Eco-conscious

The eco-conscious Mrs Hunter, a creative director at J Hunter Pearls Fiji, is also an avid travel photographer, when she is not so engaged in jewellery designing.

J Hunter Pearls Fiji, a Savusavu-based pearl farm, was initiated in 1999 with the dream to produce pearls in colourful hues as never seen before, a company statement said.

Chosing quality over quantity, J Hunter Pearls became Fiji’s first successful commercial pearl producer and exporter of Fiji Pearls, the statement said.

Mrs Hunter’s husband, Justin hails from Savusavu.

SunBiz asked Mrs Hunter about her COVID-19 local travel plans.

What’s One Place You’d Take Every Visitor To In Fiji, And Why?

Savusavu – beautiful natural environment, scenic bayside town, diving, and the friendliest community of people.

What’s Your Secret Backyard Favourite Spot?

Leleuvia – rustic charm that is great for the whole family.

What’s Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Pie/Coffee?

Too many to mention, but in Suva the ROC cafe, and Weta for coffee.

 

Fulaga, in the Lau group, is located South West of Suva, and is among the furthest of islands in the Lau group.

What’s One Fiji Spot On The Top Of Your Bucket List?
Fulaga.

Lucky to have traveled to some of the most stunning islands.

While I have travelled through most of the Lau group, I’ve still not made it to Fulaga.

One day, I will. One day.
