One of the most picturesque villages in Fiji, this one retains the traditional bures (thatched huts supported by center poles) that have been replaced in other villages by prefabricated concrete homes.

When you come to Fiji, which is made up of 333 islands, there are many places to stay. If you were to stay up at the Yasawa Islands, there are some traditional villages similar to Navala Village where you can visit, in most cases for free, and experience life in a traditionally thatched bure style village. Many tourists however don't... More

This was the highlight of my holiday to Fiji. I wanted to see the real Fiji and this is definitely it. The drive to Navala from Nadi was fairly long but our driver, Solomon, was excellent, giving us a rundown on everything we passed and telling us all he could about Fiji. We stopped in Lautoka to visit the local... More

Liked the warmth and friendliness of the people which is consistent throughout Fiji - delighted by the children signing, Kava ceremony, handicrafts (authentic and made there), traditional meal. To gain respect of the Fijian people it is a must that you respect their culture by wearing a sarong and covering up - no bikinis, low cut tops etc when visiting... More

We enjoyed the tour very much. I believe the company was called TTF. They provided a very comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle that picked us up at our hotel, First Landing, near Lautoka. The guide, Solomon, was talkative and very informative. Solomon explained a lot about what we saw as we drove through Lautoka and on to Ba where we went... More

well visited. We visited several other villages on our trip. This one is the most "touristy" if you could say such a thing about a local village.

We hired a car and drove to Navala via Ba from Nadi. The road is seal several km part Ba but then changes to gravel. This road is only suitable for 4wd and drivers with experience but the drive is great with fantastic views and friendly people to help you find the way. Upon arrival at the village we were... More
