The first expatriate families to settle in the Vuda were the Kumars, Mishras, Waddinghams, McElraths, and Goundars. They currently reside in the area except the Mishras, along with other old families in the area, such as the Vakubuas, and the Babas.
In the 1970s an Italian husband and his Japanese wife settled at a southeastern ridge of Vuda Point. Their two sons became established engineers with international offices. In 2009 Sapphire Bay Fiji Ltd was established to develop the Sapphire Bay Fiji resort, and construction began in 2013 on several rental villas.
