The village of Viseisei (meaning to "spread out") is fabled to be near the place where the Fijian people first settled Fiji about 3500 years ago.
For travellers wanting a pit stop or short break before travelling on to other villages in Fiji this is the ideal overnight starting point. It is located just 15 minutes by taxi from Nadi International Airport. Up to ten guests can be accommodated by your host Tony Tavai who has direct connections with the President of Fiji. The President of Fiji stays in Viseisei and his stately home is surrounded by historical monuments and buildings in the village reflecting the importance given by the people to the area known as First Landing.
Your host Tony Tavai
Tony's wife, Mele, is an excellent cook and offers Fijian cooking lessons as one of the guest activities. Her pineapple and coconut cake is legend - even in Viseisei where she used to sell slices for F$1 a piece. For guests who want to stay a bit longer than one night there are plenty of other activities - and the free village tour is well worth the time - as is the short trip to Vuda, the site of Fiji's first village established about 3500 years ago during your holidays in Fiji. (The good citizens of Viseisei moved to their current location from Vuda Village a long, long time ago).
