Hiking & Waterfall Tours
Namale's grounds span over 525 acres, the majority of which is virtually untouched rainforest. Take guided or solo hikes into the beautiful and lush landscape on one of two trails of varying difficulty. Take the wooden staircase down to discover our private, hidden waterfall tucked away beneath the verdant canopy, and enjoy a refreshing dip in the freshwater pools where it's just you and your partner - the perfect ending to a long and contemplative hike.
Tidepools & Reef Walks
Part of what makes Fiji so unique is the volcanic composition of its islands, which not only lend to the incredibly lush landscape, but also which surround the coasts in beautiful reefs abundant with marine life, colorful coral, and varying shades of blue and green waters. At low tide, explore Namale's coastal tidepools, on your own or guided by staff, and search for tropical fish, crabs, octopus, and even turtles and dolphins off shore. Walk the reefs to our ocean blowhole, which naturally shoots sea water high into the sky for a dazzling and memorable display.
Golf & Putting Green
Show off your golf skills or practice for fun at our very own private 9-hole golf course, tucked within our magnificent grounds. You'll have access to all the equipment you need including clubs and tees, and the course if available for your pleasure at your leisure. Attempt a great shot at our challenge hole, or enjoy the stunning vistas of the tropical landscape and ocean on the horizon from atop the lush bluffs near the course.
Celebrate Fiji's vibrant people and traditions with weekly cultural nights hosted at our Main Bure restaurant. Learn what the Bula Spirit is all about through exhilarating dance acts, village choir performance, and traditional Meke performance - a vibrant presentation of song and dance which tells the history, love stories, and legends of the islands, encapsulating it's incredible spirit. Also celebrate Fiji's large Indo-Fijian population with Indian Cultural Night featuring local cuisine, curry stations, and mendhi painting.
