The ultimate in exclusivity, Wakaya Island is the famous home of The Wakaya Club & Spa, where Bill Gates honeymooned and Keith Richard fell out of a coconut tree. It has long been a place to escape for the rich and the famous and can accommodate at most 14 couples at a time.
The island houses only the resort and less than a dozen residences accessible by a Cessna Grand Caravan to the island's private airstrip. A 40 minute flight from Nadi(Intl Airport code: NAN) with direct flights from LAX, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, makes it easily accessible. You will feel like you are a world away.
Sere ni Wai faces westward perched 500 feet above the sea on approximately five acres of gently touched green jungle. Completed in 2000, it is a fully fenced compound overlooking the ocean comprised of 3 main buildings connected by decks and surrounding the swimming pool with incredible panoramic views. The interior square footage is approximately 3,500 with an additional 5,000 square feet in Fijian hardwood decks (half of this under roof).
The largest building is a Great Room with fully equipped granite kitchen, living and dining areas that completely open up to the tropical climate to make the best of indoor/outdoor living. There are Hunter fans throughout, Viking® range/oven, Subzero® refrigerators, microwave, dishwasher and the room is furnished with some timeless McGuire pieces. There is also a full bathroom and laundry room steps below with a washer and dryer. There are two separate air conditioned bedroom pavilions each with en suite bathrooms, the master with an outdoor shower and each private from the other.
There is also a BBQ Bure (Fijian thatched structure) a ceremonial Kava Bure, an outdoor shower for the pool and a porte-cochère.
The hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and decking are all made of Fijian hardwood and there are pressure treated pine post railings surrounding the deck areas. The property has water provided by the island's water treatment plant, private septic and drainage systems, and two generators (42 kVa and 24 kVa) housed in a generator building at the top of the property well away from the house. This building is 600 sq ft with separate generator room, inverter/battery room, work room, and storage room.
The property has a vegetable garden, fruit trees and the villa is completely landscaped with drip irrigation. There is an entry gate from the road at the top of the property and a steep driveway that winds down to the amazing house site location.
The privileged owners of a private home on Wakaya have access to services such as tradesmen, maintenance, gardening and housekeeping and through Wakaya Club Membership may choose to enjoy the dining, spa, tennis, world-class scuba diving and 9-hole golf course otherwise only available to the guests of the Wakaya Club & Spa.
This sanctuary is tucked away and paparazzi free—making it a favorite and safe destination for the royal, elite and famous. The house will be sold fully equipped with everything you need to move right in—furniture, furnishings, linens, pots/pans, tableware, glassware, appliances and equipment. A Toyota RAV with low mileage is included to easily transport you the five minutes to the resort, to the private air strip or to a private beach to enjoy all to yourself.
