Fiji's climate is tropical. Between May to October, Fiji experiences the dry season with temperatures hovering around comfortable 25?Celsius/77?Fahrenheit. At this time of the year the southerly trade winds bring cool breezes off the sea and cool nights. During this time we advise you to bring a light sweater and long pants, just in case. November to April is the Fijian summer when temperatures rise up to 32?Celsius/90?Fahrenheit with great increase in humidity. Rainfall during these months is substantially higher, although most of it falls in sudden torrential tropical downpours usually in the mid-afternoon. Mornings and afternoons remain sunny and the sea is often beautifully calm. During the Fijian summer season the vegetation is lush with abundance of tropical flowers and orchids.
Fiji's population is known as the "friendliest of the world". Fijians are proud of their culture and enjoy sharing it. When meeting Fijians you will be greeted with hospitality, warmth and friendliness.
We accept Visa, Master Card and American Express. Some shops and restaurants in town do accept credit cards, while others prefer cash only.
The National Currency is the Fiji Dollar, which is divided into cents.
Nearest doctor and hospital is located about 25min. away in Savusavu town. You're advised to bring with you any special medications you might need during your stay.
Please feel free to dress as you wish while at the retreat and when exploring the area, however, when visiting villages it is required to respect Fijian customs. Sunglasses and hats are not allowed in villages, so it's a good manner for visitors to take theirs off. Shoulders should be covered at all times.
Fiji runs on 220-240 volts/50hz supplied through 15amp 3pin (square) plugs. If needed, we can provide adapters for European and American Plugs.
No Visas are required. All visitors to Fiji must hold a valid passport for at least six month beyond the intended period of stay and proof of a return or onward travel to another country. Adhering to the above, a four month tourist visa is issued to most nationals. Extension of two more months can be issued upon application with the Immigration Department, here in Savusavu.
Laptop computer with Wireless Internet Connection is available in the villa free of charge. There are few Broadband Internet coffee shops in Savusavu town.
English is the official language of Fiji and most residents can speak it fluently. However to greatly oversimplify it, the Fijians speak Fijian and the Indo-Fijian?s speak Hindi.

A personal safe, operated by an electronic four-digit code of your choice, is located in Villa Emaho. (Please note that Emaho Sekawa can not be responsible for any items of value that may go missing from your villa)
