Owner description: 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.

This village was fantastic. We travelled to the village when on the day trip with sea spray (south sea cruises). The guide was very knowledgable and the kids we extremely cute

The village is pretty but felt like an act. Welcome dance seemed forced and the villagers seemed bored with the Kava ceremony.Tour of Village went 100m finishing up at a donation box. Was nice to see the kids in class.
We were invited back to see the villagers crafts which apparently is their main source of income and trade. We were sooo disappointed to see the same nick knacks and tourist junk in every boutique across the islands.Yes was cheaper but is all the same crap -probably made in China. When asked if they made themselves the villagers all said they made themselves! -no wood turning seen on village tour??? shark tooth, mother of pearl, paua, silver, shells... every piece identical. Was so disappointing as was hoping to see some crafts made by the children like, pictures, book marks and cards etc.
Was a nice lunch and ok day out. The long boat up the river was pleasant and the scenery was lovely. The boat men were fun guys.
I wouldn't recommend this tour based on the village experience.

If you have a day to spend in Nadi the tour to Navala Village is a must. You can still see one frame of the authentic lifestyle of Fiji. The cava ceremony, the hospitality and the respect for the nature are the must of Navala Village. All the people of the village are very friendly and if you respect their customs you can have a wonderful experience. During the excusion, before arriving at Navala Village, you have also the possibility to see many beautifull landscapes.
