On the very exclusive Turtle Island, a 35 minute float plane flight from Nadi on the largest island, Viti Levu – is a resort of the same name.
At Turtle Island, water sports, on land activities and cooking lessons are included at this exclusive ‘club’ where only 30 guest can be accommodated in the traditional but certainly updated bures (cottages).
On a sunny morning on the verandah overlooking the multi aqua blue waters, two of the resort’s chefs showed their talent with easy to make recipes. For more information about Turtle Island, go to Hotels and Destinations on WWW.INDULGEDTRAVELER.COM
