A Touch Of In­done­sia In New Yadua Bay Re­sort And Vil­las

Fiji Sun - - Sunbiz - MON­ICA AGUILAR

Set within an ex­cep­tional 27 acre es­tate is Yadua Bay Re­sort and Vil­las, a mod­ern and unique prop­erty that has be­gun tak­ing shape.

Lo­cated in Malaqereqere, near Siga­toka, the unique prop­erty will give lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional in­vestors an op­por­tu­nity to own a piece of par­adise that they can call their own.

The con­struc­tion work had be­gun last year. The Hexagon Group of Ho­tels has now con­tracted with an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised con­struc­tion firm from In­done­sia to build its vil­las at the re­sort. Audie Pa­cific En­gi­neer­ing, a sub­sidiary com­pany of PT. Audie Build­ing In­dus­tries, will start off by build­ing eight out of the 80 vil­las at the re­sort.

This will be done within eight months.

Hexagon Group of Ho­tels chair­man Hafiz Khan said, the con­struc­tion of the ho­tel will fin­ish by next Jan­uary while the en­tire re­sort is ex­pected to open by April next year.

There are 20 rooms that will be pro­vided at the ho­tel.

“The con­cepts that Audie has de­signed and de­vel­oped are very unique.

“PT. Audie Build­ing In­dus­try is a fairly well es­tab­lished com­pany and they have done de­vel­op­ments around the world,” said Mr Khan. The firm has de­vel­oped spe­cific pack­age de­signs for sin­gle two bed­room vil­las and du­plex two bed­room vil­las.

He added that some of the vil­las are presold and be­cause of the high de­mand for the piece of par­adise, buy­ers have also pur­chased lots at the re­sort which will be de­signed by Audie Pa­cific.

The struc­ture of the prop­erty can either be a sin­gle or dou­ble storey build­ing.

Aside from con­struct­ing the vil­las, Audie Pa­cific will also work on the re­sort’s sewage plant and swim­ming pool.

“We are also in the process of devel­op­ing a very large swim­ming pool.

“[It will be] the largest in the Coral Coast, which will start in De­cem­ber,” said Mr Khan.

The in­fin­ity pool will also in­clude a wa­ter slide and kids area. “The mar­ket value of the prop­erty is close to $6 mil­lion.

“There are 80 in­di­vid­ual lots of which some have been bought by in­di­vid­ual buy­ers,” said Mr Khan. A two bed­room villa with a lounge which is built on a 600sqm lot will be sold for $675 000 and the owner of the villa will have two sets of keys for each two bed­room which can be rented out.

Mr Hafiz said this is a good busi­ness model es­pe­cially for those who are seek­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion dur­ing the hol­i­days or for busi­ness trips. Some of the vil­las are de­signed to also have their own swim­ming pools.

So far, 25 vil­las had been sold and the Group plans to build around eight town houses that will over­look the sea.

PT. Audie Build­ing In­dus­try man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ozie Moech­lis said, “The sign­ing be­tween Hexagon Group and Audie Pa­cific En­gi­neer­ing … is an­other im­por­tant step of Audie Pa­cific’s en­deav­ors in Fiji’s con­struc­tion in­dus­try since it was es­tab­lished and reg­is­tered as a Fiji based com­pany in 2017.” Mr Moech­lis ex­plained that the com­pany will use their own im­ported prod­ucts and ma­te­ri­als for con­struct­ing the vil­las as it gives them more con­trol over the qual­ity and quan­tity of ma­te­ri­als needed. The AUDIEPanels, that will be used by the com­pany, are not only known for their light­weight, dura­bil­ity and high qual­ity but also the way they have changed the con­ven­tional way of how walls are con­structed in the build­ing in­dus­try. Ac­cord­ing to Mr Moech­lis, the pan­els are sound­proof, wa­ter­proof and fire­proof.

It has been rigidly tested to be cy­clone five re­sis­tant and weighs 1.2 tons.

He added that their meth­ods has also been cer­ti­fied by a lo­cal en­gi­neer.

Through Audie Pa­cific’s con­cept, build­ings will be built 60 per cent faster than the con­ven­tional con­struc­tion method.

Mr Moech­lis said a two bed­room house that is usu­ally built within six months can be built in one month, us­ing their meth­ods.

All fur­ni­ture and build­ing ma­te­ri­als will be man­u­fac­tured in In­done­sia.

The re­sort will em­ploy around 40 peo­ple once it opens for op­er­a­tions.
