We welcome our five night guests to the beautiful island of Viti Levu, Fiji.
Our Fiji Airways flights will land in the afternoon with our tour coaches waiting outside to take a leisurely drive to the luxurious Shangri-La Resort where you will be greeted with a hearty Fijian ‘Bula!’.
If you’ve booked your own flights, we’ll have a very warm welcome and everything covered for you from check in at the Resort.
The resort is located on the beautiful 109-acre private Yanuca Island with its pure white sandy beach and crystal clear, coral rich seas of the exotic Fiji Islands. Only 45 minutes from Nadi International Airport. Your Ocean Deluxe Rooms offer a luxurious space with all the modern amenities for an incredible time in Paradise!
This is the perfect day to get a little R&R in before the real action kicks off tomorrow. Shangri La Resort is an incredible venue, offering a 9-hole Executive golf course designed by Peter Thomson, onsite pools, free non motorised water sports, luxurious in-house spa and 5 dining concepts and 3 bars, all on the waterfront
The resort doesn’t stop there, it also has an incredible kids club included in your package that changes daily which means you can drop the kids in the morning while you relax or get in some pre-tournament training!
You can download a copy of an example kids club timetable here.
This evening we will welcome our three night guests followed by a Sevusevu, a traditional Fijian protocol that involves the presentation of kava (bundle of waka roots) to the village chief upon arrival, before canapes & cocktail function with all of our guests.
Rise bright and early to fill your boots at the incredible breakfast buffet. Double check your kit bags and jump aboard the Fiji buses to Lawaqa Park for the Fijian Cup Official Opening Ceremony.
Tournament timings run like clockwork. The tournament format will provide each team with a minimum of three games on each day of the preliminary rounds.
The tournament concludes at 2 pm each day.
