Fijian Delicasies. Traditional Cusine
The large hexagonal bure, 'vale ni kana' - or clubhouse, is our central gathering place consisting of lounge area, dining, self-serve bar and houses a large paperback library. Here you will find books on fish and coral identification, birds, local culture & traditions. Dining is usually communal and a time to share the day's experiences with fellow guests. However, for our romantics or honeymoon couples who prefer to dine alone, our staff are happy to set up a table on the patio. Meals are included in the daily tariff. Our kitchen staff bake breads, pastries, cakes daily and can cater to your dietary requirements.
Although Namena Island does not have ground water nor do we get the rainfall most places in Fiji get annually, we grow our own bananas, pineapples, lemons/limes, papaya, soursop, sugar apples, heart of palm, coconuts and other tropical fruits and vegetables - some are seasonal and may not be available year round but we purchase what we need fresh from the markets in Savusavu or Nadi.
Our cuisine is a blend of local and international fare and staff are happy to share or swap recipes.
