We came to Daku in May 2014 for a one-week Yoga retreat and had a fabulous time. The resort is conveniently situated within walking distance of SavuSavu and a few minutes drive from the airport.
The resort is tidy and tranquil with lush gardens and 100 year+ coconut trees characteristic of Fiji. It features it's own pool, beach volleyball net, restaurant, yoga platform, massage platform, Kayaks, Snorkeling and much more. The Bures are facing into lush wide-open gardens with Ocean view and have everything they need.
The rooms were thoughtfully serviced daily. E.g. the fan was switched on, enough tablets for the insect regulating device are available, the window blinds are half down, the flower arrangements are refreshed.
Most of the staff come from nearby villages and treated our group as part of their family. The warmth and kind-heartedness with which we were included is what really makes Daku special. The moment we arrived we felt part of the place. Its wide smiles, delicious food and genuine family atmosphere made us feel relaxed and comfortable. In the evenings, everyone eats together so you get to know people and owners of the resort.
Our days were pretty relaxed. Yoga in the mornings and evenings combined with a snorkelling, swimming or reading in the afternoons. If that's too relaxed, the owners are more than happy to arrange various activities. We went on a boat outing to a private beach and did some snorkelling at a reef across the bay which had terrific sea life and colourful corrals.
In short, this place is fantastic value for money!
