Urata Look Out Cafe

Urata Look Out Café has an open-plan design with a seating area inside that seamlessly leads out through several bifold doors onto a large veranda for alfresco dining. The cleverly designed building and choice of location, looking over the Sekawa Valley and Savusavu Bay, provide a wonderful air flow across the restaurant. with solar panels erected upon the roof of the building, making the building self-sufficient and completely off-grid.

On the exterior of the building, there is a caretaker building and two public toilets available for restaurant patronage.

Details: Urata Look Out Cafe

The two main towns on the island of Vanua Levu, Savusavu and Labasa, are linked by a 90-kilometre road that crisscrosses the internal mountain range that separates them (home to the second highest mountain in Fiji, Mt. Sorolevu, standing 1.019 metres above sea level). It is an incredibly scenic drive that many people decide to navigate first upon arriving, so they can instantly see the raw beauty of the island. The route provides several stunning and memorable Instagrammable views along the way.

The most iconic of which is the view that crests the hills after the Sekawa Valley and renders a spectacular first sighting of Savusavu Bay. This is where the local community, the local Rotary Club, governmental institutions, and architects from CAUKIN Studio came together to formulate a plan to build the café.

The building is fully owned by the Urata Village Community, providing a sustainable income and guaranteed jobs for village members.
