Valuation Report (as .pdf)

Valuation Report (as picture scans)

The Vava'u Harbourview Resort
The popular Harbourview Resort has a little of everything for its guests in this popular and unique self-catering resort;

10 Units with an ideal combination of accommodation options:

  • (1) Triple Room Rental Unit (520 square feet with queen and two single beds, fridge, stove, separate bath and private veranda)
  • (3) Rental Units (432 square feet each with queen & single beds, fridge, stove, separate bath and private veranda)
  • (4) Rental Units (400 square feet each with interconnecting doors [For families to rent both units if needed], queen & single beds, fridge, stove, separate bath and private veranda)
  • (1) Single Room Rental Unit (336 square feet with queen bed, fridge, stove, separate bath and private veranda)
  • (1) Triple home unit (1810 sq. feet with Queen and 2 single bunk beds, fridge stove, 2 baths and huge sea view veranda)
  • 1.35 acres of sprawling grounds on the main Island of Vava’u Lahi
  • The white sand beach below satisfies the desire for a swim or a snorkel around this quiet side of the harbour. Safe for kids and fun in the sun and sand.
  • The boat dock serves as both a convenient pick up point for the many famous water based activities available in Vava’u, including diving, fishing, sailing, whale watch or island tours, rather than taxiing into town. Or a fishing platform, a sunbathing spot right on the water so you can slip into the warm waters to cool off a little and a perfect location for a sun downer drink or even dining on the water’s edge.
  • Covered Tongan Style Barbeque Area (336 square feet and can accommodate 16+ people) great to use for Tongan feasts and special events like weddings, birthdays and dinners.
  • Full Size Tennis Court (The ONLY resort or hotel in Vava’u with such a luxury!)
  • Solar Water Heater Systems to each unit to wash off the salt water after a hard day at play.
  • Beautiful Gardens, Treed Border and Manicured Lawns (Plenty of flowers & fruit trees to enhance the ambiance of the place)
  • The airport is about 12km away
  • downtown Neiafu is only 3km away that offers easy access to shopping and more than a dozen cafe’s, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. An interesting walk past several villages into town, or go the other direction to the amazing village of Utelei.
  • The cul de sac location offers quiet privacy, harbour views and sea breeze…

The Harbourview Resort originally had a famous onsite Restaurant and Bar (Marcella’s). A very clever redesign by the current owners took advantage of a gap in the Vava’u market, and an increasing move by tourists to self-catering to help keep costs down, but still have an enjoyable holiday. The restaurant was transformed into a family home capable of catering for larger parties (which can still be changed back if you wish to make more money). The units had kitchenettes installed and hey presto Vavau’s only self-catering resort rises like a phoenix to capture its market share of tourists and business travellers. Whilst providing an enjoyable, more relaxed income for the owners from the huge veranda overlooking the harbour in their grand resort home!

But don’t think that means low profit…

  • This property has a 50 year, renewable Government Estate Land lease at a very low annual lease cost. Not an easy or fast process to obtain in the Pacific.
  • Tongan feasts and functions are common place under both the covered barbeque and sprawling grounds to give another income source.
  • The $30,000 investment foresight in the solar water heater system, by the owners, saves electricity costs and affords the luxury of hot showers, something not all resorts offer out here. That hot shower alone has guests choosing Harbourview.
  • Access to town water supply, with an additional 80,000 Litre rainwater catchment water tank, saves money on water bills and ensures a constant water supply in the dry season. No other resort in Vava’u has this feature.
  • Commission payments from activity providers such as diving, fishing, whaleswim, sailing, water tours, feasts, surfing and land tours
  • Active wholesaler / booking agent relationships already established!
  • Established, popular website and marketing generates good business and inquiries.
  • Great reviews in such publications as Lonely Planet as well as on on-line vacation Sites!

Other income options exist as well

  • Reselling Wi-Fi services to guests
  • Use this a base for your own water activity (fishing, sailing, diving, whaleswim, tours, boat rentals or adventure sports)
  • Land based activities such as vehicle rentals or an adventure sport
  • Convert the Main House back into a dining restaurant and bar for guests, tourists and the annual 500+ yachts that visit Vava’u each year. It’s massive 1,810 square feet is currently the owners grand home and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 offices, living room, large commercial kitchen, laundry room, large storage room and a massive sea view deck with a bar, all under cover!

