Fiji Day 2: Drinks, Sunshine, Snorkeling, Polynesian Dancers, and Bula Bliss

Hi Love Bugs,

Today was wonderful. I swear I think this place is magical or something. The staff at Namale bends over backwards to make you feel special. The hotel can hold up to 44 people, and has about 105 staff members. They do this purposely to make sure each person has more than enough attention.Β To top that off, they purposely only book half occupancy so everyone feels more than accommodated for! Sean and I rarely bump into other couples! We went snorkeling with another couple, and the dive staff took us to the most beautiful reef! It definitely gave the Great Barrier Reef a run for its money! We saw vibrant colored coral, a shark, and a turtle. The food here is to die for. The chefs and pastry chefs really know what they are doing. You can order anything you’d like at any time of the day as many times as you’d like, regardless if it is on the menu. Sean and I woke up and had the most delicious oceanfront breakfast. We then relaxed all day! It was heavenly. Namale allows you to eat wherever you want on property. There are several private dine out locations that we have been taking advantage of. We had them set us up with a beautiful private happy hour to watch the sunset, in which they served us cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, and mojitos before dinner. We ended the night watching the Miller Dance Company, a Polynesian children’s dance company. They were sooo cute, and really good!

Breakfast by the water is the only way to have breakfast! We had a great breeze, and the water was beautiful, what more could you ask for?

I love all of the caves on the island. They are all so different, and beautiful.

We found tons of hermit crabs in the smaller caves.

There is a water trampoline in the lagoon that you can either swim or kayak too! You can also order drinks to the trampoline! We are definitely planning on taking advantage of this soon.

Overall, we had another fantastic day in Fiji. We wanted to take in the views, relax, and enjoy each other. We accomplished just that while seeing beautiful coral reefs, basking in the sunshine, and eating great food. Thanks for following along, Love Bugs! Until next time, Christina
