First of all Fiji airways is an excellent and very comfortable airline! Business/first class can be pricey but it is so comfortable and the seats lay flat so you are really able to sleep which really helps with the time difference. It’s worth the extra money.
The first resort we went to, Namale, was amazing and life changing. We have travelled a lot and we have never stayed at a place like this! The staff is so genuine, caring, kind, etc… The staff knows each guest by name and calls you by your name wherever you’re at on the property. They are truly there for the guest and make you feel so special and try to meet your every need. There is just a feeling of “calm” around the whole property. The spa is definitely worth visiting. We get massages at Massage Envy but the massage we received there was amazing! The food at the resort is all very fresh and delicious. They actually grow most of their own food that they serve. And any baked goods and ice cream is all prepared from scratch. So you are eating so well, nothing processed. We visited the nearby village where many of the staff live. It is so humble and so very different than how we live here in the U.S. They have very little but are so happy and so willing to share and give what they do have. The people of Fiji really made that place special.
