A Small Coral and Sand Cay located in the middle of a beautiful marine sanctuary that is easily accessible from the mainland, Treasure Island is a TRUELY relaxing, Locally owned 4 Star Fijian Tropical Island gateway for Honeymooners, Couples, Families & Truely Romantics.

Location

The republic of Fiji consists of more than 300 islands. Treasure Island is a 14.5 acre (5.87 Ha.) white coral and sand fringed atoll, surrounded by a protected marine reserve.

Located in a natural marine park in the Mamanuca Islands, Treasure Island is the closest island resort to Nadi International Airport, which service direct flights to International destinations including Los Angeles, Honolulu, Tokyo and Vancouver.

The Resort

The Resort is an icon to Fiji established in 1972. Unlike most other Island Resorts, Treasure covers the entire island. The Island is owned by the Tokatoka Nakelo, a family group of Vuda, and has been leased for 99 years by Treasure Island Resort which is owned by their company; Nakelo Limited & Hunts Investments Limited.

Eco-Friendly Resort

Treasure Island prides itself on being eco-friendly. The Island is mainly, because of this policy, free of mosquitoes and flies. Treasure Island was the first marine sanctuary in the Mamanuca’s– for this reason, there is an abundance of marine life and coral growth surrounding the island. There are rare (endangered) banded rails, parrots, white-eyes, honey suckers, herons, iguanas, nesting turtles on the island and geckos. The geckos live on spiders and various insects, which provide some balance to the environment that introduces our guests to the miniature eco-system on the island. Treasure Island is the only Resort in the Mamanuca’s that has a fresh water supply direct from the mainland.

The Reef

In order to preserve the integrity of the reef for future generations, we have declared it to be a total sanctuary. Therefore fishing and collection of living shells and coral are prohibited within 400 metres from the shoreline.

Environment

NATURE & WILDLIFE CORNER

Hawks Bill Sea Turtles

An endangered species, the Green Sea Turtle are bred in captivity on Treasure Island and are housed in a Turtle Pond for a period of 12 months to protect them from natural predators. Treasure Island and the local Fisheries Department have a program to protect these species, and when they are mature enough to survive in the wild, they are tagged and released. The turtles lay eggs only every three years.

In early March 2002, a very surprised guest in Bure 56 reported seeing 200 recently hatched baby turtles making their way across the front of their bure towards the beach!

Fiji Crested Iguana

This very rare iguana is only found on a few small islands in the Fiji group, indigenous only to Yaduataba Island off Vanua Levu, and is an endangered species with only 6,000 around the world. Recently introduced to Treasure Island are 8 Crested Iguana, five male and two females ‘Priscilla’ and ‘Biannca’ recently gave birth on the island. The iguana feed on the natural flora and fauna of Treasure including hibiscus, tropical fruits and have the unique ability to change colour when aroused and they are the only species of their kind. You can find the Iguana sanctuary located next to the turtle pond

Banded Rails

The endangered flightless Banded Rail was introduced to Treasure Island 10 years ago. A shy secretive bird similar in nature to the quail has become very friendly to guests staying on Treasure. You will see these birds ducking in and out of the bushes outside your bure. The Banded Rail are now in abundance and have become very cheeky. In some cases they will hop right into your bure or take a splash in your foot-bath outside!

Geckos

Commonly known as the ‘Voracious Gecko’ these small lizards are cute, friendly and totally harmless. Geckos are highly valued as they eat spiders and small insects including spiders and mosquitoes. The more the merrier! The gecko was introduced to certain islands of the South Pacific Ocean by accident, due to human immigration and commerce. The species was apparently carried unknowingly aboard the sailing crafts of early Pacific settlers. Geckos with their sticky webbed feet have an extraordinary ability to ’stick’ to any surface and you may find them climbing the walls and ceiling of your bure and nearby trees. The gecko is arboreal and secretive and if your lucky you will hear them singing during the night time.

Treasures Of The Sea

The island of Treasure is a living sanctuary and protected marine reserve, you will see an abundance of aquatic and marine life in their natural habitat. The Marine boys are putting together an underwater snorkeling trail. Keep an eye out for the new coral growths that are appearing around the island and over 20 species of reef fish including the colourful parrot-fish, angel-fish, coral trout, barracuda, sweet lips, trevally, emperor, surgeon, unicorn, starfish and blue spotted stingray. For the fishing enthusiast, a deep sea fishing expedition can be arranged and our kitchen staff is happy to freshly cook your catch to your liking that evening.
