A 40minute drive away from Denarau down a bumpy road in the shadow of the sleeping giant you come to the mud pools and hot springs. I did not know what to expect. While I don't think I will be coating myself with mud again anytime soon it was a great experience.
You pay $15 Fijian per adult to enter and you get a very nice guide who will tell you about the place and show you what to do. You pretty much cake yourself in mud (surprisingly it doesn't smell bad at all), walk aroud in the hot Fijian sun waiting for it to dry, wash it off in the muddy pool and then soak in the beautiful hot springs. Awaiting you at the end are some lovely ladies who will give you a massage for $10.
We paid $40 Fijian each way in a taxi that and split the costs with another family from Denarau, which was a lot cheaper than the official tours on offer. The porters at the hotel arranged this for us in no time at all.
They do have a shower at the end in case you didn't wash all the mud off in the pool. Also, I found the mus didn't act as much of a sunscreen so coat yourself before you go as you could be walking around for up to half an hour waiting for the mud to dry.
We took our three year old who did not want to get any mud on her not get into the hot springs but did love the massage. She did have a great time though watching her parents cover themselves in mud.
