On Navini, one of the smallest island resorts off the Nadi end of Viti Levu Island, guests experience a casual and thoroughly relaxed destination with the feeling of a private resort. Resort staff meet you at the international airport or mainland hotels when it suits you; within an hour you can be swimming off the beach, or lounging under a thatched umbrella with a refreshing drink. The “no day trippers” policy ensures there are never any crowds on Navini... You can and will stroll around the island in 10 minutes, surveying your domain from the circle of the beach on this true coral cay rising a few metres from lapping tides. In from the beach are coconut palms and shady big-leafed trees, and a profusion of tropical flowers picked daily to decorate your Fijian bure and dining table. Navini caters for only 10 bures. Navini Island's best-loved feature, along with its golden beaches surrounded by crystal clear waters, is its Fijian people. The greatest pleasure of Navini's 32 island staff (who outnumber guests), is your enjoyment of the happiest, most relaxed holiday possible. Nothing is too much trouble for these friendly, smiling people; their enthusiasm and laughter are infectious, their generous and hospitable natures equalled very seldom around the world. Navini offers a taste of true Fijian culture and hospitality. Visitors agree that at this unique place, you arrive as a guest and leave as a lifetime friend.

HOTEL FACILITIES & SERVICES: At Navini, your time is your own. A major decision is whether to take the daily trip to the traditional village where some of the staff live, trolling or dropline fishing over one of the reefs, snorkeling or scuba diving around bombies and over bright coral walls, visiting other island resorts or joining a shopping trip to Nadi town. From the island, whenever the mood strikes, you can take out the hobie-cat sailboat, borrow snorkeling gear to watch the colourful fish, try the sailboard, spyboard and canoes, or the new seacycles. The afternoon volleyball game is an option. So is lying under a thatched umbrella reading a book from the resort library or for a really relaxing experience, try a Fijian style massage.

Navini's open air dining room takes advantage of the surroundings; tropical gardens, blue waters, sunset-tinted clouds. Lively conversation is punctuated by waves lapping a few metres away on the sand. Navini offers a tantalising selection of innovative, traditional and Fijian dishes, with choices at all meals. Dinner includes appetizer, soup, a variety of main courses including vegetarian, and desserts. Fresh seafood and tropical fruits are always there, but never the only alternative. Everything the Navini kitchen serves is prepared there, from fresh baked breads to home made ice creams. The dining room is fully licensed, with a wide selection of cocktails, good Fijian beer and a broad selection of wines. Private candlelight - and starlight - dinners can be set up at a flower-laden table for two, on the beach in front of your bure.

Low key is probably the phrase. The soft harmonies of the staff singers and guitars in the evening, with coconut shells of the traditional drink, kava, while the vidi vidi (say 'vindy vindy') board gets a workout, laughter and conversation are the staples.
About once a week, Navini has a Fijian night with a big 'lovo' dinner taken steaming from the underground oven. The night's kava ceremony gives way to Fijian singing by the staff, and then to a session of laughter and all-join-in dancing of what is known traditionally as a 'tara-la-la'. Some evenings everybody gathers around a beach bonfire shooting sparks at the millions of stars in unpolluted skies and roasting coconuts on the fire.
