You’ll be welcomed by local villagers with fresh flower leis, serenades and a kava ceremony with the Chief. Your guide will lead you to the pools, used for generations by Fijians for their therapeutic properties. Thermal mud is rubbed into the skin, you'll enjoy refreshing chilled water while the sun dries the mud. A dip in the hot thermal pools will soothe away the mud to leave your skin exfoliated and smooth! If you have time at the end, check out the local handcrafts for sale.
