Accommodation is just outside of Savusavu at the Daku Resort, a place of timeless magic. Tucked away in Savusavu on Fiji’s northern island, it’s a place to relax and enjoy the hospitality of a culture that is always smiling. It offers all the pleasures of a traditional bayside resort. The staff welcome you like family and show you a Fiji that has preserved all the best in warmth and hospitality.
There are two accommodation options.
The standard Bures are single (or double) rooms and have a bedroom with a double bed and an extra single bed, with a private bathroom and covered deck. There is a bar fridge and tea and coffee making facilities in each bure, and an overhead fan.
Three Bedroom Bayview Villa
The three bedroom Bayview Villa is set up on a hill surrounded by tropical foliage. It has just been completely rebuilt with smooth stone tile floors, air conditioning in each bedroom and large bathrooms – 2 are ensuite and the third is just on the other side of the passage.
It has a lounge, kitchen and a large verandah with a magnificent view of the bay – a wonderful vantage point from which to enjoy the breeze, or sit with a drink and gaze at the stars. And at the end of the deck it has its own private plunge pool.

About Travel to Fiji
To enter Fiji your passport must be valid for 6 months from the day of arrival. The Fijian Government allows visa-free short visits (4 months) for Australians travelling to Fiji. For more information on Visas or longer stays or for general information on travel to Fiji please visit the Smart Traveller website. There are often travel alerts for Fiji, so please check on this.
You will be flying into Nadi and then catching a connecting flight to either Savusavu Labasa.
Flying into Savusavu: There will be someone waiting for you at the airport to take you directly to Daku Resort. The easiest flight looks to be with either Qantas or Fiji Airways both leaving Melbourne at 11.40PM and arriving at Nadi the following day at 7.30AM in time for a connecting flight to Savusavu arriving at 8.40AM. It the same flight operated by Fiji Airways, and they code-share with Qantas. So it's the same plane. The advantage of booking with Fiji Airways is that you can book all the way through to Savusavu (or Labasa) and this gives you 23kg luggage allowance on both the international and the domestic legs. It also means that if there is any delay on the international flight, Fiji Airways is responsible for re-scheduling you. If you book with Qantas, you'll have to book the domestic fare separately.
Flying into Labasa: Labasa is on the north of the island. From there, you will take a taxi (courtesy of Daku Resort) to the resort about 90 minutes away. I am told that it is a beautiful drive through the mountains.
Please choose a flight that departs THE DAY BEFORE, on the 28th or 29th, to arrive on the 30th in time to start the retreat. There are other services into Nadi for you to investigate.
The currency is the Fijian Dollar and it is currently buying $0.65 AUD and you can exchange money at the airport in Australia or when you arrive in Nadi.
I strongly recommend having full travel insurance.
Your deposit is non refundable. If you cancel before April 4th, 2019 we can refund the fee less $350 deposit. If you cancel after April 4th, 2109 a refund may only available if your space can be filled from the waiting list.
