Culture & Heritage

Culture & Heritage

The inhabitants of modern Fiji are of indigenous Fijian background, as well as of Indian, Chinese and European ancestry. Indigenous culture has shaped the nation and is an active and living part of everyday life for the majority of the happy folk that live here. Our unique blend of cultures can be seen throughout Fiji, and in virtually every aspect of your stay - from the food, festivals, rituals and the arts.
Various crafts give us a unique identity that along with traditional etiquette and local architecture tells a story of our culture and its evolution over time. Historical artefacts and documents that depict this story are preserved and displayed within museums and protected as National Heritage Sites. One such site is the first colonial capital of Fiji, Levuka. The town symbolises a period of influence on the country’s development, deemed so significant to the region, this quaint little port town and her buildings were proudly protected under UNESCO World Heritage listing in 2013. Many more of Fiji’s cultural structures have withstood the test of time to remain an integral symbol of important moments in Fiji’s history. Kava drinking for example, synonymous with life in the South Pacific, is still very much a part of life in Fiji. It is likely that you will be invited to join a kava ceremony during your stay. After the formalities, this is a wonderful way to make new friends and learn a little more about their country. Dig a little deeper and see what you can discover!
