The Naviti Resort officially opened their new Fijian Village that displays various Fijian handicrafts made by villagers living near the resort.

What idle land now contains four thatched bure with a hall where entertainment like firewalking and traditional ‘meke’ or dances are staged.

General manager John Duxbury said he was happy with the hotel’s achievement.

“We felt that we needed to showcase more of what Fiji was like and so we decided that we made use of the land and build some sort of village where our guests could have a glimpse of Fijian tradition,” Mr Duxbury said.

“Since there was no village nearby to offer this sort of entertainment we thought of having one in the resort to showcase Fijian culture.”

He was also proud of the management getting together in such a short time for the completion of the project.

“We began with this project in the last three months and I am so proud of the management for their hard work,” he said.

“We have just opened the first phase and will continue from here probably later in the year.”

The bure will feature people from the villages making tapa, pottery, lovo, carving and weaving.
