Spend this New Year's Eve in a tropical paradise that literally sits on the brink of time - our unique location close to the International Date Line means that you get to welcome 2017 before anyone else in the world ... and the Fijians sure know how to throw a party!
The Fijian and Indian-Fijian heritage and culture will be celebrated with a magical evening under the stars. We have an extra special program planned to celebrate. Several secluded island locations - from land to sea - have been selected, with unique cultural experiences at each location.
The most incredible New Years Eve begins with tropical cocktails and Fijian savouries. Surrounded by warriors and the Turtle Island choir singing in the background, you'll feel like you're in your own Fijian village. Board the HMS Sunset Cruise with Ship Captain Arthur and cruise over to one of the islands private beaches where you will experience a "Kabu" (pronounced "kam-boo") performance. This Kabu performance is not like your typical Fiji resort fire dance... it's unlike anything you have ever seen before. This intricate performance has been handed down from generation to generation in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji and is only performed authentically by one of the villages in our community called Matacawalevu.
As the sun slips beyond the horizon, the boat cruises back to the Boat 6 Grill where a celebration of the Indian-Fijian culture takes place. From indian delicacies, prepared by our Indian-Fijian staff, to a historical presentation on the Indians' migration to Fiji, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the two cultures. Arrive back at the front beach to indulge in a three course dinner while listening to music from a live Fijian band. Sip champagne, laugh, sing and dance the night away with your family, fellow guests and staff.
We haven't given away the entire program, so you'll have to join us to experience the many events that will be left as a surprise just for our guests!
For our Younger Guests...
Fijians believe that family and friends are the most important things in life. We’ve honored this cultural tradition, and have created a new sense of community, called the Turtle Family, complete with a nurturing, teaching, and fun-loving staff.
We provide every child 5 and under with a Nanny. From 6 years and above, every child has their own “Bula Buddy” to be a companion and playmate. Parents can relax and enjoy their New Years Vacation, safe in the knowledge that their children are constantly under the watchful eye of our dedicated, loving Turtle Island care givers.
