Lawaki Beach House opened in 2001 with its main building. In 2003 we got our license. Since then we were able to extend step by step and welcome more and more guests.

History of Lawaki Beach House

 

How it all started

In October 1999 we started to clean, clear and prepare a piece of land on Beqa Island, called Lawaki. It’s part of Sam’s homeland and we could lease it from his clan.

Lawaki Beach House Ltd. was officially opened for business in April 2003. We also bought the Lawaki Delight, our covered aluminium boat.

In the 2006 Edition of Lonely Planet, we received a write up as “Authors Choice”. In March 2007, we got Internet reception in Lawaki. By the end of the year, we could realize a dream by adding a solar system and using the generator as back up only.

The two cyclones in 2008 have damaged our seawall badly and a few of Sam’s farm patches. During that season we have received the “Fiji Excellence in Tourism Award as Budget Accommodation on Islands”.

The 2009 December Hurricane had a severe impact on the close by villages Naceva and Naiseuseu. Many of the homes, including the school have been blown away.

2012 - we are present in Facebook and our website was re-launched. In 2013, our existing Bures underwent a renovation, and in 2015 Bure #3 and #4 were constructed. 2017 we bought our new boat Lawaki Delight II.
