Garden Weddings In Fiji – Malawai Plantation

‘Ultra picturesque’ are the two words used to describe this magnificent new venue which we think surely must be the perfect garden wedding setting amongst the tropical forest, lush landscape and rolling hills of Nadi, Fiji.

Fiji Wedding Venues are plentiful but if you are looking for a special space that showcases the best of a tropical island yet but with complete privacy and endless options to cater for your event, then we have found it for you in this beautiful garden setting.

Malawai plantation is a lush tropical garden acreage hidden in the hills of Votualevu in Nadi. Its hard to believe this piece of paradise is literally a 10 minute drive from the main roads. Malawai plantation is Nadi’s newest exclusive venue and is available for weddings and private events. Unlike other Fiji venues, this is an exclusive venue for hire and a tropical canvas to create the event of your dreams with few limitations to what you can do.

Set within 14 acres, this property has been family owned and run for over 30 years. You’ll be mesmerised by the lush tropical gardens, abundance of flowers and fruiting trees, with an array of endless possibilities of unique settings for any style of event, even featuring Fijian Historical Caves. The environment is sponsored by organic practices to encourage healthy bird life and bees.

We take a look at what makes this property so special and the top choice for a garden wedding.


Cherrill’s Valley

Grand views are in abundance at Cherrill’s Valley which showcases the beautiful lawn area and fruiting trees year all round. A large flat area of 364 Square Metres, larger events are nestled with in the lush surrounding rainforest
which looks equally gorgeous after sunset. With perfectly displayed fairy lights by DJ Works Fiji the area turns into a mystical fairytale style venue, taking you from beautiful by day to simply stunning at night.

Bespoke Styling highlights the natural beauty and is facilitated by exclusive caterers and event planners – Taste Fiji.

Fijian Historical Caves

Built by the New Zealand Airforce in World War II, the caves are a cool option for a chill zone or photo booth.  Where else in the world can you have your own cave for a Cocktail Lounge. Amazing!
The other 4 caves nearby are protected as a natural habitat for the plantations residing swift population.

Citrus Orchard Grove

Tahitian limes, “Moli Karo” bush lemon, local orange and Kumquat trees create an organic frame and entrance to Cherrill’s Valley. This natural space provides a private tree lined entrance and can be used as in-conjunction with Cherrill’s valley or as a intimate private dining space.
