Retreat Locations in Fiji
My packages offer standard accomodation, part of the reason my packages are so affordable is because I choose simple comfortable, clean and safe accommodation. A private space to recoup and sleep between retreat activities and a place for your some of your retreat activities to take place such as your Fijian masseuse and herbalist or your yoga instructor for one on one sessions in complete privacy. Your budget and preferences will allow me to offer accomodation options when tailoring a package to suit your needs.
You can click between the various locations listed below to see more details on each.
Nadi (pronounced Nandi)
Is the heart of Fiji, although it is not the capital of Fiji, it is the home of our main international airport and where we will meet you to begin your journey and where we will see you off your journey home.
The retreat you choose will determine how much of your time is spent in Nadi. Nadi is no more than three hours drive from any of our retreat locations and is where I permanently reside.
Sabeto (pronounced Sambetoh) also known as the home of the sleeping giant, the sleeping giant being the prominent landmark mountains of the Nadi area.Within view from almost anywhere in nadi and its surrounding areas this area is the home to rivers, waterfalls, mountains, lush gardens and even thermal activity producing steaming hot pools and mud baths. Being less than 30mins drive from Nadi it is the site of many activities included in Total Wellness Fiji’s retreats and is a very popular destination for visitors.
Natadola Beach (pronounced Natandola)
An absolutely breathtaking beach and by far my favourite, its waves have cleansed me many times, calmed my raw emotions and healed my niggling ails. Its a place where you can take it as hard and fast or slow and laid back as you like, we can train in the golden sands and sprint along the beach with the village horses taking themselves for a swim. Or practice some yoga and meditation under the palms, a massage listening to the waves breaking. Swim out to the reef or paddle in the shallows. Eat a decadent five star resort lunch or picnic on local tropical fruits, whatever your needs, wants or dreams and budget are like they can be fulfilled in this one magical spot.
Rakiraki (as its spelt)
A very raw and relatively untouched spot on the mainland, this is the perfect area to get back to basics and restore your body back to its raw untouched state with our detox retreat. Surrounded by beauty and nature without any distractions from bustling resorts or busy towns and roads. Here you can truly appreciate the view from a top surrounded by green hills overlooking clear blue oceans and see the stars at night. Just like the skies clear of pollution that usually prevents you from seeing the stars, your body too will be cleared of pollution. The pollution that is stopping you from reaching the stars.
This is truly getting off the grid, where tradition still lives and nature still rules. Here in the interior is where you can experience no access to internet, phone service or electricity (other than solar) a full digital detox.
Get unplugged, swim and bath in the rivers cleansing your body and soul, eating mostly farm grown foods you can fetch and forage for yourself. Cook with your retreat mates over the open fire which becomes the central connection point of the retreat, where conversations take place and bonds are made. Nature dictates a physical experience with all activities being a walk away and can be added to by personal training sessions, mountain hikes and highland tours depending on your fitness level and goals. A three day stay is recommended to truly experience the clarity that comes from going off the grid and fully feeling the effects of the natural diet and environment this retreat offers.
We use a very modern gym complex situated in Nadi for your gym based personal training sessions and group fitness classes. Air conditioned and very clean with modern well maintained diverse equipment to suit all fitness levels.
Transportation for activities pre planned on your itinerary including airport transfers and all retreat travel requirements are included in your retreat costs. We use professional licensed drivers with modern air conditioned cars for your personal travel. All of our drivers have been tested and used personally to ensure they are safe and reliable drivers. These drivers will be available to you not just for retreat activities but also if you require unplanned transport at any time during your stay with us. Our drivers have local knowledge and are a wonderful source of information from where to eat, shops to go to, extra activities to do and more but without charging you the “tourist” rates.
