Day tour information:
Thermal Mudpool & Garden Tour
This tour starts with the opportunity to explore the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, famous for its collection of orchids and tropical plants. This tranquil garden was founded by Raymond Burr in 1977. Your next stop is the Thermal Springs and Mud Pools, an array of natural pools to soothe your bones and cleanse the skin, or so they say! Stop by the side of the road on the way back to your resort for some road side tropical fruit or a cold coconut to finish off your day.
Coral Coast Heritage tour
Explore one of Fiji’s most famous tourist regions the Coral Coast. Famous for its amazing shore line, the Coral Coast has plenty to offer and this tour covers the highlights. Take in the amazing lookout over the Mamanuca Island Group from the WW2 Momi Battery. Guns and bunkers were set up here during World War II to protect Nadi from a potential attack by the Japanese. One of the bunkers has been turned into a museum with photographs documenting its history.
