We stayed at Daku Resort for 11 nights in Bay View Villa no.2. This is a two bedroom/2 bathroom bure with kitchen and sitting room. It accomodated a family of four (children age 7&9) very comfortably. We were looking for a relaxed Fijian resort that was fun,interesting and affordable and found it at Daku! The villa was cleaned beautifully everyday and we found all the staff helpful and courteous. The food was delicious and the kitchen was able to make food to order for our children so that they could go to bed on time! We loved the fact there were three different courses happening during our stay, nia dancing, art and quilting. This meant there were lots of interesting guests to talk to at the communal dining table. We ate some of our meals at Daku and also went into the local town Savusavu to the Captain's Table and Surf & Turf. The resort and surrounding area were lush with tropical vegetation and the views across the bay were spectacular. The owners of Daku, JJ and Delia were welcoming and very helpful with ideas for activities. We did lots of snorkeling off the resort beach and further afield by boat, the best was at The Lighhouse and Split Rock, clear blue water and lots of fish. We also swam under a waterfall, scuba diving,river tubing, visited a traditional village and had wonderful massages with Daku's masseur.
The Fijian plumbing is a bit erratic, the water pressure low and not always hot, the pillows were a bit lumpy, but none of this matters when you are in a beautiful location and the children are having fun!
Thank you Daku for a wonderful holiday, we hope to return!
