Nature’s original day spa, the thermal mud pools, lie at the base of Sabeto Mountains. Local villagers welcome you with fresh flower leis, traditional songs and a kava ceremony with the chief. Then, follow your guide to the mud pools, used for their therapeutic properties for generations by Fijians. Rub the exfoliating thermal mud into your skin and then sip on refreshing chilled water as the sun dries the mud. Next, take a dip in the soothing hot thermal pools to rinse the mud away. Your skin will be left feeling smooth and refreshed. At the end, if time allows, check out the local handicrafts for sale.
