The Naqalia Lodge was one of the best stays in Fiji for us. The Bure is just awesome and huge!!! The food is great - a lot of fresh fish. One night we had dinner right on the beach with a big bonfire. The staff is very friendly, they love to play guitar and sing Fijian songs for you.
Its Fijian owned - so it´s really authentic - you can feel the Fijian way of life. So if you like to learn about the traditional way of live and like to eat Fijian food, than you should definitely stay there for a couple of nights. Make sure you stay there for a Thursday - they have "Fijian night"... We had 'Kava Ceremony’ and the girls learned a Fijian dance. I'm looking forward to show that to my family when I'm back in Germany.
We did a kayak trip to Kuata which is opposite site and Whajalailai Resort which is very close - that was great. It was very calm - so we could see the beautiful corals and colorful fish right from the kayak. We went to the church on Sunday which was also a very good experience. They gave us Fijian clothes and we learned a song which we performed together in the church for the local people. The beach was the only thing which was not as great as in other resorts, but that’s natural and it's maybe not always like that.
I would definitely recommend Naqalia lodge!!! :-)
Thanks again for the lovely stay
