna and barracuda, harvesting amazing local fruit, snorkeling, making friends with villagers and relaxing on our private beach.

The property is spotlessly maintained and admirably eco-friendly. There is plenty to do if you want an active holiday and lots of space and privacy to relax if you simply want to get away. Salt Lake Lodge is one in a million---don't miss it! Thanks again for everything, Sonja and Andrew!

Top marks again Sonja & Andrew!!!

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Salt Lake Lodge was very special to us as we were there for our honey moon 3 years ago. I can say that it was even better than the first time (if at all possible!!), the new deco looks amazing and the atmosphere even more peaceful. Sonja & Andrew were able to organise everything we wanted. Andrew took us fishing and our dinners turned into fish extravaganzas!!

The place is very well equipped, cleaned and perfectly maintained.

What is the most important to me is the seclusion and the ability to fully relax. Should we decide to get up to anything Sonja was able to organise it, either on site or through her contacts.

I would recommend this place to anyone wanting something better and more personal than the standard holiday resorts. There, one is able to actually discover the real Fiji which was very important to us.

Thank you very much Sonja & Andrew, you outdid yourselves once again.
