  • After a drive difficult (many stones, difficult of access) we finally arrived at the village we were the only tourists we were well received of course we have the pay an entry to visit the village, plus the guide, but let's not forget that this Money help the village and inhabitants according to the tradition, the guest (IE us) offer kava. We didn't, so we gave a little money all these entry fees can cool down a bit but let's not forget that we visit their village is a genuine place, quaint. Traditional houses improves through solar energy but remains the same, as is tradition. Our guide was very friendly, he explained to us how they shared, lived, built... we saw the Church and school which they are very proud and they can be, it's big and very well maintained

  • We drove in a rented car to Navala Village with our three kids, aged 11, 8 and 4. The road is ok, no need of 4x4, but nice to have a higher jeep or suv. The journey through the highlands was great. It...  more »

Where to stay in Nadi

With the majority of visitors to Fiji passing through Nadi, the town caters to every budget and traveler. For maximum convenience, stop in Martintar, which lies right on the (noisy) main bus route. If you want something quieter, more economical, or a little more scenic, consider the affordable, peaceful resorts of Newtown and Wailoaloa beaches--even if the beaches aren't exactly the best Fiji has to offer. Just west of Nadi lie the luxury resorts and private beaches of Denarau Island, where you can stay in comfort and style, as long as you don't mind splashing a bit of cash.
