Nakia Eco-Resort

Fiji, South Pacific


An Introduction to Fiji


Tropical rainforests with rare native birds and spectacular waterfalls … pristine beaches … and world-class coral reefs await you at Nakia Resort & Dive. Intimate and family-owned, Nakia is the only eco resort on Taveuni Island; and consistently rated highly in reviews of resorts in the entire South Pacific.

Nakia also is the only resort on Taveuni with family-operated diving, snorkeling and adventure programs. Through Taveuni Ocean Sports at Nakia, the owners’ daughter Julie and partner Aaron together with local divemasters, offer the most comprehensive diving program available on the island, serving first–time divers through divers seeking Advanced Open Water PADI certification. Taveuni Ocean Sports at Nakia also offers snorkeling, surfing and boating, using a meticulously maintained 10–meter (34–foot) custom aluminum dive catamaran. After a full day, guests may relax at Nakia’s lavish 12–meter (40–foot) fresh–water swimming pool – the largest on Taveuni Island – and enjoy fresh organic food at Nakia’s fine Cliffhouse Restaurant.

Nakia Resort & Dive is extraordinarily appealing to nature lovers, families and divers. The resort occupies ten spectacular acres of tropical gardens, surrounded by forest, with an ocean view unrivaled anywhere in the world. Nakia’s pristine setting is between the two small towns on Taveuni with the island’s other resorts and shops. This rural location means that Nakia’s guests fully experience nature in a serene and expansive setting of exceptional beauty. Yet Taveuni’s towns and hidden beaches are just a short bike ride away, using the resort’s complimentary deluxe mountain bikes.

Nakia is intimate and private with just four bures (Fijian cottages), accommodating 10 guests. Each bure has a veranda and hammock, overlooking the Somosomo Strait and Rainbow Reef. Bures have bathrooms with showers, on-demand hot water, 24-hour 240 volt power, daily maid service, and ample beach and bath towels.

They are furnished with:

  • elevated ceilings with fans
  • cool tile floors
  • comfortable locally–made furnishings
  • premium mattresses
  • side tables and chairs
  • ample closet space
  • a refrigerator
  • locally-crafted
  • decorative mats
  • fabrics and wood carvings
  • and fresh tropical flowers

As an eco resort, Nakia offers a comfortable and relaxing environment using the sustainable, natural energy of the sun, wind, and water. The resort’s water is from artesian springs and fresh organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers grow year-round on site. This combination of sustainable features is unique among Fiji resorts.

An Introduction to Fiji

The Fiji Islands, in the South Pacific, are an archipelago of over 330 islands packed with attractions that can be found no where else. They lie at the crossroads of the Pacific, between North America and Australia, and have an interesting blend of various cultures, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indian, European and Chinese. This blend is reflected in the food, the language, architecture and ambiance.

Colonial Levuka, the old European trader settlement and Fiji's former capital, has been officially designated a historic town. A number of buildings date from its boom period in the late 19th century and the main streetscape is surprisingly intact, giving the impression of a town that has stopped in time. Likewise, Suva’s British influence is reflected in its many colonial buildings, including Government House, the Suva City Library and the Grand Pacific Hotel.

Despite outside influences many traditions have remained intact  and today’s visitor can observe time-honored traditions, explore ancient relics, experience well-preserved cultures and share in past legends as they are retold around the kava bowl, Fiji’s traditional ceremonial and social drink.

A nature lover's delight, Fiji has an unspoiled, unique environment of extreme beauty and tranquility. Adrift for millennia in splendid isolation in the blue of the South Pacific it has escaped the evils of industrial progress, the incursions of dangerous animals, poisonous snakes, spiders and pestilent diseases such as malaria.

If variety is the spice of life, then Fiji is scuba diving's red hot chili pepper.

Trying to sum up the special appeal of these waters is like packing a bag for an epic journey through four seasons - or editing years of underwater video into just 30 minutes of tape!

Most people know Fiji as the soft coral capital of the world and that’s true!  But soft corals are only a symbol of Fiji’s complete story: the soft corals vibrant colors and giant size, the diversity of fish and invertebrates that live among their branches, the dramatic changes they undergo in an ancient rhythm of survival with the tides and currents, and the many types of underwater environments in which they thrive.

Fiji’s remarkable soft corals embody all the elements that make Fiji’s reefs so exceptional.  Drama and diversity, brilliant lavish panoramas, deep water rich with food and hiding places for the mysterious and rare Fiji’s marine realm is as dynamic and splendid as nature can be.

With 333 islands surrounded by reefs and the entire spectrum of  underwater terrain, from sharks, rays and 1000 species of fish to the vivid rainbow of  soft corals, sea stars and myriad shrimp, one word does describe Fiji’s extremely diverse diving: color.

Fiji is the color of your wildest dreams - surrender to it and enjoy the view.
