When developing this Fijian Island in 1990, we were determined to be at the forefront of sustainable & ecologically responsible development. We are mindful of our impact on the local environment and are committed to a carbon negative way of life.

Enjoy your private getaway knowing we are doing all we can to be sustainable & responsible for our environment.

Nukubati produces its own electricity with the first and largest solar power plant in Fiji, built in 1990. We can generate over 50 Kilowatts of electricity from the sun and wind every day. 

Fresh water is harvested rainwater, filtered and UV treated.

Hot water is produced by more than a dozen solar water heaters.

All domestic and grey water is recycled. Sewage is tertiary treated using natural bio-cycle systems with the refreshed and UV sterilised waste water being used on our gardens.

Nukubati grows its own organic vegetables and fruits, using tropical permaculture techniques. Other produce is acquired locally from fishermen or farmers in the area. All organic waste is composted for the gardens and other waste is recycled.

Nukubati intentionally does not have air conditioners or a swimming pool to reduce our carbon footprint. Our buildings are designed to take advantage of sea breezes to keep you comfortable. Our swimming pool is the South Pacific Ocean, the largest swimming pool in the world!




Much of our existence is dependant on our abundant and untouched reef life. Check our blog for our latest Reef projects.

Our Community

All our staff on Nukubati come from our surrounding local villages. We are always striving to work together to create a better future for our community. 

Nukubati has been involved in several projects bringing staff and guests together to build on our community. We understand that by sharing our community with the world that we can create a sustainable collective for our future. 


Nukubati is proud to be part of the Duavata Sustainable Tourism Collective.

Duavata is group of like minded tourism operators in Fiji who believe tourism should enhance cultural heritage and the environment. We champion the interconnection between experiences within local communities, the environment and culture.
