    White Sandy Beach

    July 7, 2017 in Fiji

    We were greeted at White Sandy by the traditional music, singing and a big Bula! We were shown to our accommodation which has to be the worst yet. Our bathroom smells like a public toilet and doesn't even have a sink. It's gross! After dropping our bags we sat down for a tasty lunch of rice and vegetables. The portions aren't very big here so I think Simon may be hungry.

    We decided to save our snorkelling trip till the next day so we had a lazy afternoon on the beach.

    Dinner was another Fiji themed night like the one in Wayalailai. This time however they went one step further and not only did we eat with our fingers but also on the floor. The food was again lovo cooked (underground) but it was very tasty. There were a few things however that weren't quite to my taste. The first of which were the sea grapes. They are green slimy seaweed type things that you can see when you go snorkelling as they grow on the reef. It's quite an acquired taste almost like pickles but with salt water filled bubbles when you bite into them. I also wasn't particularly keen on the muscles, if that was even what they were.

    Dinner was followed by some good old Fijian entertainment. To start with, the staff performed a selection of dances and songs for us and then we had to join in. The dance was similar to the Macarena style dance we did on Wayalailai with a twist. After the dances we played games. The second one was a bit strange. You had two circles of people, one inside the other and you had to walk around in opposite directions until the music stopped. When the music stopped, someone shouted out two body parts, for example nose to bum (yes that actually happened) and the person in the inside circle had to put their nose on someone in the outside circles bum. They were like an extreme type of getting to know you games. I did manage to win this one though!

    Day 2 - White Sandy Beach

    July 8, 2017 in Fiji

    At the sound of the mornings drum roll we woke up and headed to breakfast.

    After breakfast we were meant to be swimming with manta rays, an activity we had both been looking forward to, however the mantas hadn't been seen for over a month. We heard a few stories as to why they weren't there, one being the warm water stream they followed not being here yet and another that Australian scientists had disturbed them whilst trying to electronically tag them. Mantas are supposedly very sensitive and intelligent animals so if they feel threatened they will leave an area and not come back. Because of this we just drove out to a nearby reef and snorkelled there. It was incredible to see all the life and fish down there. Our guide at one point just handed Blake a giant blue starfish and we were even face to face with some unwanted jellyfish at some points!

    We had no time limit (Fiji time) on this activity so we were in the reef for quite a while before hopping in the boat and driving back to our island. We got back shortly before lunch where we had vegetable fried rice. It was super yummy but the portion size here is disappointing.

    For the afternoon we did a mixture of sunbathing, hammock chilling and reading/listening to podcasts.

    Dinner was a bit more chilled and we were able to use cutlery to eat our three courses tonight. There is no TV in this resort so after dinner I headed over to the neighbouring resort with a few others to watch the last Lions test. Disappointing result but a tie is better than a loss!

    White sandy beach

    November 20, 2017 in Fiji

    We got picked up by a small boat from the big boat. We arrived there and they played a song for us just as you see in the movies. I went slacklining and learned how to do fire twirling. In the evening tbe guy who did fire twirling he called me and then i had to do it with actual fire. That was really cool! Next day went snorkeling and afterwards again slacklining. All the staff and all the persons tried to walk on the slackline. It was also Sunday so thete were no activities. So we had to make or own. I loved the staff they where all so fun to hang out with!Read more

    Fiji - Botaira Resort Dreamteam

    April 2, 2016 in Fiji

    Das Team vom Botaira Resort ist einzigartig. Aus gastronomischer Sicht eine kleine Katastrophe (nicht die Küche, sondern die Kellner). Wahrscheinlich haben sie nie irgendeine Art von Ausbildung in die Richtung genossen.
    Die fast ausschließlich jungen Männer überzeugen aber mit ihrem Charme, können (teilweise) wunderschön Gitarre spielen und singen, auf Kokospalmen klettern und die Kokosnüsse runterholen, Körbe flechten, ewig lange unter Wasser bleiben und den besten Schnorchel-Guide machen, Boot fahren und Rugby spielen. Sehr schön anzusehen übrigens! ;-p
    Wir haben uns in unseren 5 Tagen dort angefreundet (an einem Tag waren wir sogar die einzigen Gäste in der ganzen Bucht) und am letzten Abend gab es extra für Mama und mich eine Kava Zeremonie.
