How to Get There
Unforgettable -- the only word that describes every aspect of the experience my family and I had at Nanuku Auberge thanks to the stunningly beautiful setting of this world class resort and, perhaps even more importantly, its staff who made this trip unlike any other. Every person we encountered during our 10 day stay not only treated us like family -- but took every opportunity to anticipate our needs and provide for them beautifully and with such kindness and grace. From Nathan in the restaurant, who quietly surprised me every morning by setting out a steaming pot of coffee by the pool as I swam my laps at 6 a.m., to the amazing gentleman, Isaac, who took it upon himself to become the weather expert to ensure that the private dinner on the beach he was organizing took place on the most perfect evening -- every person we met went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed and special. Our daughter, who generally doesn't like to be away from us, couldn't get enough of the nannies at adventure club -- Mary, Solate and Bati --and their wonderful beach, art and game adventures. And then there was our two amazing buddies -- Benji and Solo who sought us out at the start of every day to make sure they could organize whatever activities and excursions our family felt like doing. Solo, in particular, was a complete standout, taking us on amazing hikes through rainforest (using his personal machete to cut a path!), showing up at our doorstep with fresh coconuts when we mentioned we were thirsty to cut them by hand, teaching our son to sail the resort's hobiecat and sailing us to Nanuku island where we snorkeled and kayaked and ate a delicious picnic lunch. Both he and Benji were wonderful guides and storytellers--generously sharing with us their insights into Fijian culture and way of life and exposing us to places and experiences that we definitely would not have been able to see on our own. To say our experience with Nanuku and its people was special would be an understatement. It was the best vacation of our lives and we can't wait to go backing 2019!
We were very impressed by the Nanuku Auberge Resort; very helpful and friendly staff, excellent accommodation and the food was good both in terms of quality, service and choice.
The ratio of staff to guests was very impressive too (I believe 3:1) and everyone went out of their way to ensure that the holiday could be as enjoyable as possible.
There were a range of amenities to chose from as well as various day trips ranging from white water rafting and visiting local villages to diving and cooking
This resort is a piece of paradise! And I don’t just mean the location and accomodation.. the staff and management treat you like family, the buddies and nannies are so nurturing and build a true bond with your children. My boys have found a true friend in their buddy (Bati) who went above and beyond to make their holiday truly memorable. Oh and the food is off the charts, farm to plate concept and exquisite!
Overall, I enjoyed my stay, however 11 nights was way too long. If it wasn't for the extreme friendliness of the staff, my family and I would've changed hotels halfway through our stay.
PROS: The accommodations are very nice. We had a large villa with a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a separate guest house with a large pool and jacuzzi. The staff is very friendly, in particular, Dee (a waitress). Ask for her to serve you as she is definitely the most competent when it comes to getting your order correct, and she is amazing! The food is very good, when it comes out correctly.
CONS: The wifi was out for a couple days throughout our stay which made communication difficult, however they loaned me a hotspot to use for the time being. The food is pretty limited, breakfast definitely gets boring after a couple days, lunch too. Lunch stops being served at 2:30, so if you want to eat after, you need to order off the "small bites" menu. The food seemed to be inconsistent (I ordered a garden salad with grilled chicken almost every day), and it seemed to be a different size every day; they would also bring out pulled dark meat chicken on the salad when I asked for white meat grilled chicken with the wrong dressing. We also ordered a chocolate cake directly with the pastry chef and explicitly said NO COCONUT. The next night we received a plate of brownies filled with coconut, however Philip, the food and beverage manager helped to sort it out and get us the cake for the next day. We also needed to ask multiple waiters where our stuff was because they seemed to forget we ever ordered. When live music is playing for dinner time, they ended at 8:30 and the restaurant began cleaning up. (There is only one restaurant throughout the resort). The weather on this side of the island was also not good compared to the other side of the island. For most days it was cloudy, windy, and sometimes rainy.
Overall, I would recommend staying LESS than 12 nights or you might go crazy. The employees are extremely friendly and know you by name, however they forget orders and screw them up. Be sure to check the weather in this specific part of the island as it is very different from Nadi. Also, bring snacks with you if you want stuff to munch on later on in the day as we found it kind of difficult to get this.
Wow, what can I say? Nanuku was a beautiful getaway. The food was excellent. They have their own pastry chefs at the property. Everything is made fresh onsite and you can tell that they have been French trained. We went whitewater rafting one day of our stay. It was soooo much fun. This is a must if you are active and want to see how the mountain tribes live in their villages. It was absolutely stunning scenery. We stopped counting waterfalls somewhere around 50. We also went snorkeling right off the shore close to our villa. Blue starfishes and many verities of fish where everywhere. A quick kayak ride through the mangroves was fun as well. However, the people working at Nanuku where the friendliest people I have ever seen. I have traveled extensively throughout many continents and dozens of countries, but I have never felt more of a family feeling in my life while traveling. The staff truly are wonderful. Bula to them and Vanaka for a wonderful time.
