It’s true what they say, Fiji is perfect for honeymoons, family getaways, girls trips and bucks parties. But did you know the South Pacific island nation is also ideal for meetings & conferences?

It’s true, Fiji is the perfect spot for business because… it’s not all business.

Of course, plenty of work will get done among the palm trees and blue waters, but so too will vital team building and emotional wellbeing.

According to Nanuku Auberge Resort’s General Manager, Sascha Hemmann, Fiji is one of the happiest countries in the world, and this cheerful disposition can greatly benefit not just holidaymakers but corporates.

Now that you’re on board for a work trip to Fiji, it’s time to convince the boss. Here are a few things that could get your company’s leader across the line:

 

1. TO EMBRACE FIJI TIME

The leisurely pace is well observed and respected in Fiji. Sascha says: “It usually takes our business travellers or corporate groups a couple of days to assimilate, but once they adapt to the tranquillity, they are more productive, especially from a forward-planning perspective.”

 

2. TO VALUE TEAM-BONDING

Nanuku Auberge believes there is no greater way to learn about your team than to take them out of their corporate environment and see them at play. The resort’s location at Pacific Harbour (aka The Adventure Capital of Fiji) allows guests to enjoy over 50 land/sea activities; initiating the ideal environment for teams to establish/renew their camaraderie and team spirit.

 

3. TO EMBRACE THE POWER OF GROUP EXPERIENCES

Traditionally Fijian Kava ceremonies are held before or during business meetings and can be used to strengthen ties or resolve conflicts between groups.

Sascha says: “Whenever we introduce the time-honoured ritual to our business travellers, it unites them on a deeper level; having experienced a new and compelling experience as a team.”

 

4. TO VALUE STRESS-REDUCTION

“Whether it’s visiting Nanuku’s Wellness Centre & Spa, holding meetings on the beach, or Nanuku’s private island, the simple action of reducing stress allows our business travellers to unwind and unlock their creativity; to forge new ideas and a well-constructed vision for the future,” Sascha added.

 

5. TO EMBRACE TEAM RITUALS

Every morning the Nanuku staff gather together for an uplifting morning stretch and song routine. Sascha explains: “We always encourage our corporate groups to join us. We see time and time again their interest in creating their own morning ritual back home; to unite them as a team, set the day’s agenda and frame a positive mindset.”
