Fiji sevens men’s rugby team took gold in the Tokyo Olympics, and they defended their 2016 Rio title making them back-to-back champions! In 2021, Fiji beat new Zealand 27-12 in the gold medal match at Tokyo stadium. To continue this theme we have started to create a collection of the top 7 – venues, attractions, and places to eat across Fiji. These venues have gained international recognition and breathtaking reviews within the industry.
Escape to the interior mountains of Fiji – visit for the day or stay a few nights. Return to nature at this “unplugged” retreat (no electronics or mobile phones) nestled in the tropical, misty mountain valleys of Namosi Province. Enjoy the many retreat activities, eat locally harvested crops and authentic Fijian meals, and sleep in traditionally handcrafted Fijian Bures (huts) perched on the edge of the crystal-clear Luva River – a favorite swimming place for the locals! Hidden amongst the traditional bures, is a separate amenities bure with flush toilets and showers.

This eco-retreat is an authentic experience. Namosi Eco Retreat is not a resort. It is an “experience”, based on a traditional-style authentic Fijian village. Each Bure (hut) is handcrafted to replicate the traditional homes of the province’s ancestors, using bamboo and palm leaves. The retreat team has gone to great efforts to ensure the authenticity of the buildings, food and lifestyle to replicate traditional Fijian village life.
This means that each Bure is very basic – but with the added comfort of a bed instead of the traditional mat for sleeping, while the separate Bathroom Bure has flush toilets and showers.
At Namosi Eco Retreat the menu is all Fijian food (traditional and modern favorites). For example, breakfast may be coconut lolo, babakau and draunimoli tea while dinner may include root crops, rou rou balls and vakalolo.Your booking is inclusive of all meals.
Food is included in the price of your Bure booking (inclusive of meals, accommodation, and activities).
The meal package includes tea in the morning and afternoon, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and morning and afternoon tea.
The meals we provide are mainly vegetarian and are made from locally grown produce from the Retreat’s farm.
Local Guides are provided for all activities that range from river swimming (option of ‘upstream swimming competitions’ for a laugh); bili bili rafting (can include the teamwork activity of bamboo raft making and racing); mountain and river hikes (several options); ‘beach’ volleyball on the sandy riverbank; river aerobics; personal training activities (we have a trained personal trainer and former semi-professional overseas rugby player on staff); traditional cooking (and the option to harvest your own food from the mountainous crops of Navunikabi Village), and more!
In the evening there is kava drinking, guitar singing and games, bonfire (optional), meke lessons, and more
Namosi Eco Retreat operates a busy annual schedule of corporate retreats, workshops, weddings, and family reunions. The venue has a large Valenikana (dining hall) to host weddings, workshops, and other larger events, plus 10 bures that cater to 40 people (up to 50 children). The venue uses solar powered generator – though being an “unplugged” venue we encourage natural approaches.
Families with children of all ages are enjoying the fun-filled yet relaxing escape to the authentic-style Fijian Namosi Eco Retreat. The retreat is a great place for kids to get “unplugged” away from the internet, phones, television, and gaming and enjoy hiking, swimming, and playing outdoors. Many also hang out with the local village kids who spend their days playing outside and learning farm skills to live off the land.
