Ovalau is a volcanic island of some 180 square kilometers and located just East and North of the current capital of the Fiji Islands, Suva. It lies in the Fijian Province of Lomaiviti, which means the center of Fiji.

This location accounts for Levuka’s early development as the trading center and the first capital of Fiji, as it’s beautiful and the well-protected harbor was almost equally distant from other island groups in the nation.


Ovalau Holiday Resort is located on the ocean side, only five kilometers from the town of Levuka. Transport to town is either by taxi or local carriers transport charges are very reasonable.

The cabin’s location is similar to Levuka, they are nestled between the craggy hills and the ocean of the Pacific. This natural deterrent to growth ensures that the resort will remain of modest and personalized size, just as the Old Capital has.
