If you think all tropical vacations are created equal, you’ve never been to Fiji. Set along dramatic volcanic beaches, on a former copra plantation, the all-inclusive but authentic Namale Resort is in Savusavu, Fiji’s best-kept secret. Traditional thatch-roofed villas offer direct beach access to the lapping waves of the Koro Sea. Spend your days snorkeling the reef or picnicking on a private beach at this brilliant South Pacific escape.
Bed and Bath
The traditional thatch-roofed villas are modeled on Fijian chiefly dwellings and retain an authentic feel but maximize comfort with spacious showers, spa baths for two and private decks surrounded by jungle. Bures are built overlooking a beach that stretches for several miles along the Koro Sea, with volcanic outcroppings punctuating the landscape and a backdrop of swaying coconut palms. At high tide, plumes of water erupt from Namale’s famous blowhole, right in front of the resort.
The premise here is that you can be as active or inactive as you wish. A technicolor underwater world gives snorkelers a sensory-overload just a few steps off the beach. And hiking through the resort’s 525 tropical acres, set on a private peninsula rich with bird life and lush vegetation, is an experience in itself. But you can also opt to relax poolside or indulge in a spa treatment overlooking the dramatic cliffs in the wellness area, one of Fiji’s best spas. During your stay you’ll receive a daily activity list, detailing excursions around the island that might include a visit to a pearl farm or the chance to drink kava (the national beverage) with a village chief. Fiji is home to some of the world’s friendliest people. Don’t be surprised if locals invite you to experience the market with them or try to bring you along to a Sunday church service.
In the Area
Walls, caves and overhangs carpeted with coral and aflutter with fish make Savusavu’s dive sites some of Fiji’s best. Snorkeling or diving is a must. The resort also arranges early morning boat trips to Natewa Bay to watch scores of resident spinner dolphins feeding and generally being their usual acrobatic selves. To see wildlife on dry land, head to the Waisale Rain Forest Reserve, a prime destination for birding, with well-maintained trails that cut through the lush landscape.
How to Get There
The Namale resort is beautiful and very intimate. The staff have the biggest hearts. They learned our names upon arrival and always remembered our favorite drinks. The rooms very spacious and very clean. The spa is out of this world!
We never would have learned about Namale without the amazing help of Venture Fijis. We were able to enjoy our honeymoon stress free! Keith is great, we highly recommend him!
My husband and I spent a week at Namale Resort for our honeymoon. The resort is picturesque with lush greens, gardens, tropical flowers, palm trees standing tall into the sky with the back drop of the powerful ocean waves. The Namale staff are kind, always have a smile on their face, and incredibly accommodating to their guests. The food was delicious and in abundance. We booked with Venture Fiji; they provided us with excellence guidance.
I chose this hotel for our 25th anniversary celebration. It was our first time to Fiji so we were not sure what to expect.
The rooms are typical islander timber cottages, not modern or new however very comfortable. What we loved was the adults only, all inclusive drinks and dining and very very quiet. The weather was not the best when we were there however there is plenty to do (or not!)
The true highlight was the staff - absolutely so friendly and always accommodating to whatever you want. We have since stayed in accommodation near Nadi and the hotel prices for food and beverages are extraordinarily expensive so by booking this hotel there are no worried about what you have to pay for drinks and dining.
