Natural, gracious hospitality is at the core of Fijian culture. At the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, the staff represents the epitome of the Fijian lifestyle and its community values, welcoming guests with warmth and friendship.

The Fijian people play instruments and sing at every opportunity. Music seems to be everywhere. In the evenings the traditional Kava Ceremony is practiced by the resident musical group. You are always welcome to participate.



Experience a visit to the traditional Fiji village of Nukubalavu (“long beach”), located just two miles south of the resort and home to many of our staff. Rural villages throughout Fiji form an important part of the Fijian community structure. You will be welcomed into Nukubalavu to experience the culture first-hand and enjoy the Meke (dance) and singing by the village people. Visits to Nukubalavu are organized for resort guests every week.
