A: Lot owners and guests may enjoy the facilities of Dere Bay Resort and Koro Beach Resort which offer restaurants. Most owners currently order supplies through the Tulani Management office or take the ferry to Suva which goes twice weekly for supplies. There are a few stores in the villages that supply basics such as bread, beer and gasoline. Owners usually stay at Tulani Estates during their visits and while their homes are being built.
Q: What if I get sick? Is there a hospital on Koro?
A: Koro has a small medical facility. For anything outside of basic medical coverage, residents use the facilities in Suva City on the main island. Koro has an airport for emergencies. Seaplane services can be chartered and can pick you up right at the resort pier.
Q: How do we build a house? Building materials? Labor? Are there any restrictions on building?
A: You may build your own home at any time. Any assistance will be provided with building plans, approval through local authority and arranging of building contractors. We ask that you only cut down trees that are directly on your home site to maintain the beauty of the environment and avoid erosion. Kit homes and materials are usually shipped by ferry, and local building companies from Suva can provide you with plans, materials and labor. Homes range in price from $20,000.00 for a 2-bedroom house to $150,000.00 or more for large custom-designed homes. There are homes with up to 5,000+ sq. ft. in the subdivision. We have an architect on site that will provide you with a quote if you are interested.
