We flew from Nadi to Savusavu the location of Daku resort. During our time at the resort we were the only ones there with a few exceptions. The staff was very helpful. Before the first day was over they knew all of our names and used them whenever they were addressing us. There were several types of accommodations I stayed in a "bare" which was basically a one bedroom cabin with an attached bathroom and an outdoor shower. The grounds were nicely landscaped and there were a lot of interesting flowers. They had a nice swimming pool although I don't recall any of us using it except for an initial tryout of our snorkeling gear. Most of our dining was outside alongside the pool and breakfast and lunch was generally served buffet style. The first evening we were entertained with "Yaqona" and "Tabua" ceremonies of welcome. On the final day of our stay our dinner was cooked in an inground oven called a lovo and we had a farewell ceremony called "Bulu Yava". The owner of Daku was an interesting man called JJ who spent a lot of time socializing with us.
