According to a legend which goes back 3,000 years, there lies a magical chest of blessings on Mana Island. When a ship carrying the chest was beset by storms, the chest went overboard and Manamanaedina, the snake god of Mana commanded it to stay there. The legend could be one of the reasons why Mana is amongst the prettiest of islands in the Mamanucas. Shaped like a boomerang, the forest-covered island is lined with miles of perfect white sand beaches, coral reefs, marine life and warm Fijian hosts.
The Mana Island Resort and Spa can be easily reached via scheduled boat transfers, sea taxis or by plane once holiday-makers land at Nadi International Airport. The 300-acre resort features over 150 rooms and suites, allowing each accommodation to have an unimpeded view of the landscaped gardens, hills, the beach and the vast Pacific. All rooms are air-conditioned and have been designed with little touches of traditional Fijian culture and architecture like high-vaulted ceilings, wood flooring and cabinets. The spacious timber decks/ patios outside the rooms are perfect for admiring sunrises and sunsets. And finally, there is speedy WiFi in lodgings and the common areas so clicking and uploading selfies isn’t a problem!
The resort leaves no stone unturned for guests looking for fabulous dining and drinks. With internationally-renowned chef Richard Cross involved with the menus, the meals are justifiably satisfying! The semi-formal South Beach Restaurant features fusion fare inspired by Italian, French, Pacific and Japanese cuisines. On the other hand, the Mamanuca Restaurant offers American Breakfast Buffets, BBQ lunches and Themed dinner buffets. The resort offers one of the largest wine collections in Fiji inside the Latitude Wine Cellar. Here, guests can sample fine fines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Italy, Spain and France – a connoisseur’s true delight with canapes and cheese. Then, there is the Kura Spa outlet, the Hibiscus Café, the Mamanuca Bistro, the Nasu Teppanyaki and the Volovoli café located around the family pool. All in all, there is enough choice and diversity in cuisines to keep a family merrily tasting new fare for weeks!
To burn off the calories from fine dining, there are plenty of activities to adults and children engaged in happy frolic. Travellers can opt for guided tours of the island, learning about Mana’s incredible variety of flora and fauna. There are daily activities, cultural shows and events like Meke dances and lovo feast nights on the island. Note: The Lookout Point provides stunning views of the island and ocean for hikers. It’s a must-experience moment for one and all. Then, enjoying a holiday at the Mana Fiji would be incomplete without the snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, diving and swimming in the clear Pacific waters. The reefs are a veritable treasure, with hundreds of species of fishes and turtles flitting around the happy swimmer.
