Fun, Festivities and Fijian Culture! Crusoe’s Retreat in Fiji Prepares For The Annual Holiday Fiji Day In October
By Ciaran Warner
Recently revitalised and more idyllic than ever, the private and intimate sanctuary of Crusoe’s Retreat in Fiji is now gearing up for one of its countries’ most significant public holidays – Fiji Day.
Celebrated on October 10th every year, Fiji Day was created to commemorate two anniversaries at once – the signing of the Deed of Cession in 1874, which began the century-long process of Fiji gaining independence from British rule, and the same date in 1970, when Fiji finally became a fully independent nation.
Fiji Day, which will take place on Wednesday this year, is eagerly anticipated at Crusoe’s Retreat, with both good fun and great deals on offer at the beautiful resort to celebrate this Fijian holiday.
“We’ve got bilibili (bamboo raft) races, food stalls by the beach, all sorts of fun at Crusoe’s this Fiji Day,” says Scott Lee at Crusoe’s Retreat in Fiji.
“We had similar things at last New Year’s, and we’re really looking forward to this Fiji Day.”
Fiji Day is preceded by Fiji Week, which is a period of celebration throughout the country. The main event for Fiji Day takes place in Labasa, on the Fijian Island of Vanua Levu, where the locals dress up, perform re-enactments, put on cultural and religious performances, host a military parade, and more. However, those on Viti Levu, the largest of the Fijian Island and home to Crusoe’s Retreat, will have no shortage of opportunities to celebrate Fiji day at Crusoe’s Retreat this year!
This makes Crusoe’s Retreat the perfect place to celebrate Fiji Day this year, and witness the breathtaking beauty of the Coral Coast while experiencing true Fiji culture and history.
And now that spring has sprung and summer is on it’s way, it’s a perfect time to take advantage of the specials on offer at Crusoe’s Retreat in Fiji throughout October in honour of Fiji Day.
“We’ve got some great specials - $170 per night, or $300 for 2 nights, valid until the end of October,” says Scott.
“It’s going to be a fantastic time. Come and have some fun at Crusoe’s, it’ll be great for everyone, and we know you’ll love it.”
Whether you’re in the mood to relax by the beach with a cocktail at Crusoe’s Retreat’s Taki Beach Bar and Grill, unwind in their new 22-seater spa pool, learn to scuba-dive or snorkel at the PADI-certified Coral Coast Divers, or simply kick back and enjoy this culture-rich Fijian holiday, Crusoe’s can provide.
