Accommodatie

You will be accommodated at Daku Resort in traditional bures with private facilities. Daku Resort is a small, comfortable resort with a unique connection to the Fijian life. The staff at Daku will take care of you as if you were a family that makes Daku Resort's guests always leave feeling nurtured and cared for. All of the bures look out over the gardens and onto Savusavu Bay. Daku Resort has five single ocean view bures and three family ocean view bures.

Single ocean-view bures

Each single ocean-view bure has a bedroom with a double bed and an extra single bed with a private bathroom and covered deck which can sleep two or three people. There are bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities in each bure, and an overhead fan. All but one bure has an air conditioning.

Family ocean-view bures

The family ocean-view bures have two separate rooms with a lockable door in between, so they are ideal for a family or for two couples who are friends but still want some privacy. But they can also just be used as individual rooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, deck, and the other facilities of the single bures. Two of them are set up on the hillside overlooking the pool and out to the bay and one is in the gardens of the resort. The family ocean view bures can sleep up to four people with two persons in each of the two bedrooms.

Yoga in Fiji Savusavu Yoga Retreat Program

During this retreat, Liz Bennett will be working with you on a daily basis to explore your capabilities, as well as to develop your confidence and understanding of your spine. She will modify the practice for people with injuries and develop a take-home practice that you can do on your own (she’ll even help you write it down so you won’t forget the minute you leave the yoga shala). You will have twice daily yoga practices of one-half hours and no practice on Thursday afternoon. The program will be structured around a morning practice with afternoons for activities and free time to enjoy a massage, snorkeling, or relaxing by the pool before returning to the yoga shala for a restorative afternoon practice and a stunning Savusavu sunset.

Special offer: Kids go free

Liz Bennett has created a special space within her yoga retreats to encourage parents to bring along their kids. It will be a wonderful way for you to embrace yoga within a family holiday. Therefore, Yoga in Fiji also offers mums and dads the chance to bring their kids aged under 12 for free, including special kids’ yoga classes which is a free 30-minute yoga class every morning after breakfast. They can also come along on all the excursions. At the same time, the kids will never overwhelm the yoga so if you are not bringing children, please don’t worry as the focus of each class will still be on the adults.

Retreat locatie

This retreat will be located at Daku Resort near Savusavu in Fiji. Daku Resort is on Fiji’s northern island of Vanua Levu which is just outside the small town of Savusavu. Fiji has about 300 islands. The two big ones are Viti Levu where you’ll arrive when you fly into Nadi International Airport (NAN) and Vanua Levu where Yoga in Fiji is. But while Viti Levu has most of the population and gets most of the tourism, Vanua Levu is still a sleepy backwater with a small population and a fraction of the tourist numbers. Daku Resort is located in beautiful tropical gardens overlooking Savusavu Bay which is straight over the road at the front.

Behind the resort is the property stretches up the mountain and you’re welcome to walk there. If you turn right out of the Daku Resort's drive, there is Savusavu, a local town which is one-half kilometers down the road (about a 25-minute walk or five-minute cab ride for 4 FJD). If you turn left, there is the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort which is famous for its diving in five kilometers up the road. Moreover, if you drive out past Savusavu Airport (SVU), you’ll come to Tony Robbins' Resort Namale, where his world-renowned life mastery courses take place. So, Daku Resort is in good company. Daku Resort is also surrounded by a wealth of beauty of lush green forests, coral reefs, warm seas, plus the endless warmth of Fijian hospitality.
