A Rare, Freehold Opportunity in Fiji

Most real estate in Fiji is leasehold or held by the crown. Only 9% is classified as freehold property that you can own outright, and just a fraction of that is beachfront. All of Nanuku’s properties fall into this exclusive category, so it’s no surprise they have captured buyers’ interest from Australia to America.


Our gated, master-planned, beachfront community offers villas and homes in fresh, tropical modern designs. Bright interiors with warm, indigenous accents connect seamlessly with cozy outdoor spaces including private courtyards with plunge pools. All with plenty of room for family and friends.

Every home at Nanuku is either beachfront or has direct beach access.

Homesites and villas are available (from USD $150K plus VAT and USD $850K plus VAT respectively).

Nanuku Real Estate FAQs

Fiji’s international airport is situated in Nadi on the island of Viti Levu. Nanuku is also located on Viti Levu. Fiji Airways offers nonstop flights from the US, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong — just some of the more than 100 international flights at Nadi International each week.

All visitors to Fiji must have a current passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of entry, return or ongoing air tickets, and adequate funds for their support. Nationals from visa-exempt countries are granted a visitor permit valid for up to four months and extensions may be granted for an additional two months.

There are two fundamental types of interests in land which can be owned in Fiji. A freehold interest in land denotes true ownership of the land — it can be bought and sold freely and owned forever. All land and villas at Nanuku are freehold ownership. A leasehold interest in land grants the right to exclusively occupy land for a period of time. This is monitored by the iTaukei Land Trust Board. In Fiji, freehold or leasehold is via a Torrens title landregistration system with the title guaranteed by the State.

Fiji freehold land (about 9% of the existing landmass) is available for outright purchase through reputable sellers. This land can be bought and sold by overseas buyers as individuals or can be put into trusts or companies. Free and clear titles are available for all properties at Nanuku.

There are few restrictions when it comes to purchasing real estate in Fiji. You do not need to be a citizen of Fiji to purchase real estate in Fiji. Any non-resident can purchase real estate. Ministerial Consent would apply in this instance and you also need to register with Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) for tax purposes.

Ownership of real estate properties in Fiji can be by an individual or more than one person. Businesses and partnerships can acquire, hold, and convey real estate properties in Fiji. Trusts and joint ventures can also purchase real estate properties in Fiji.

Once you decide to purchase real estate, you will sign a ‘Sale and Purchase Agreement’ and make a 10% deposit into a Trust Account. Upon settlement, funds will be released and you will receive a Certificate of Title in your name.

Any legal contract for purchasing properties in Fiji must be in writing and valid. The common law of contracts, also similar to the UK and the United States, is to prepare a contract every time one sells or purchases a property. A Sale and Purchase Agreement by the seller is checked and approved by a certified lawyer prior to signing.
