Daku Resort is a mile out of Savusavu –a 25 minute walk or a 4 minute taxi ride. To get to Savusavu, you fly into Nadi, Fiji’s international airport, and then take a domestic flight to Savusavu airport – it takes 55 minutes and affords some spectacular views. And then Daku is a 10 minute drive over the hill.
Savusavu itself is a quirky little town. It’s been hidden away from the main tourist beat for many years, mainly because of that extra leap on the plane you have to do to get there. As a result, it’s attracted either the upmarket tourist heading for some of the luxurious resorts, or the adventurous souls who have bothered to do their research and find a special corner of this beautiful land.
And it’s worth it! Yes, for the beauty, but also for the friendliness of the local community. You’ll meet lots of locals when you’re in town and after a day or two, you’ll feel as if you know half the place. It’s home to a mixture of Fijians, Indian Fijians, part Europeans (who are often descendants of some of the early coconut plantation owners) and expats who have built houses along the coast and settled here – Australians, New Zealanders, English, Americans, Germans, Canadians and Belgians. For all of them, this bit of Fiji is their own little paradise and you are most welcome to join us.
