Want to learn how to enjoy “Fiji time”? Then the best place for training is the Nanuku Auberge Resort. Tatiana Zolotova encounters a place where happiness abounds and time seems to stand still.
Located on the beach at Pacific Harbour, the Nanuku Auberge is approximately 144 km from Fiji's Nadi Airport. That's a short two hours by chauffeured vehicle along the scenic Coral Coast of Viti Levu or an hour and a half from the capital city of Suva.
Pacific Harbour, the “Adventure Capital of Fiji”, is full of fun and adventurous activities, plus culture and history and lots of natural beauty with inland rainforests and waterfalls.
Nanuku, in the best traditions of private and luxury resorts, offers high-quality cottages with excellent service. Whether travelling alone or with friends and family, the Nanuku staff always find the best accommodation solutions – villas, suites, penthouses — they all offer a slice of Fijian paradise. Beach villas are right on the shore and have very romantic freestanding baths in the bedrooms.
For the seasoned traveller Nanuku goes beyond just another “normal luxury resort”. If privacy is important, you won't encounter another person – although that doesn't mean you're not looked after. The housekeeping system works as if by magic, each villa has an extraordinary “Villa Mama”, who intuitively knows the ideal time to change towels or refill the supply of Fiji Water.
And in the best Fijian style locals are always welcoming. Palm leaf weaving, workshops for making souvenirs from coconuts and shells, kava evenings, or relaxing Lali drum tunes are all activities in which guests can partake. There are also bonfire parties with live music, fishing with authentic equipment and diving in the magic Pacific underwater world with bright friendly fishes and awesome corals.
On or off the Resort there are special places for private moments. Only 20 minutes by water from the Resort is the famous Beqa Lagoon system of coral reefs. A quintessential deserted island with a spectacular beach, lush rainforest, swaying coconut palms and sandy trails meandering through the shaded canopy. The surrounding reef system teems with marine life and exotic corals. These two acres can be completely yours for private swimming, snorkelling, beach-combing or a very romantic Blue Lagoon-style picnic.
The spa is also a treat after a day's adventures; expert Fijian therapists offer a range of holistic therapies including aromatherapy and hot stone massages.
At the fringe of the villa is a heavenly white sandy beach, from where you can jump into crystal water and swim to a coral reef… It's absolutely perfect and there every day for every guest to enjoy at the Nanuku Auberge Resort Fiji… After a few days waking up in paradise it's difficult to leave.
