unearthing the lovo

Once a week, the Outrigger offers a Fijian lovo  or feast with foods cooked the traditional way in an underground oven. Guests are invited to observe the unearthing of the contents for that evening’s buffet dinner which ma include roasted meats and root vegetables such as dalo or taro and tavioka or cassava.

The meal is accompanied by an authentic meke with traditional songs and dances  performed by local villagers. At this resort, it is also possible to view a firewalking ceremony by fire walkers from the island of Beqa once a week.
