Sited in an old quarry high above Suva, the lodge boasts two man-made lakes and a forest park next door. The big lake is available for swimming to house guests only. The water temperature is very pleasant and water supply is from underground springs. The smaller lake is full of fresh-water fish (Telapia) and is great for fishing. A small row boat and dugout canoes are available for use on the big lake. This Fijian ecotourism resort is a quiet, leafy haven for those who want to escape city life but still be close to everything in Suva and the rest of the Fiji Islands.

There are a lot of birds to be seen on the property and in the Forest Park next door, so bird watching is a favourite pastime, especially sitting on your veranda overlooking the lake! Bushwalking trails are close to waterfalls and forest pools for picnics, BBQ's and swimming. Private tours to Fijian villages can be arranged.

Volleyball can be played on the court opposite the recreation room and sunset competitions are a regular event. Keen sportspeople who want to play golf, tennis or lawn bowls, please bring your gear as very good facilities are available in Suva and outings from the resort can be organised.

Must see spots in Suva include the National Museum, Craft Market and the Suva Produce Market [the largest in the South Pacific].

The 'Raintree Restaurant and Bar' serves both guests and locals, either in the large chiefly bure or from the outdoor cafe on the verandah.

Prices are per person per night.
