Nanuku’s Lailai Children’s Club combines fun with a programmed aimed at teaching children something about the culture. Kids can learn how Fijians use every part of the coconut, thread traditional beads or weave a basket. Experiences are especially tailored for your child – nothing is cookie-cutter – and nannies are on standby from eight in the morning to nine at night.
It is often difficult to know what to do with teenagers, but Nanuku has that covered. Older children (aged eight to 16) are paired with dedicated hosts and offered everything from a soccer ball to kick around to a safari adventure. Even evening meals can be individually tailored.
The resort is on the Coral Coast near Pacific Harbour, which as luck would have it is Fiji’s “adventure capital” which means there’s no way your children will be bored. The South Pacific’s only zipline adventure is nearby or kids can try ‘horse-boarding’, where your boogie board is pulled across the lagoon by a trotting horse. You can even take a cave safari and wade by lantern light through Fiji’s largest cave system, or pretend you are Swiss Family Robinson castaways on Nanuku’s own private island.
