Welcome the Night
As the sun begins to set, the ideal place to bask in the warm glow of sunset and welcome the night is our sunset deck. Grab your favourite cocktail, or try our cocktail of the day and share your day's experiences with the new friends you've made on the island.
After night falls and dinner has been served we offer up a variety of experiences for you to enjoy. A number of our Fijian dive instructors and boat captains are skilled fire dancers and are always ready to put on a show. We also hold regular Kava ceremonies and our Fijian boys are always happy to take up a guitar and share some traditional songs with you.
The Kava drink is made by mixing the ground up root of the Yaqona (piper methysticum) bush with water. The Yaqona bush is a relative of the pepper plant, which may account for the slightly peppery taste of Kava.
Kava is a big part of Fijian life - either being consumed as part of a formal ceremony, or between small groups of villagers as an almost daily ritual after work. Kava is a mild sedative and you might experience a slight numbness in your face after a couple of cups. If you drink alot then you'll feel relaxed and sleepy.
Kava is served from a communal bowl, with those drinking all sitting in a circle around the bowl. Each person is offered a cup in turn and claps once before receiving the cup, drinks it all up and then claps three more times.
