They say that Crusoe’s Retreat is Fiji’s best kept secret, nestled amongst lush tropical gardens and fronting a palm-fringed sandy beach and stunning lagoon.
Crusoe’s Retreat is a friendly, intimate, traditional Fiji Resort, featuring only 28 Fijian-inspired bures, truly embodying all that is wonderful about the Fiji Islands including world-famous hospitality, an unhurried pace, fresh island cuisine, lots of complimentary activities, and a Fiji Resort dedicated to local culture and traditions.
Crusoe’s Retreat is described as truly Fiji, with Crusoe’s Retreat set apart from all other Fiji Resorts because of its unbeatable location, hidden away, off the beaten track, on Fiji’s famous Coral Coast, an isolated, quiet, casual Fiji Resort located directly next to a traditional Fijian Village.
Guests at Crusoe’s Retreat have the unique opportunity to visit and spend time with local Fijians, experiencing traditional Fijian village life firsthand, and discovering for themselves why Fijians are widely recognized as the friendliest people on earth, with the lasting memories guests have of their stay at Crusoe’s Retreat being the time that they spend with the friendly local Fijian staff, as well as the time spent visiting the neighbouring village.
Crusoe’s Retreat features many complimentary resort activities, including Fijian cultural activities like Learn to Speak Fijian, Learn to Cook Fijian, traditional Fijian weaving, Sulu-tying, a weekly Meke (traditional Fiji village singing and dancing performance), kava ceremonies, and so much more.
I met Paul Rec of Crusoe’s Retreat and Alex Hill of South Pacific Diving Adventures, who operate the diving at the resort, at Fijian Tourism Expo 2015 and to hear what they had to tell me, click on the video box below:
