There are 19 spacious bures/villas spread along the beach including 2 premium bures. It has a Sante Fe design feel to it, including one of the premium bures being pink (hurts my eyes), whilst still keeping the Fijian high ceiling thatched roof. Some have pools and all are spaced widely apart ensuring privacy and your own slice of white sand beach. The farthermost bures are about 10 minutes by foot to the dining complex. Buggies are also available.

Considering Vatulele is a remote island it gets good reviews for it's food. Much of which is grown on the island and caught in nearby waters. Along with eating at it's restaurant, private dining is also possible back at your bure. Choose a wine from it's well stocked wine celler to celebrate!
For the romantics, a private picnic on their own deserted island is something straight out of the movies. Be wary though, friendly crabs won't hesitate to help themselves to your packed goodies!

A highlight on Vatulele Island is the existence of archaeological sites including rock drawings and paintings. A neat little excursion is to the limestone caves involving a cave swim.
Nearby reefs makes diving and snorkelling a treat. It's a bit far to try snorkelling straight off the beach though.
