Here are just a few of the Fijian cultural experiences you will experience in Vorovoro:
The Ubiquitous Kava Ceremony
Rooted deep in the Fijian way of life, the kava ceremony is a ritual steeped in respect, camaraderie, and community building. It's a chance to connect, extend a warm welcome to newcomers, honor guests, and fortify the bonds of friendship and family. Kava and its significance are woven throughout every part of native Fijian life. While you are with us in Vorovoro, you will have many opportunities to gather around the tanoa (kava bowl) with us!
The Lovo Feast
Experience the culinary authenticity of Vorovoro with a Lovo, a traditional feast cooked in an underground oven. The slow-cooked delicacies infused with the earth's natural flavors are delicious examples of Fiji's rich culinary heritage. You will have the opportunity to not only feast upon the amazing foods that come from the Lovo but help with the unique preparations as well!
Meke, a captivating blend of song and dance, narrates the legends, historical tales, and romantic sagas of Fiji. Each movement and melody offers a glimpse into the community’s storied past.
When visiting Vorovoro, it’s important to follow local etiquette. Don’t worry - that’s why we are there; we will help you!
