Retreats, Workshops, Weddings and More

Namosi = LESS PowerPoint Presentations and MORE Team-building and Fun.

Namosi Eco Retreat operates a busy annual schedule of corporate retreats, workshops, weddings, family reunions – and soon it plans to start art retreats and yoga retreats.

The venue has 10 bures that cater to 40 people, plus a large river-side multi-purpose venue recently built to host weddings, workshops and other larger events, with access to solar power to run presentations and audio (being “unplugged” we encourage more team-building and less powerpoint!)

Teambuilding for Corporate Retreats

Are you getting value from your team-building investment at your staff retreats?

Let us help you have a retreat all about team-building and learning to work better together as a team, and take time to communicate and get to know each other. Let’s work smarter and have fun.

 

There are many activities available at the retreat, which are adjusted for corporate team-building activities including mini-Olympics, touch rugby, Meke lessons (Fijian dance), traditional cooking lessons, harvest and cook from the fields sessions, group hikes, upstream swimming competitions, bili bili raft making and racing, and more.

What to expect when you book your teambuilding:

  • Custom designed Group Itinerary and Menu tailor-made for your group, prior to arrival and in consultation with the teambuildingmembers
  • Double-size ‘Valenikana’ multi-purpose venue complete with handmade mats and extended canopes to ensure guests stay dry if there is rain (venue approx. 30m length, 15m width)
  • Venue is perched on the edge of the river, gazing over the mini-rapids of the river and its mountain-peaked valley.
  • Catering is arranged by the retreat (mix of traditional and modern Fijian foods – and additional Western foods on request)
  • Audio-visual equipment for Powerpoint and workshop speakers (microphone, audio system, overhead projector, etc can be arranged as required (solar powered or via small generator, depending on requirements)

Weddings, Family Reunions, Yoga Retreats 

Have your wedding with up to 200-250 people at the Namosi Eco Retreat, or enjoy a small and intimate reception and honeymoon venue. Similarly, the venue is ideal for family reunions, group getaways and retreats – yogis can practice in the river-side venue overlooking the mountainous valley.

The largest wedding held at the retreat was 250 people with a wide mix of guests attending from Suva, Nadi, Pacific Islands, Australia, Europe and Navunikabi – the local village!  About 30 close family and friends stayed several nights at the retreat, enjoying their reunion, but the majority of guests drove the 1.5 hours from Suva for the lunch-time wedding then returned in the afternoon (an easy daytrip). The wedding had a full-service bar for wine and beer; separate kava session; full catering for all guests with a mix of Fijian and Australian foods; premium-made tailored wedding cake; disco with DJ and also live band; and more.
