Set Your Internal Clock to Island Time at This Fiji Auberge Resort
A tropical oasis set at the southern tip of Fiji and with access to over a mile and a half of beachfront land, Nanuku Resort has won accolades like the 2016 Conde Nast Johannsen’s Luxury Hotel and Venues Award.
An experience at this Auberge Resort is not meant to be rushed, but if you need help kicking back, here are some ways Nanuku will help you switch into island mode:
There is no better way to disconnect than being surrounded by panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.
Suites include balconies with day beds and outdoor barbecue areas for entertaining.
Villas have infinity-edge plunge pools that seem to blend into the beach and ocean.
And how about taking a spa bath in your suite with a glass of bubbly and views of the tropical foliage?
You can balance leisure and physical activity with complimentary yoga classes and signature spa treatments like Fijian Bobo Massages — traditional healing massages passed down through Fijian generations that stimulate circulation and restore well-being.
Foodies rejoice! You can learn how to prepare unique cultural dishes inspired by the region after catching prawns from a waterfall or climbing a coconut tree to make coconut milk during one of the Fiji Food Safaris.
Nanuku also takes care of arranging unique adventures like tours of the hotel’s private island, water rafting, zip-lining and waterfall hikes with a medicine man — Fiji is the adventure capital of the South Pacific islands, after all.
You may also arrange a customized beach picnic at sunset that includes sparkling wine, a hamper and your own butler (also referred to as a “Nanuku Buddy”). Did we mention that families also get their own dedicated nanny?
Don’t leave the resort without taking part in some indigenous Fijian activities. Tuck a hibiscus flower behind your ear and learn some new dance moves during a Meke ceremony, which combines dancing and chanting to the beat of a traditional Fijian drum.
