Lawhill Wines, Fiji Coffee and Indulge store owner Neil Underhill, has travelled the world extensively, and mostly for business.

But there is no place like home, he says.

Besides, there are certain places in Fiji he plans to visit.

An accountant by profession, he relishes his solitude where he often spends time reading biographies of global leaders.

Mr Underhill is a workaholic, with tanks of reserved energy of commendable proportions that allow him to work time between his offices in Nadi and Lami.

But all work and no play makes for a very dull day, which is why he encourages timely adequate downtime.

For recreation, Mr Underhill enjoys time out at sea.

 

What Is The One Place In Fiji You Would Take Visitors To, And Why?
Without doubt – Southern Lau. Fulaga, Ogea, Oneata, etc.

They are completely unspoilt, unique, magnificently beautiful and the people are marvellous.

Plus Rotuma.

Aside from Indulge Café and Wines.

 

Where Are Your Favorite Spots For Coffee/Pie?
In Nadi, The Coffee Hub.

In Suva, it would be any of the following:-
– Suva Central,
– Holiday Inn,
– GPH,
– ROC, and
– Gloria Jean’s.
And Café Planet in Korotogo.

 

What Is Your Favourite Backyard Spot, And Why?
Bavatu Plantation on Vanuabalavu Island in northern Lau.

Complete solitude, no pollution, no politicians, beautiful views and zero stress!

 

What Is The One Local Destination On Your Bucket List?
I have never been to Vatoa and Ono-I-Lau…but one day.