The Harbourview is located on the main harbour’s most prime real estate. The resort is within walking distance to town and all the restaurants, yet it is removed enough from town to enjoy being in a peaceful setting. Harbourview has all the licenses and is fully operational. The primary asset is their coveted Government Estate Land Lease; a 50 year Land Lease, which is endlessly renewable and akin to “freehold.” At the current prices of land lots on this harbour, the price of the entire complex is dwarfed by the land value alone… and because they are not making any more of it (land) since the original big bang, it is likely to only go up in value.

The location is convenient and the ambiance with views of the harbour and its sailboats and beach below; one can be quite pleased with the setting, and if the food matches the ambiance, well, that is the magic combination. 10 units and a large main home is priced to sell. The Harbourview Resort is a great deal in an island paradise now, make it yours…

The current owners bought the cafe from the original developers in 2007 and have concentrated on providing an all year round one-stop shop that is profitable. Lately focussing on reducing expenses using solar and a water header tank before expanding the floor area into an adjacent building by popular demand.


Long term Accommodation can be interesting to find in Vava’u but the owners have several options for you to look at.

You can quite literally raise the roof on the cafe itself and build a home on a second level – use the kitchen, toilet and internet from downstairs and just put a shower, 2 bedrooms and living area upstairs… 5 seconds to work and fantastic sea views from the deck…

Or, simply take over the lease on either, or both of their homes

– a massive 4 bedroom house with a self-contained 1 bedroom unit below. The house is 1.5km from the cafe and has amazing harbour views as well as huge garden and storage areas. Live in one house and rent the other out… or

– a 2 bedroom cottage 2.5km from the cafe with even more amazing harbour views!


Cafe Tropicana has a land lease running through till 2021 with the previous developers that is available to transfer as well. The lease then changes ownership to a major Tongan Corporation that wants the cafe to stay as we attract customers to their other shops in the same block.

The next door neighbour, Adventure Backpackers, recently renewed their lease with the same landlord without issue and we have just (April 2012) extended our Internet, booking service and new Laundry into a room left vacant by the Duty Free store moving next door with the same landlord.


Cafe Tropicana Ltd is a Tongan corporation and all business licenses are held by the company. This ensures an easy and expedient transfer of ownership.


The new owner(s) will literally OWN the cafe building!

The building is half owned by the current owners and one of the original developers of the land. 50% or 100% of the building is available to buy, as the original developers now wish to sell as they are retiring to NZ shortly.


Unlike other businesses, Cafe Tropicana has a consistently high daily cash income and a very short off season, which is also a rarity here in Tonga! February has traditionally been our quietest month – time for a break back home, diving, sailing, make changes to the business or just relax.


All stock will be sold to the new owner(s) at real value so the business is ready to run and make money from day one. The estimated value of the stock is between $5-7,000 US Dollars at any given time


The owners of Cafe Tropicana offer a handover of the business to the new owner(s), with a two week training period if desired by the new owner(s).


The current owners arrived as a couple, they are not anymore.


Ready income, beneficial location, expansion opportunities available from this unique business location, great lease and ownership options. If you are interested in food service, then this business could be a dream come true.

However, if you are looking for a lifestyle business in the islands then this business may also be perfect for you!

Cafe Tropicana is that rare business that does not require a million hours of work just to make a decent income. You don’t even need to be from the food industry in order to succeed, you simply need to be creative and dedicated to customer service.

Owning cafe Tropicana gives you the opportunities to not only own a profitable cafe in Tonga, but to live a lifestyle of in a South Pacific paradise!

The current owners have built up a loyal and regular clientele over since 2012 by refining and adapting their offer to the local market, tourists, ex pats and their needs. Cafe Tropicana has had much hard work invested into the first growth years and is ready to expand and develop – perfect timing for the new owner to reap the rewards.

The present owners have a clear and defined sales and marketing strategy in place which will serve to enhance and grow the steady revenue stream this iconic cafe already enjoys. Turnover is without doubt buoyant and upwardly mobile.
