About Governors Museum Themed Restaurant
Once the residence of Fijian High Chief and Pacific statesman, Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna, the restored colonial estate now houses Karalina’s Fiji Boutique & Gift Store and Heritage Framing and Art shop. The crowning glory is the Governors Museum Themed Restaurant. To enter Governors is to walk through the mists of time. As you cross the threshold, you cross from the post-modern, internet-connected world of the 21st century to a time when even the most mundane of activities carried with them a sense of adventure and every experience had the potential to be history in the making.
The walls are adorned with photographs and paraphernalia, each capturing the essence of the romantic South Seas. Every picture is post-card perfect, offering a snapshot of island life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Given that the most common form of transport that era was the sailing ship, it is not surprising that Governor’s carries a maritime motif. From a tribute to the old King’s Wharf in Suva, to images of sailing ships and stylised private dining and meeting rooms – Captain’s Table, Explorer’s Room, Bosun’s Quarters, and Norm’s Bula Talei Bar – Governors easily transports the visitor to the “old world” charm of the South Pacific.
