Bula! Fiji Bubble is Bursting With Freshness
New experiences to try
BULA! You hear this a lot (and loud) in Fiji. It’s more than a greeting, it’s the spirit of the country. With 333 islands, white sandy beaches and year-round tropical warmth, it is hard not to feel happy and relaxed in this Pacific Island nation. You won’t be able to escape the friendliness of the Fijian people or the sheer natural beauty – get ready for swaying palms, warm, clear water and a much slower pace, also known as ‘island time’!
Tourism is a large part of the Fijian economy, and with two years of no visitors, it has been using the time to spruce things up and create new experiences. Now they are ready to warmly welcome you and provide a holiday to remember. Here’s what’s new….
South Sea Sailing Day Catamaran, Sabre
South Sea Cruises newest day trip experience, Sabre, has you sailing around the Mamanuca Islands. The Luxurious catamaran has large shaded canopies and a range of seating options for you to get your tan on. From beanbags to booths, there is plenty of room to enjoy the archipelago of stunning islands from the water. Enjoy a gourmet morning tea as you depart, and a buffet style lunch designed by their executive chef with a fully stocked bar.
Headed by executive chef Lance Seeto, Kanu uses native ingredients and traditional techniques to create contemporary dining experiences. Lance has submerged himself in the pacific way of life, history and communities over the decade and his cuisine is a fusion of flavours that reflects his travels and experiences.
