    Learn to Waterski

    by Usctwin Written Oct 28, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Because the water in front of Namale is so flat, it is a great place to learn to WaterSki! Additionally, it is also beautiful as the area is surrounded by lush tropical rainforest and you get to look back at the resort when out on the ocean. Sam, who is the dive master, is also the water ski teacher and he was very thoughtful and thorough when giving instructions. This charge for learning to water ski is free as part of your stay at the resort.

    Spa Service at the Namale Spa

    by Usctwin Written Oct 28, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Namale Spa is consistently rated one of the highest in all of Fiji year over year. And for good reason. Not only does it have amazing views from every room, but the service and the staff are top notch. I had two massages during our stay and both were amazing. They also have what is called a hydro-therapy room (clothing must be warn) where you can relax in warm small tubs filled with oils and aromatherapy.

    After your service if you would like to shower, they have the most amazing shampoo, conditioner and soap. Various scents of coconut based beauty products for you to use and take home are available.

    Rainforest trek to Namale waterfal

    by Usctwin Written Oct 28, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the Namale property is a secluded area with a waterfall and swimming hole. By making arrangements with the concierge you and your partner can have lunch served at the amazing spot. A hotel driver picks you up and drops you off at the beginning of a short hike through the tropical rainforest, about 15 minutes. Upon arrival, you have time to play in the swimming hole before lunch is served. A hotel staff brings out a delicious meal of your choosing (you select from the menu when you book the excursion). Our lunch included fresh chicken sandwiches and fruit, salad and a dessert. After the food is dropped off, the staff leaves so that you have your privacy and can enjoy this paradise spot on your own for an hour and half.

    Once your time is up, a car picks you up at the spot so that you do not have to walk all the way back down.

    Salt River Float

    by Usctwin Written Oct 28, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a must do at Namale and is the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon in tropical rainforest. Just a short ride from the resort is a natural salt river which flows through the lush landscape to a large lake where you and the other guests relax.

    Once at the starting point, you jump from a bridge about 10 feet above and into the water. You have on a life jacket and there are guides below to make sure you're OK, but it's safe and deep so no need to worry. While floating, guides are in a small boat following you down stream passing out beverages.

    The float ends in a beautiful serene lake where you gather with the other guests, sip on cocktails, or beer or other beverages before getting on board the boat and heading back.

    It's really a must do!

    Diving with Dive Namale

    by Usctwin Written Oct 28, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did a few diving day trips with Dive Namale and they were top notch, first class. Since we were staying at the hotel, it was really easy to book our trips. We just walked over to the dive center, told them the day we wanted to go and we were set. The charge was added to our bill.

    They have some amazing spots that you can get to within 5-15 minutes and they also have spots that they go to that are day trips. We chose to hit the spots that were closer to the hotel so that we could spend the afternoon relaxing at the resort.

    The diving and snorkeling is the best I have seen to date. The water is nice and warm and super clear. And the reef and caves are amazing! Our dive master, Sam, was the nicest. If you go with them, definitely ask for Sam!

    La Dolce Vita Dolphin Encounter

    by Usctwin Written Oct 22, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like dolphins, then this is a must! We booked the "Dolphin Encounter" with our hotel concierge. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to a very secluded beach about an hour away. We boarded a small boat (approx 10 people) which took us out to a site in the ocean where the dolphins are known to be. After a few dolphin calls, we were surrounded by dozens of dolphins playing along side of us. We were allowed to get off the boat and snorkel in this area as well which had some of the most beautiful reef and coral that I have seen.

    After the excursion, we stopped at La Dolce Vita Resort (which is really like someone's house with a lot of guest properties on it) and they cooked up a fabulous meal of fresh wood-fired pizza, salads and local beer. The property is quite large, so we also enjoyed a nice stroll around it. Definitely worth it!

    Naturubu House - the Courthouse

    by globetrott Updated Feb 22, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the local Court House of Savusavu! It is quite a modern building at the end of the village and even when the building is not so very interesting, it is a good place to see the
    coat of arms of the islands (see it in my 3rd picture)! The local flag will be fixed on the mast of your cruiseship as long as the ship is in port !

    Hot springs, steaming grass & beaches

    by globetrott Updated Feb 22, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Watch out, where you step, because a lot of the wonderfull grass that you can see in my main picture here is muddy and at some places there and on the closeby beaches you can see the steam coming out of the ground, so you need shoes to walk there on the beach, otherwise you will burn your feet. Not far from there is also a hotel with hot springs.

    You will see some great, oldfashioned shops there

    by globetrott Updated Feb 22, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You will see a lot of lovely, oldfashioned shops and colorfull shop-fronts in Savusavu, they reminded me a lot of the shops that I saw in the carribean more than 30 years ago. There are modern supermarkets as well in Savusavu, but they seem to look the same all over the world.

    Dont miss the local market

    by globetrott Updated Feb 22, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The local fruit-market is a must for all tourists and in the almost always extremely high temperatures in Savusavu it is also a place to cool down a bit and relax, while taking a look at tropical fruits. Dont miss to watch out for inscriptions with a quite unique spelling - see some of them in my "local customs" - tips !
    The merchants were very friedly, although most of them did not speak any english, so they just smiled at us and did not care a lot about the fact that we were just looking and taking photos without buying anything !

  • Tui Tai

    by sgtkerrye Written Jul 28, 2008

    My boss recently took his family on a trip to Fiji, with Tui Tai Adventure Cruises. He raves about it. He’s been on safaris in Africa, tours in the Galapagos, India, the Amazon, many exotic places, and he says Tui Tai is the absolute best he’s experienced. Their web site does look like it’s an amazing experience: www.tuitai.com.

    The web site shows they do a lot of good humanitarian things (humanitarian expeditions, donating wheelchairs, supplies, water tanks, emergency assistance to remote island villages). Cool example of how you can go on a great luxury-adventure vacation and at the same time really make a difference to a developing country like Fiji.

    Safe travels & enjoy your adventure!

    They are located in downtown, at about 5 minutes walking from teh market. There is a hotel in front, up the hill, with more hot springs, but since I was not a customer I did not go.
