Gaiatree Sanctuary, Fiji
A destination for foodies, Gaiatree Sanctuary is an organic spice plantation and nectar lab open for day tours. Ingredients for its threecourse vegetarian dining experience of ingredientdriven Fiji cuisine are picked from the garden the same day they’re served up. All sauces, dressings, herbal infusions, smoothies and juices are made in-house. You’ll learn about edible flowers, native greens and rare spice leaves. The hilltop gardens include a developing food forest with more than 50 varieties of fruit trees, holistic herbs and foods including cocoa, acai, vanilla, starfruit and turmeric. After a guided tour through the lush gardens, settle into the collaborative kitchen and help prepare lunch, or relax with a selection of chilled exotic nectars (think watermelon juice infused with lemon basil and shaved ice) while soaking up stunning ocean views.
