My Husband and I just spent 5 days at the resort celebrating out 29th wedding anniversary, and it was amazing! It is hard to capture everything that makes it so unique, location, great food, superb service... it goes on and on... but above all the people are so genuine, friendly and open, and always address you by name, which makes you feel like part of the extended family (how they remember everyone is a mystery).
George, our Villa Buddy shared some great stories with us of Fijian culture and his family, and Ani our Villa Momma was always there to see if she could do something more for us and leave flowers on our bed each day. She really made us feel like special friends.
We arrived on Valentines Day and a beautiful welcome message was written in flowers on our bed, so special. Our anniversary was the next day and we were presented with a wonderful cake from the pastry chef and a song (which had us tearing up) from the fantastic trio of entertainers, who's names I actually did not get to know. They played wonderful ukelele each night for a few hours during cocktail hour and dinner.
So many wonderful memories, so many wonderful people who always took the time to ask how you were and if they could do anything more. From the special welcome and show around of the resort from Vincent, Lemba who always made us laugh with her sense of humour, Jenny and Una, who always seated us at a different table each meal, and Brenton who we shared rugby stories with during dinner time (Fiji won the 7's series in Las vegas while we were there!!) ...to the excellent food from Walter and team. And last but not least to Ben, Nathan, Pula and Isaac, who made sure we had great cocktails and wonderful canapés during cocktail hour and beyond. We also enjoyed a marvellous complimentary massage, which was fantastic.
Our farewell was again very personal with a song and send off from the entire team, we were sad to leave but hope to be back one day in the future.
Thanks also to Karen, the GM, for always stopping to chat and being so positive, which I'm sure is overall a reflection of the attitude of all who work at Nanuku!
Hope to be back!
