Christmas in Fiji

The ultimate Christmas feast

As in Australia, food is a large part of the Christmas celebrations in most Fijian resorts. Huge buffet lunches and dinners are available for guest featuring an abundance of fresh seafood, a mix of cold and hot meats, salads, fresh fruit and pudding for dessert. Fijians traditionally celebrate Christmas with a huge lovo feast comprising garlic spice chicken, beef, pork, fish, cassava and Dalo. Another special dish often served at Christmas time is Palusami, spiced mutton wrapped in leaves and cooked in coconut cream.  Many resorts make a special lovo Christmas feast available for guests on Christmas Day. As with any Fijian celebration, kava is an integral part of the Christmas festivities.

Alone at Christmas? Why not enjoy some Fijian hospitality?

For many people living alone or away from family and friends, Christmas can be a time of isolation and loneliness.  Fiji resorts are a-buzz with activity and people.  If travelling alone, we can advise what resorts make it easy for singles to mingle with other guests.  Some resorts set up huge tables where guests can sit together and celebrate with new found friends.

Afraid sentimentality will get the better of you?

If you’re thinking you’ll get too sentimental (or feel guilty) spending time away from family at Christmas, rest assured most resorts have Wi-Fi suitable for Skype streaming.  Best of all you can connect with family and friends without the dramas of being there in person.

Or, if you can’t bear to spend the festive season away from family and friends why not take them with you?  We can organise a group holiday so you can celebrate altogether.

And finally, just imagine waking up on Christmas morning and taking a leisurely stroll along the beach.  Then spending a few hours by the pool before dressing for a decadent Christmas feast where you don’t have to do any of the cooking or cleaning.   Then back to your bure for an afternoon nap before doing it all again at dinner. Sounds enticing doesn’t it?
