Private Island Picnics

Beachside massages and morning Yoga

The highlight of any trip is a picnic on Naviavia Island. Take a specially prepared picnic and spend the day on the powdery white sand and beautifully soothing ocean.  Take a stand up paddle board or kayak with you and float in the calm waters or snorkel across the surrounding reefs.

On your return why not experience a South Pacific massage treatment in the privacy of one of the resorts’ beach side treatment bures.  Relax to the gentle rippling ocean as you indulge in a soothing and restorative spa treatment.    Or maybe try some Fiji Yoga  – every morning join the small class session as the sun rises, or perhaps arrange a private session with one of the resort’s yoga instructors.

Chef Raymond creates meals that are sourced locally and seasonally with many of the herbs, edible flowers, fruits and vegetables coming  directly from his own organic garden.   Other ingredients are sourced, wherever possible from across Fiji.
