Just came back from two weeks in fascinating Fiji, having spent ten nights at Daku Resort. Fiji itself is phenomenal--the Fijian people are SO gracious, warm, and friendly; the weather in June was PERFECT--not too hot, not too much rain; the sea is SPECTACULAR--clear turquoise with the most abundant coral, fish, and other colorful sea creatures of various shapes, sizes, and designs! And nothing dangerous!
At Daku Resort, we had ALL of the above, plus a lovely bungalow of our own (a bure') with a view of the sea from our back deck, both a fan and AC; it was cleaned fastidiously every day, which included refreshing the beautiful flower arrangement!. Wonderful shower--powerful, hot, and big enough for two! Daku provided exceptional meals--three a day--that were both healthy and gourmet, as well as an open bar. At dinner we sat with Delia and JJ, the charming proprietors, as well as the other Daku guests who were interesting and intelligent. Daku Resort's location is within walking distance to snorkeling (at the foot of the driveway) and village shops.
Delia and JJ arranged memorable activities for us including snorkeling, hiking, yoga, and visits to other parts of Vanua Levu. My favorite was a visit to a Fijian village, where we were welcomed with coconut water, fresh fruit, flower leis (Fijian style), and a sacred kava ceremony. Then the villagers sang and danced for us! It was spectacular!
Our whole Daku experience was unforgettable! I felt I was in a dream!! I was sorry to leave and I'd go back in a heartbeat!
