Home to Help With a Hideaway
Imam, Noorun Buksh praise Government initiatives.
Helping the economy of their motherland grow was the reason Imam and Noorun Buksh returned to Fiji to set up their successful hideaway hotel in Nadi.
The hotel is called Bayview Cove Health Resort at Sonaisali.
The couple who migrated to Australia when they were teenagers now run this perfect weekend getaway that is fast growing popular with overseas guests and locals.
Tucked away in the inner most parts of Sonaisali, Bayview Cove offers you solitude, and perfect relaxation when you want to tune off from the busy schedules of the working life.
“We set up a business in Australia and lived a good life then my husband told me that he wanted to come back to Fiji,” Noorun Buksh said.
“He wanted to come and create a business, employ people, help them so they can support their families.”
The Bayview Cove Health Resort has 21 villas and they come in self contained units, complete with TV, air conditioning and hot and cold showers. “We wanted to build something that we would like to have on holiday.
“That’s a golden rule of business.
“You’ve got to offer to people what you would want for yourself,” she said.
Secluded and isolated, this facility helps their visitors unwind and get in touch with nature.
On the front of the resort is a river and guests go kayaking in peace while they can watch different types of birds perching on the trees surrounding the property.
With a pool that looks out to the river, the relaxation area around can also be transformed into a meeting place for those wanting a different setting for their planning sessions and departmental discussions.
“This place is just gorgeous in every way.
“It just kinda transports you into another world. “Your body and your mind just feels the change when you come to Bayview Cove Health Resort,” she said.
Mr Buksh was quick to acknowledge the Government for their help with the setting up of the business.
“Our business grew because of the incentives that Government had and they’ve been supportive of our small business.
“We are very grateful for their assistance,” he said.
The couple’s children and the rest of the family remain in Australia while the couple lives in Fiji.
