In a nutshell - Be the first see the dawning of each new day on the most remote island on earth.
“No matter who you are, you deserve to experience beauty of all kinds, from sight, sounds, to the palette, ”are the philosophical words of Dan Dimmock, owner of the Remote Resort. Immersed within an old coconut plantation on Fiji’s northern territory of Vanua Levu, intertwined with wild gardens of papaya, mango, banana, bush lemons on untouched raw rainforest jungle, the true meaning of remoteness and un-spoilt nature captures every essence of Dan’s idea of an authentic experience.
The resort has been hewn out of the bush at great labour cost over the last 4 years, and the result is a mostly vibrant green lawns, lined with palms and surrounded by the wilder bush. With just four villas, each have been designed and built with hardwood timber found on the site, offering wonderful views of the resort with floor to ceiling windows, and a veranda with a spacious daybed and a tiny saltwater plunge pool.
Where rainforests burst out of the land on one side and beautiful white beaches on the other, not to mention the Rainbow Reef where you can experience the soft coral capital of the world. The express “heaven on earth” is a true reality here at the Remote Resort.
“No matter who you are, you deserve to experience beauty of all kinds, from sight, sounds, to the palette”.
From the beginning
Having worked in the concrete jungle of New York for a large hotel group, Dan Dimmock couldn’t help but think of creating his own hotel experience, which offered personalised guest experiences. When the financial crises hit the hotel industry, Dan’s redundancy was a blessing in disguise as this gave him to the time to really put his dreams into actions. Finding a location that fitted with experiences that Dan envisioned was realised through his wife’s childhood memories in Fiji – what better canvas to create a hotel than in the unexplored territory of the Rainbow Reef. Following over three years of hard labour, where Dan even slept in a tent for almost a year, the hard work all paid off when the Remote Resort finally opened its doors in July 2013.
Something else you didn’t know
The Remote Resort is located on the Rainbow Reef beside Taveuni Island, where the 180th meridian crosses land. This means you can be the very first in the world to see the dawning of each new day, and also be the first to celebrate the New Year.
