Michelle and Gary have perfected indoor outdoor living, with the gentle curves of the pool melding into the Resort’s restaurant and bar area. As I read my book pool side, my eyes were repeatedly drawn across the landscaped gardens, sugar cane fields, to the sleeping giants face etched in ridge line. Like most guests I desperately wanted to stay an extra night, in my state of exhaustion I was beyond grateful that Fiji has saved one of my best accommodation experiences for my last night.
For those who have a bit more cash and want something more than a dormitory, or a basic ‘love shack’ try a ‘bure’, it’s worth it. The spa bath set in the corner of the room became my happy place after a hectic ten days. The two room bure was immaculately clean, could sleep up to three people, and so relaxing it was almost surreal.
Michelle is an amazing host. She has the ability to welcome you, make you feel totally relaxed and emotionally disarmed...with just a smile. She and her kitchen team prepare all the food fresh and on site, the menu has different specials every night, and yes, the food is YUMMY.
If you feel like doing something a little adventurous, the Sabeto Valley has more hidden treasures to be discovered beyond Stoney Creek. My facial pores can highly recommend the nearby mud-baths and hot pools, and I discovered that October is the perfect time to visit the Garden the Sleeping Giants orchid gardens.
