Our Story

In 2005, we left New Zealand to pursue our dream of living on a tropical island. With the blessing of our grandparents & parents, custodians of the island, our journey began.

As land that has been in our family for generations it was an honour for us to have the opportunity to build our home here in the Yasawas.

Memories of holidays, family gatherings, building both grandparents and parents first homes on an island, became the inspiration to building our very own.

The steel structural frames for our Natabe home were built in Auckland by Col and his dad, shipped to Fiji, and then barged to the island – an 8 month project in itself.

In 2012 our dream of a tropical retreat was a reality. Before long we realized we had to share the beauty of our home, and to open it as a B&B for discerning travelers was the only natural step to take.

We welcome you to unwind, relax and enjoy with us at Natabe Retreat in the magnificent Yasawa Islands.


Natabe Retreat offers 3 guests rooms with ensuites, two of which are located at the beach end of the home with queen size beds, ceiling fans & air-conditioning, internal and external access, large walk in wardrobes, hot and cold running water. Each guest room has a full glass front with views out over the tropical gardens and a private deck area. Guests also have full access to the spacious indoor/outdoor lounge areas, dining room and kitchen and complimentary wifi.

The property is an environmental marvel, powered by solar energy.

Perfect for singles, couples, or family bookings we are able to accommodate up to 6 people at a time. Your booking guarantees you exclusive use of the property for the duration of your stay, making this truly your own private Fiji retreat.
